You should add the route without the name argument, so that the view is called even if no argument is set in the URL.

Try this:

from flask import Flask

app = Flask(__name__)


@app.route('/')
@app.route('/<name>')
def hello(name='Treehouse'):
     return 'Hello {}'.format(name)

Hope it helps ;)
