II. Lists

Characteristics of Lists:

  • The lists are mutable.
  • A list can store objects of any type.
  • The lists are ordered.
  • The element of the list can accessed by index.

See Cheat Sheets Basics IV. DATA STRUCTURES 1. LIST.

III. Comprehensions

See Cheat Sheets Basics VI COMPREHENSIONS 1, 2.

List comprehensions offer a shorter syntax when you want to create a new list based on the values of an existing list. It is syntactic sugar that makes code easier to read and write.

1. List comprehensions
ls0 = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
[item*2 for item in ls0]
[item*2 for item in range(1, 6)]
# Using For Loops
ls1 = []
for item in ls0:
# [2, 4, 6, 8, 10]
[item for item in ls0 if item%2==0]
# [2, 4]
2. Dictionary comprehensions
dic = {'Alex': 30, 'Bob': 40, 'Carol': 50}
[itemk for itemk, itemv in dic.items() if itemv >= 40]
# ['Bob', 'Carol']
