Need help with this challenge: morse.py on putting classmethod

If someone would kindly point out where I'm wrong, that would be appreciated. Thanks!

class Letter:
    def __init__(self, pattern=None):
        self.pattern = pattern

    def __iter__(self):
        yield from self.pattern

    def __str__(self):
        output = []
        for blip in self:
            if blip == '.':
        return '-'.join(output)

    def from_string(cls, string):
        pattern = []
        for i in string.split('-'):
            if i == 'dot':
        return cls(pattern)

class S(Letter):
    def __init__(self):
         pattern = ['.', '.', '.']

Yeah! Sorry about that. For some reason, I kept getting that tab indentation issue, when everything seems to be proper. I just copy and pasted it into a new file on workspace, and then copied and pasted the entire thing again back and it worked.

You code works fine when I copied and pasted it, cool solution.

Hm, my guess is that this is due to extra white-spaces here and there.

  • Make sure all that of that is alright by checking for any extra white-space indentation errors between functions or classes.
  • Separate function from function by two lines etc.

Hope this helps :star:

If code pasted from forum "fixes" it, then the issue is most likely indentation using a mix of Tabs and Spaces.
