app = Flask(_name_) NameError: name '_name_' is not defined


  1. The error message "NameError: name 'name' is not defined" indicates that there is an issue with the variable 'name' in the Flask code.

  2. In the code snippet provided, the variable 'name' is supposed to represent the name of the Flask application.

  3. The error occurs because the variable 'name' is not defined before it is used in the Flask constructor.

  4. To fix this error, you need to provide a valid name for the Flask application. Typically, this would be the name of the current module, so you can replace 'name' with 'name'.

  5. The 'name' is a special variable in Python that represents the name of the current module.

  6. By using 'name' as the argument for the Flask constructor, you ensure that the Flask application is named after the current module.

  7. Here is the corrected code snippet:

``` from flask import Flask

app = Flask(name) ```

  1. With this correction, the error should be resolved, and the Flask application should be initialized without any issues.
