Python Python Basics (2015) Shopping List App Refactor

Challenge completed but the code does not work... ? How is this making the code better?

This is answer that was accepted: but if I copy paste this over to workspaces running the .py file returns nothing.

def show_help(): # print out instructions on how to use the app print("What should we pick up at the store?") print(""" Enter 'DONE' to stop adding items. Enter 'HELP' for this help. Enter 'SHOW' to see your current list. """)

def show_list(shopping_list): # print out the list print("Here's your list:")

for item in shopping_list:
    print(item)

def add_to_list(shopping_list, new_item): # add new items to our list shopping_list.append(new_item) print("Added {}. List now has {} items.".format(new_item, len(shopping_list))) return shopping_list

def main():

show_help()

# make a list to hold onto our items
shopping_list = []

while True:
    # ask for new items
    new_item = input("> ")

    # be able to quit the app
    if new_item == 'DONE':
        break
    elif new_item == 'HELP':
        show_help()
        continue
    elif new_item == 'SHOW':
        show_list(shopping_list)
        continue
    add_to_list(shopping_list, new_item)

show_list(shopping_list)
