How to resolve from flask import request exercise

Import request from Flask. Then update the index view to return "Hello {name}", replacing {name} with a name argument in the query string.

from flask import Flask
from flask import request

app = Flask(__name__)

def index(name):
    return 'Hello {name}'

The argument name is not needed. The key is to use request.args.get("name", "") to get the name from the request. Use the result of this to format the Hello string.

Post back if you need more help. Good Luck!!!
