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

from flask import Flask
from flask import render_template
app = Flask(__name__)

def hello(name="Treehouse"):
  context = {'name': name}
    return render_template('hello.html', **context)
<!doctype html>
<h1>{{ name }}</h1>

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

Oh yeah thanks Kenneth, i'm still getting use to the Strict indentation Python has.
