[Zero To Python] Day 6 - Journal Entry Input
One step closer to a working journal
Yesterday, was a big day. Lots of new ideas came your way. You learned about variables, data structures, and user input.
Today is an opportunity for you to practice those skills and move forward on our journal application. There isn’t a new concept to cover, so let’s jump straight into the code.
Let’s Get Journal Entry Input
Today we start with a blank slate. Go ahead and delete the previous code and write in this code:
This is the same code as we finished with yesterday. Nothing new, but it is useful to type it back in again.
Next we are going to add a variable and input to capture the journal text. Modify the code to look like this:
As you can see we added a
journal_text variable. It gets the user input, but it doesn’t give any particular text prompt like we do with the date input. That is on purpose as it matches the design of our new journal entry screen.
The output of this program is this:
And that is our code for today.
Today’s assignment is to add journal text input to your program. It’s very simple and that is by design. If you want some bonus practice play around with different user inputs and errors you might come across along the way.
Easy Does It
Today was about keeping it easy. Yesterday was a lot of new material, so today is the day to let it soak in and practice a bit.
You made progress today, so great job!
