Why is the url I wrote not working

it always say cannot find an url for my views what, did I do wrong?

from django.conf.urls import url, include

from . import views

urlpatterns = [
    url(r'.', views.WelcomeView.as_view(), name='hello'),
from django.views.generic import View
from django.http import HttpResponse

class WelcomeView(View):
    def get(self, request):
        return HttpResponse ("Beautiful")

I notice you only have a '.' (dot) on your regex pattern. What URL format did you want to match to?

You are very close! The url regex route that represents '/' is r'^$'
