Learn Regular Expressions by Building a Password Generator - Step 39

Tell us what’s happening:

It’s asking me to add a new tuple to the constraints list, using lowercase as the first item and a regex pattern that matches a single lowercase letter as the second item. This is the hint I’m getting when the code is wrong;

" You should add a second tuple to the constraints list. Use the lowercase parameter as the first item and [a-z] as the second item."

I don’t know if I’m adding the second tuple correctly or not, but I’m assuming that’s where my error is coming from. Any insight would be great!

Your code so far

import re
import secrets
import string


def generate_password(length, nums, special_chars, uppercase, lowercase):
    # Define the possible characters for the password
    letters = string.ascii_letters
    digits = string.digits
    symbols = string.punctuation

    # Combine all characters
    all_characters = letters + digits + symbols

    while True:
        password = ''
        # Generate password
        for _ in range(length):
            password += secrets.choice(all_characters)

/* User Editable Region */

        constraints = [
            (nums, '[0-9]')
            (lowercase, '[a-z]')
        ]        

/* User Editable Region */

    return password
    
# new_password = generate_password(8)
# print(new_password)

pattern = '[^a-z]t'
quote = 'Not all those who wander are lost.'
# print(re.findall(pattern, quote))

There’s a small detail missing. How do you separate multiple elements within the list? :slight_smile:

Hi! I’m sorry to re-open this topic. I’m new, and bit lost. How do you separate multiple elements within the list?

A simple comma! Thank you if anyone was trying to reply!

I have tried a comma in every location in the ‘[a-z]’. Any more tips as to its location?

The comma they are talking about should not be inside the brackets, haha, I had the same problem as this guy.
