Learn Regular Expressions by Building a Password Generator - Step 61

Tell us what’s happening:

I have tried this many ways and what I have seems to match hints from forum questions, but the step never states it is correct.

Can someone point me to what I am missing?

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}]')            

        # Check constraints
        count = 0

# User Editable Region

        if [constraint <= len(re.findall(pattern, password)) for constraint, pattern in constraints]:

# User Editable Region

    return password

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

Welcome to the forum @tiredoftry

Where is the break code? It was above the return statement.


    return password

Aslo, the for expression needs to go on a new line.

Happy coding

Thansk @Teller. Don’t know where the ‘break’ went as it is still in the actual code. Would be nice if they stated they wanted the ‘for’ on a separate line, but that fixed the issue.
