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.

Any chance you could format your code?

click the Markdown Cheatsheet link just under the textfield to see how to format the code.

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
