Now, create a view named article_list that selects all Article instances and returns an HttpResponse like "There are 5 a

Even after string formatting. The code seems to give error

articles/views.py
from django.http import HttpResponse
from .models import Article
# Write your views here

def article_list(request):
    articles_len = len(Article.objects.all())
    stri = "There are "+ str(articles_len) + "articles."
    HttpResponse(stri)

It should be something like this

from django.http import HttpResponse

# Write your views here
from .models import Article

def article_list(request):
    articles = Article.objects.all()
    output = "There are {} articles".format(len(articles))
    return HttpResponse(output)

You are very close. There are two errors in your code:

  • There is missing space before "articles" in the string
  • The return function is missing from the last line

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!
