Python Using Databases in Python Meet Peewee Queries Are Your Friend

Unexpected error: AttributeError: 'dict' object has no attribute 'create'

I am getting an unexpected error that states "AttributeError: 'dict' object has no attribute 'create' "

from peewee import *

db = SqliteDatabase('students.db')

class Student(Model):
  username = CharField(max_length=100), unique=True)
  points = IntegerField(default=0)

  class Meta:
    database = db

students = [
  {'username': 'Adam'   , 'points': 10},
  {'username': 'Oliver' , 'points': 12},
  {'username': 'Darla'  , 'points': 11},
  {'username': 'Asher'  , 'points': 1000},
  {'username': 'Tricia' , 'points': 500}
]

def add_students():
  for student in students:
    student.create(username=student['username'],
                   points=student['points'])


if __name__ =='__main__':
  db.connect()
  db.create_tables([Student], safe=True)
  add_students()

Solved: need to capitalize Student in line 22 so that it reads Student.create(username=student['username']

1 Answer

Student at line 22 has an uppercase S.

Student.create(username=student['username'],
                   points=student['points'])

You also have an error at line 6:

username = CharField(max_length=100), unique=True)

should be

username = CharField(max_length=100, unique=True)

Thanks !
