not working?

This code is totally working in Workspaces, but not here... not sure why.

from flask import Flask
from flask import request

app = Flask(__name__)

def index(name="Matt"):
    name = request.args.get('name', name)
    return "Hello {}".format(name)

app.run(debug=True, port=8000, host='')

It's not liking what you're doing with the app.run statement at the bottom. If you remove it, then you should be good.
