Python is a dynamic programming language with a dynamic type system (as opposed to a static type system like for example Java), see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamic_programming_language
Among other things, that means that type checks are done during runtime. That means, if Item really does not have an 'objects' member (i.e. Item is not a Django model), this will only lead to an error if this line of code is executed, i.e. you visit the URL that points to the index view function. But if Item is a Django model, this is most likely a false positive of pylint. The Django ORM makes extensive use of the dynamic nature of Python, which can confuse pylint. There is a plugin for pylint to make it work more reliably with Django code: https://pypi.org/project/pylint-django/ Hope that helps, Daniel On Tue, Dec 3, 2019 at 1:34 PM Aaryan Dewan <dewanaar...@gmail.com> wrote: > I was just following this tutorial, on how to make Django apps and how to > display a database to the user.
