WHY IS THIS CODE NOT WORKING????

shopping_list = []
print("Make any list! To do, shopping list, snd many more!")
print("When you are done type 'DONE' to continue")

while True:
    new_item = input("> ")

if new_item == 'Done':
    break

shopping_list.append(new_item)

print("Here's your list:")

for item in shopping_list:
    print(item)

I do not know why this code is not working.

The if code and the append statement are not inside the while loop. The loop has no exit and runs forever.

Indent the if code and the append statement to be inside the while loop.
