Python Flask Basics Welcome to Flask Request args

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

Didn't get the expected 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 ="Hello"):
    name = request.args.get('name', name)
    return "Treehouse {}".format(name)

You are so close! The current code gets the name value from the query string, if present. If not present, it uses the default from the function definition which is “Hello”. The return string is “Treehouse Hello” be default. It should be “Hello Treehouse” by default.

Switch the use of the text “Hello” and “Treehouse” and it should pass the challenge.

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!
