Python 3 Cheat Sheet Official Python documentation on
integer, float, boolean, string, bytes Base Types ◾ ordered sequences, fast index access, repeatable values Container Types
int 783 0 -192 0b010 0o642 0xF3 list [1,5,9] ["x",11,8.9] ["mot"] []
null binary octal hexa tuple (1,5,9) 11,"y",7.4 ("mot",) ()
float 9.23 0.0 -1.7e-6
-6 Non modifiable values (immutables) ☝ expression with just comas →tuple
bool True False ×10
str bytes (ordered sequences of chars / bytes)
str "One\nTwo" Multiline string: b""
escaped new line """X\tY\tZ ◾ key containers, no a priori order, fast key acces, each key is unique
'I\'m' 1\t2\t3""" dictionary dict {"key":"value"} dict(a=3,b=4,k="v") {}
escaped ' escaped tab (key/value associations) {1:"one",3:"three",2:"two",3.14:"π"}
bytes b"toto\xfe\775" collection set {"key1","key2"} {1,9,3,0} set()
hexadecimal octal ☝ immutables ☝ keys=hashable values (base types, immutables…) frozenset immutable set empty

for variables, functions, Identifiers type(expression) Conversions

modules, classes… names
int("15") → 15
int("3f",16) → 63 nd
can specify integer number base in 2 parameter
a…zA…Z_ followed by a…zA…Z_0…9
◽ diacritics allowed but should be avoided int(15.56) → 15 truncate decimal part
◽ language keywords forbidden float("-11.24e8") → -1124000000.0
◽ lower/UPPER case discrimination round(15.56,1)→ 15.6 rounding to 1 decimal (0 decimal → integer number)
☺ a toto x7 y_max BigOne bool(x) False for null x, empty container x , None x or False x ; True for other x
☹ 8y and for str(x)→ "…" representation string of x for display (cf. formating on the back)
chr(64)→'@' ord('@')→64 code ↔ char
= Variables assignment
repr(x)→ "…" literal representation string of x
1) evaluation of right side expression value
2) assignment in order with left side names bytes([72,9,64]) → b'H\t@'
☝ assignment ⇔ binding of a name with a value list("abc") → ['a','b','c']
x=1.2+8+sin(y) dict([(3,"three"),(1,"one")]) → {1:'one',3:'three'}
a=b=c=0 assignment to same value set(["one","two"]) → {'one','two'}
y,z,r=9.2,-7.6,0 multiple assignments separator str and sequence of str → assembled str
a,b=b,a values swap ':'.join(['toto','12','pswd']) → 'toto:12:pswd'
a,*b=seq unpacking of sequence in str splitted on whitespaces → list of str
*a,b=seq item and list "words with spaces".split() → ['words','with','spaces']
and str splitted on separation str → list of str
x+=3 increment ⇔ x=x+3 *=
x-=2 decrement ⇔ x=x-2 /= "1,4,8,2".split(",") → ['1','4','8','2']
x=None « undefined » constant value %= sequence of one type → list of another type (via comprehension list)
del x remove name x … [int(x) for x in ('1','29','-3')] → [1,29,-3]
for lists, tuples, strings, bytes… Sequence Containers Indexing
negative index -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 Items count Individual access to items via lst[index]
positive index 0 1 2 3 4 len(lst)→5 lst[0]→10 ⇒ first one lst[1]→20
lst=[10, 20, 30, 40, 50] lst[-1]→50 ⇒ last one lst[-2]→40
positive slice 0 1 2 3 4 5 ☝ index from 0
On mutable sequences (list), remove with
negative slice -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 (here from 0 to 4)
del lst[3] and modify with assignment
Access to sub-sequences via lst[start slice:end slice:step]
lst[:-1]→[10,20,30,40] lst[::-1]→[50,40,30,20,10] lst[1:3]→[20,30] lst[:3]→[10,20,30]
lst[1:-1]→[20,30,40] lst[::-2]→[50,30,10] lst[-3:-1]→[30,40] lst[3:]→[40,50]
lst[::2]→[10,30,50] lst[:]→[10,20,30,40,50] shallow copy of sequence
Missing slice indication → from start / up to end.
On mutable sequences (list), remove with del lst[3:5] and modify with assignment lst[1:4]=[15,25]

☝ beware of infinite loops!

yes next
while condition logique: ? Loop Control for var in sequence: …
no break immediate exit finish
statements block statements block
continue next iteration
s = 0 initializations before the loop ☝ else block for normal loop exit. Go over sequence's values
i = 1 condition with a least one variable value (here i) s = "Some text" initializations before the loop
Algo: cnt = 0

☝ good habit : don't modify loop variable

while i <= 100: i=100 loop variable, assignment managed by for statement
s = s + i**2
i = i + 1 ☝ make condition variable change ! s= ∑ i 2 for c in s:
if c == "e": Algo: count
print("sum:",s) i=1 cnt = cnt + 1 number of e
print("found",cnt,"'e'") in the string.
print("v=",3,"cm :",x,",",y+4) Display loop on dict/set ⇔ loop on keys sequences
use slices to loop on a subset of a sequence

items to display : literal values, variables, expressions Go over sequence's index

print options: ◽ modify item at index
◽ sep=" " items separator, default space ◽ access items around index (before / after)
lst = [11,18,9,12,23,4,17]
◽ end="\n" end of print, default new line lost = []
◽ file=f print to file, default standard output for idx in range(len(lst)): Algo: limit values greater
val = lst[idx] than 15, memorizing
s = input("Instructions:") Input if val> 15: of lost values.
☝ input always returns a string, convert it to required type lost.append(val)
(cf. boxed Conversions on the other side). lst[idx] = 15
len(c)→ items count Generic Operations on Containers Go simultaneously on sequence's index and values:
min(c) max(c) sum(c) Note: For dictionaries and sets, these for idx,val in enumerate(lst):
sorted(c)→ list sorted copy operations use keys.
val in c → boolean, membership operator in (absence not in) range([start,] end [,step]) Integers Sequences
enumerate(c)→ iterator on (index, value) ☝ start default 0, fin not included in sequence, pas signed default 1
zip(c1,c2…)→ iterator on tuples containing ci items at same index
range(5)→ 0 1 2 3 4 range(2,12,3)→ 2 5 8 11
all(c)→ True if all c items evaluated to true, else False range(3,8)→ 3 4 5 6 7 range(20,5,-5)→ 20 15 10
any(c)→ True if at least one item of c evaluated true, else False range(len(seq))→ sequence of index of values in seq
Specific to ordered sequences containers (lists, tuples, strings, bytes…) ☝ range provides an immutable sequence of int constructed as needed
reversed(c)→ inversed iterator c*5→ duplicate c+c2→ concatenate
c.index(val)→ position c.count(val)→ events count function name (identifier) Function Definition
import copy named parameters
copy.copy(c)→ shallow copy of container def fct(x,y,z):
copy.deepcopy(c)→ deep copy of container fct
☝ modify original list Opérations on Lists # statements block, res computation, etc.
lst.append(val) add item at end return res result value of the call, if no computed
result to return: return None
lst.extend(seq) add sequence of items at end ☝ parameters and all
lst.insert(idx,val) insert item at index variables of this block exist only in the block and during the function
lst.remove(val) remove first item with value val call (think of a “black box”)
lst.pop([idx])→value remove & return item at index idx (default last) Advanced: def fct(x,y,z,*args,a=3,b=5,**kwargs):
lst.sort() lst.reverse() sort / reverse liste in place *args variable positional arguments (→tuple), default values,
**kwargs variable named arguments (→dict)
Operations on Dictionaries Operations on Sets
d[key]=value d.clear() Operators: r = fct(3,i+2,2*i) Function Call
d[key]→ value del d[key] | → union (vertical bar char) storage/use of one argument per
& → intersection returned value parameter
d.update(d2) update/add
associations - ^ → différence/symetric diff. ☝ this is the use of function Advanced: fct() fct
< <= > >= → inclusion relations
d.values() →iterable views on name with parenthesis *sequence
Operators also exist as methods. which does the call **dict
d.items() keys/values/associations
d.pop(key[,default])→ value s.update(s2) s.copy()
d.popitem()→ (key,value) s.add(key) s.remove(key) s.startswith(prefix[,start[,end]]) Operations on Strings
d.get(key[,default])→ value s.discard(key) s.clear() s.endswith(suffix[,start[,end]]) s.strip([chars])
d.setdefault(key[,default])→value s.pop() s.count(sub[,start[,end]]) s.partition(sep)→ (before,sep,after)
s.index(sub[,start[,end]]) s.find(sub[,start[,end]])
storing data on disk, and reading it back Files s.is…() tests on chars categories (ex. s.isalpha())
f = open("fil.txt","w",encoding="utf8") s.upper() s.lower() s.title() s.swapcase()
s.casefold() s.capitalize() s.center([width,fill])
file variable name of file
opening mode encoding of s.ljust([width,fill]) s.rjust([width,fill]) s.zfill([width])
for operations ◽ 'r' read
on disk chars for text s.encode(encoding) s.split([sep]) s.join(seq)
◽ 'w' write
(+path…) files:
◽ 'a' append utf8 ascii formating directives values to format Formating
cf. modules os, os.path and pathlib ◽ …'+' 'x' 'b' 't' latin1 …
☝ text mode t by default (read/write str), possible binary modeb (read/write bytes) "modele{} {} {}".format(x,y,r) str
writing empty string if end of file reading
f.write("coucou") s = f.read(4) if char count not ◽ Selection : "{:+2.3f}".format(45.72793)
2 →'+45.728'

specified, read
☝ if text file → read / write only read next line nom "{1:>10s}".format(8,"toto")
whole file 0.nom
strings, convert from/to required →' toto'
type s = f.readline() 4[key] "{x!r}".format(x="I'm")
f.close() ☝ dont forget to close the file after use ! →'"I\'m"'
◽ Formating :
f.flush() write cache f.truncate([taille]) resize fill char alignment sign mini width.precision~maxwidth type
reading/wriding progress sequentially in the file, modifiable with:
<>^= + - space 0 at start for filling with 0
f.tell()→position f.seek(position[,origin]) integer: b binary, c char, d decimal (default), o octal, x or X hexa…
Very common: opening with a guarded block with open(…) as f: float: e or E exponential, f or F fixed point, g or G appropriate (default), 
(automatic closing) and reading loop on lines for line in f : string: s … % percent
of a text file: # processing ofline ◽ Conversion : s (readable texte) or r (literal representation)
