i’ve tried replacing offset with key, and it didnt work either

Your code so far


/* User Editable Region */

text = 'Hello Zaira'
shift = 3

def vignere(message, key):
    alphabet = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz'
    encrypted_text = ''

    for char in message.lower():
        if char == ' ':
            encrypted_text += char
        else:
            index = alphabet.find(char)
            new_index = (index + offset) % len(alphabet)
            encrypted_text += alphabet[new_index]
