AlienBot project

Hello can someone help with this project this is my code and idk what i did wrong because after i write my name and say yes to help it return  no_match_intent responses

Without formatting this is very hard to debug, please see How do I format code in my posts? for posting code to the forums.

If that function is getting called more often than you expect I’d highly suggest debugging the logic statements which lead to it being run. So get some print statements or something in your match_reply function to make sure your tests can ever actually evaluate to True (have a look at the values you’re testing and the output of those logical expressions).

hi i just format it can help now please

Have you followed any of the advice previously given?

i dont know to much about how to debug can you be more explicit please

where and what should i print

Learning to debug is part of learning to program, have a think about what set of circumstances could lead to the function you don’t want to call getting called. Try poking around that area.

ok sorry cuz maybe i look dumb i try now and i come to see if i can do something

That’s the best option, it’s very much a learn by doing exercise that kind of debugging. You expect a value to be x the computer has instead stored 0xf3k13400. You need to find out if and when something like this has happened. Work logically backwards from the bit where you know it’s not doing what it’s supposed to.

oh idk what is wrong i see after some testing only describe_planet_intent is working and rest are going to no_match_intent

and this code is working perfect the promblem is where i comented

@tgrtim can help please

i think i found the problem the problem is here:

def match_reply(self, reply):

    for key, value in self.alienbabble.items():

      intent = key

      regex_pattern = value

      found_match = re.match(regex_pattern, reply)

      if found_match and intent == 'describe_planet_intent':

        return self.describe_planet_intent()

      elif found_match and intent == 'answer_why_intent':

        return self.answer_why_intent()

      elif found_match and intent == "cubed_intent":

        return self.cubed_intent(found_match.groups()[0])

Because the loop going though each value and key and if i put an else in final it exit at first
So first key ‘describe_planet_intent’ and value is ‘.\syour planet.*’ that why this work and then if i put else and i write for the ‘answer_why_intent’ it cant get there because is going tought the if first and it exit

So here is the solution :

def match_reply(self, reply):

    for key, value in self.alienbabble.items():

      intent = key

      regex_pattern = value

      found_match = re.match(regex_pattern, reply)

      if found_match and intent == 'describe_planet_intent':

        return self.describe_planet_intent()

      elif found_match and intent == 'answer_why_intent':

        return self.answer_why_intent()

      elif found_match and intent == "cubed_intent":

        return self.cubed_intent(found_match.groups()[0])

     

    return self.no_match_intent()

The return self.no_match_intent() dont need to be in the if condition it need to be outside the for loop and after the program goes thought the loop and it dont match anything it return this.

Thanks to @tgrtim if he told me the solution from the first I don’t learn anything now after I succeeded alone I am happy and I learned and understood some things better

Fantastic. Now that you’ve done this once the next time will be easier too :partying_face:

yee thanks at first i was mad cuz u dont tell but i understand why and thanks u dont tell me
