Says "don't forget a couple of empty lines before the dunder main." What am I doing wrong here?

I've tried adding more lines, retyping it, etc.

# insert your code here
from flask import Flask

app = Flask(__name__)

if name == '__main__':
    app.run(debug = True, port = 8000, host = '')

Hi! Make sure to follow the code challenge prompts. It's asking for you to add the dunder main with a port and host but it is not asking for the debug. That's what is throwing you off :)

if __name__ == "__main__":
    app.run(port = 8000, host = "")
