Python Build a Social Network with Flask Takin' Names Form View

It looks like Task 1 is no longer passing... why?

I'm pretty sure I'm doing everything task 2 is asking me to do correctly, but this kind of error usually happens when you type something wrong or the like, and I can't for the life of me figure out what it is.

lunch.py
from flask import Flask, g, render_template
from flask.ext.login import LoginManager

import forms
import models

app = Flask(__name__)
app.secret_key = 'this is our super secret key. do not share it with anyone!'
login_manager = LoginManager()
login_manager.init_app(app)


@login_manager.user_loader
def load_user(userid):
    try:
        return models.User.select().where(
            models.User.id == int(userid)
        ).get()
    except models.DoesNotExist:
        return None


@app.before_request
def before_request():
    g.db = models.DATABASE
    g.db.connect()


@app.after_request
def after_request(response):
    g.db.close()
    return response

@app.route('/register')
def register():
    form = SignUpForm()
    return render_template('register.html')
models.py
import datetime

from flask.ext.bcrypt import generate_password_hash
from flask.ext.login import UserMixin
from peewee import *

DATABASE = SqliteDatabase(':memory:')


class User(Model):
    email = CharField(unique=True)
    password = CharField(max_length=100)
    join_date = DateTimeField(default=datetime.datetime.now)
    bio = CharField(default='')

    class Meta:
        database = DATABASE

    @classmethod
    def new(cls, email, password):
        cls.create(
            email=email,
            password=generate_password_hash(password)
        )


def initialize():
    DATABASE.connect()
    DATABASE.create_tables([User], safe=True)
    DATABASE.close()
forms.py
from flask_wtf import Form
from wtforms import StringField, PasswordField
from wtforms.validators import DataRequired, Email, Length


class SignUpForm(Form):
    email = StringField(validators=[DataRequired(), Email()])
    password = PasswordField(validators=[DataRequired(), Length(min=8)])

I just set the methods in the register function's decorator to POST and GET but I'm still getting the same error.

Hiya Daniel! You are very close but you're forgetting something that has to do with the "form" object you created and how to render it in your register.html. Also you might wanna change form = SignUpForm() to form = models.SignUpForm() coz "SignUpForm" exists in forms.py and its already imported but you are not using the full path reference to get to it.

It turns out this was what I was missing, thank you very much!
