noneType object is not iterable in Python


This Content is from Stack Overflow. Question asked by Weredoge

I’m trying to make a pathfinding game using A* algorithm, then this error keeps appearing no matter what i do. it’s said TypeError: ‘NoneType’ object is not iterable at “for m in self.get_neighbors(n):”. Sorry for any spelling mistake, English is not my native language.

def astar(self,start,end):
    open_set = set(start)

    #distance of starting node from itself is zero
    g[start] = 0

    #so start_node is set to its own parent node
    parents[start] = start
