Wondered why Context wasn't working, where as if i did return render_template('hello.html', name=name) DID WORK

i could not seem to get context to work

flask_app.py
from flask import Flask
from flask import render_template
app = Flask(__name__)


@app.route('/hello/<name>')
def hello(name="Treehouse"):
  context = {'name': name}
    return render_template('hello.html', **context)
templates/hello.html
<!doctype html>
<html>
<head><title>Hello!</title></head>
<body>
<h1>{{ name }}</h1>
</body>
</html>

Well, when I run your code, I get an indentation error on the return line. Probably want to fix that.
