What am I doing wrong?

I'm relatively new to python, so I think it might be a normal py error

articles/views.py
from django.http import HttpResponse
from .models import Article

# Write your views here

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

@Bruce Röttgers Try this, there was a bracket missing

from django.http import HttpResponse
from .models import Article

# Write your views here

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

In your code, you treated the len() FUNCTION like a method. You were meant to put all of the articles in the len() function, inside the brackets.

from django.http import HttpResponse
from .models import Article

# Write your views here

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