Python Python Basics (2015) Shopping List App Shopping List Introduction

I did exactly the same as Kenneth Love but when the program print my shopping list is displays "DONE"!

I did exactly the same as Kenneth Love but when the program print my shopping list is displays "DONE" instead of my shopping list.

My code:

shopping_list = [] print("What should we pick up at the store?") print("Enter 'DONE' to stop adding items.") while True: new_item = input("> ")

if new_item == 'DONE': break

shopping_list.append(new_item) print("Shopping List:") for item in shopping_list: print(item)

Maybe the ''break'' is stopping the rest of the program... Can someone help me? Thanks.

Looks like it may be an indent issue. Your code works for me--it doesn't print DONE.

shopping_list = [] 
print("What should we pick up at the store?") 
print("Enter 'DONE' to stop adding items.") 
while True: 
    new_item = input("> ")
    if new_item == 'DONE': 
        break
    shopping_list.append(new_item) 


print("Shopping List:") 
for item in shopping_list: 
    print(item)

your code is working absolutely fine make sure you are typing DONE , all letters capital

Place the if 'DONE' block prior to appending to the shopping_list
