How to resolve from flask import request exercise

Import request from Flask. Then update the index view to return "Hello {name}", replacing {name} with a name argument in the query string.

flask_app.py
from flask import Flask
from flask import request

app = Flask(__name__)

@app.route('/')
def index(name):
    return 'Hello {name}'

The argument name is not needed. The key is to use request.args.get("name", "") to get the name from the request. Use the result of this to format the Hello string.
