This Code works in my vscode editor but not in this ide


from django import forms

def not_treehouse(email_end):
    email_lowercase = email_end.lower()
    if email_lowercase.endswith('@teamtreehouse.com'):
        forms.ValidationError('Email is from treehouse staff')

class LeadShareForm(forms.Form):
    email = forms.EmailField()
    link = forms.URLField()
    honeypot = forms.CharField(widget=forms.HiddenInput, required=False)

    def clean_honeypot(self):
        honey = self.cleaned_data['honeypot']
        if len(honey):
            raise forms.ValidationError('Bad robot!')
        return honey
