Hi @Edmunds_Priede, I am sorry you are having trouble.

I think this is related to the datatype returned by the split method method in your line 5. While we should probably auto-convert such structures at some point when possible, keep in mind the Python implementation is still in a beta stage.

So for the time being you can first import json and then use acats = json.dumps(cats.split('>')) instead of acats = cats.split('>') to avoid this problem. json.dumps will return a JSON string representation of the Python list returned by your the split method, which n8n can understand.
