When to Raise a Python KeyError in Your Code

There may be times when it makes sense for you to raise a Python KeyError exception in your own code. You can do this by using the raise keyword and calling the KeyError exception:

raise KeyError(message)

Usually, the message would be the missing key, but you could provide a bit more information to help the next developer better understand what went wrong.
