split() cannot be interpreted as an integer

  ajax, flask, javascript, python, sqlite

I am trying to implement a dynamic drag&drop order list to my webapp. I found this tutorial: https://tutorial101.blogspot.com/2021/01/python-flask-dynamic-drag-and-drop.html

My problem is within the function def updateList(): I get an error when reordering in flask, saying:

File "/root/ilms/app.py", line 124, in updateList
order = getorder.split(",", number_of_rows)
TypeError: 'list' object cannot be interpreted as an integer

I had a look at the result of getorder = request.form[‘order’]:


The result seems to be fine. I see a list of numbers. In the tutorial everything works fine with the next line. I dont understand why this list wants to be interpreted as integer.
