Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 68

Tell us what’s happening:

I added to the param, but i have avoid the errors i dont know what i have to do

Your code so far


# User Editable Region

text = 'Hello Zaira'
custom_key = 'python'

def vigenere(message, key, direction):
    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 
encrypted = vigenere(text, custom_key)
print(encrypted)

Also, comment out the last two lines of code to avoid errors in the console.

It means you should turn the last two lines of code into comments
