My search_challenge function doesn't work
I thought I was adding the function correctly, but im getting a syntax error. Am i missing something else?
from models import Challenge def create_challenge(name, language, steps=1): Challenge.create(name=name, language=language, steps=steps) def search_challenges(): challenge = challenge.where(Challenge.content.contains(name, language)

def search_challenges(): challenge = challenge.where(Challenge.content.contains(name, language)

Challenges that meet the criteria.
Now for the specifics:
- You don't have to create a variable called
challengeand assign the results of the query to it; you can just return the query results.
challenge.whereshould be capitalized.
- You should have a
Challenge.namemust contain the
Challenge.languagemust equal the
def search_challenges(name, language): return Challenge.select().where(Challenge.name.contains(name), Challenge.language == language)
