Python, how to create a list from a string

Published Jan 17 2021

Here is how you can create a list from a string in Python.

First you need to decide how to cut the string. For example, every time there is a space.

You pass the ' ' word separator to the split() method that every Python string provides.


phrase = 'I am going to buy the milk'
words = phrase.split(' ')

# ['I', 'am', 'going', 'to', 'buy', 'the', 'milk']
