app.py
from flask import Flask, render_template

from options import OPTIONS

app = Flask(__name__)


@app.route('/')
def index():
    return render_template('options.html', options=OPTIONS)

Hi Oscar,

options is a list and you need to loop through each item in that list. So you don't need the .items() method.

You could call the .items() method on a dictionary.
