Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 63

Tell us what’s happening:

I followed the steps, I did read about how your supposed to have an indentation but I have no clue how to add it and I’m getting more confused by the second :joy: :joy:

Your code so far

text = 'Hello Zaira'
custom_key = 'python'

def vigenere(message, key):
    key_index = 0
    alphabet = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz'
    encrypted_text = ''

    for char in message.lower():
    
        # Append space to the message
        if char == ' ':
            encrypted_text += char
        else:        
            # Find the right key character to encode
            key_char = key[key_index % len(key)]
            key_index += 1

            # Define the offset and the encrypted letter
            offset = alphabet.index(key_char)
            index = alphabet.find(char)
            new_index = (index + offset) % len(alphabet)
            encrypted_text += alphabet[new_index]
    
    return encrypted_text
    vigenere(text, custom_key)
    encryption = vigenere(text, custom_key)

Hi @ali.hzra,

After you return encrypted_text, you should have no indentation, and you must make sure that the custom code you add is within the # User Editable Region boundaries. You only need the encryption = line because the other one is only calling the function without placing that returned value into a variable.
