Python Flask REST API API Protection Password hashing

stuck please assist

Challenge Task 3 of 3 Almost done!

Now I need you to update the create_user method so that it sets the User instance's password using the User.hash_password method you just created. You should see the TODO for where to add this.

import datetime

from peewee import *

from argon2 import PasswordHasher

DATABASE = SqliteDatabase('recipes.db')
HASHER = PasswordHasher()

class User(Model):
    username = CharField(unique=True)
    password = CharField()

    class Meta:
        database = DATABASE

    def create_user(cls, username, password):
        except cls.DoesNotExist:
            user = cls(username=username)
            # TODO: hash user password here?
            return user
            raise Exception("User already exists")        

    def hash_password(password):
        return HASHER.hash(password)

class Recipe(Model):
    name = CharField()
    created_at = DateTimeField(default=datetime.datetime.now)

    class Meta:
        database = DATABASE

class Ingredient(Model):
    name = CharField()
    description = CharField()
    quantity = DecimalField()
    measurement_type = CharField()
    recipe = ForeignKeyField(Recipe)

    class Meta:
        database = DATABASE

def initialize():
    DATABASE.create_tables([User, Recipe, Ingredient], safe=True)

The instructions are pretty explicit for the last task, you just need to replace the "TODO" line (or add one after it) to assign the "password" property of the instance that was just created. Call the method as given in the password, and pass it the correct argument.

i figured it out #TODO==>> user.password = user.hash_password(password) Thanx
