Looks like issue in challenge task?

when typing from flask import Flask

app = Flask(_ name _)

I always get AssertionError: Regex didn't match: 'Flask[\r\n]{3}app\s*=\s*Flask\(\s*\\_name\_\_\s*\)' not found in 'from flask import Flask \n\n\napp = Flask(name_)' : There should be 2 blank lines after imports.

Regardless of number of blank lines after imports, also the regexp asserted here looks strange

from flask import Flask 

app = Flask(__name__)

In the included app.py file shown above, there is a blank space following import Flask. This space will not match the regex.
