Learn Regular Expressions by Building a Password Generator - Step 54

Tell us what’s happening:

Not sure if I’m just misunderstanding the error: You should write a for loop to iterate over the constraints list with constraint and pattern .

I believe that’s what I did.

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)
        constraints = [
            (nums, r'\d'),
            (lowercase, r'[a-z]'),
            (uppercase, r'[A-Z]'),            
            (special_chars, fr'[{symbols}]')            

/* User Editable Region */

        # Check constraints
        for constraint and pattern in constraints:

/* User Editable Region */

    return password

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

Multiple variables are separated by a comma in a Python for loop!
