getting syntax error when looping through items

The task wants you to loop through each item in options and create an <li> ins of the <ul> and print out the name key of each item. I feel like I am on the right track, but I don't know what's missing. Any help is appreciated!!

from flask import Flask, render_template

from options import OPTIONS

app = Flask(__name__)

def index():
    return render_template('options.html', options=OPTIONS)
{% for option in options %}
  <li>{{ option }}</li>
{% endif %}

Yes. You need to proper ending tag for a {% for %}: {% endfor %}. Also, the challenge asks for the name attribute to be displayed, not the option itself, so use option.name.

Good luck. Post back if you need more help.
