Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 69

Tell us what’s happening:

How to describe last two lines? Is it must be smth specific?

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
#Print encryption meaning
encryption = vigenere(text, custom_key,)
print(encryption)

Welcome to the forum @jayfun442

Comment out the last two lines of code, then the step will pass.

Happy coding

“Comment out the last two lines” means you should turn them into comments.
