How to Check a List is Empty in Python
An empty list in Python is equal to boolean False. We can test this using the Python
boolean() function like this:
items =  print(bool(items))
If a list is Empty Python Code
With that knowledge, we can determine to do something depending on whether a list is empty has no value or not using an
if else statement like this:
items =  if items: print('List contains items do something here...') else: print('List is empty do something here...')
List is empty do something here...
The above code says if
True the list isn't empty so run some code in the block else the list must be empty.
Check a list is Empty with Python if not
We can reverse the polarity of the previous example using the Python not keyword like this:
items =  if not items: print('List is empty')
List is empty
The above code says if the supplied value is not
True, run what is inside the block. The advantage of this is not having to use an
else block in the case of an empty list.
