Bummer: '/' with a name gave a non-200 response. Did you change the route and the function? This error keep on showing

from flask import Flask

app = Flask(__name__)

@app.route('/<name>/')  
def hello(name):
    return 'Hello {}'.format(name)

This is my current code and I have no idea why this isn't working but keeps on making error messages. What does it mean by "Bummer: '/' with a name gave a non-200 response. Did you change the route and the function?"??

Thank you.

flask_app.py
from flask import Flask

app = Flask(__name__)

@app.route('/<name>/')  
def hello(name):
    return 'Hello {}'.format(name)

You were very close junu park !

It was just that trailing / messing things up. I was able to pass with this :thumbsup:

from flask import Flask

app = Flask(__name__)


@app.route('/<name>')
def hello(name):
     return f'Hello {name}'
