Python Flask Basics Templates and Static Files Template Inheritance

Flask Basics- 'Add two blocks to' not working

The code seems fine. Maybe I'm supposed to edit one of the other two files (I added an extends to the other one jic).

flask_app.py
from flask import Flask
from flask import render_template

app = Flask(__name__)


@app.route('/')
def index():
    return render_template('index.html')
templates/index.html
{{%extend "layout.html"%}}

<!doctype html>
<html>
<head><title>Homepage</title></head>
<body>
<h1>Smells Like Bakin'!</h1>
<p>Welcome to my bakery web site!</p>
</body>
</html>
templates/layout.html
<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
<title>{{% block title %}}Smells Like Bakin'{{% endblock %}}</title>
</head>
<body>
{{%block content%}}{{%endblock%}}
</body>
</html>

I see the extend(s) error. Will fix, but I doubt that's the problem, though if the instructions aren't clear enough...

More than just the extends code, you seem to be mixing your syntax:

Variables are wrapped in {{ }}, directives are wrapped in {% %}. This:

{{%block content%}}{{%endblock%}}

should be replaced by

{% block content %}{% endblock %}

Spaces are required around the arguments, but it makes it a bit more readable.

And it was that simple. I feel foolish (especially since i have the correct code in my text editor right next to my browser). Thx.
