How to convert list to string in Python?

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

There may be some situations, where we need to convert a list into a string. We will discuss different methods to do the same.

Iteration

Iterate through the list and append the elements to the string to convert list into a string. We will use for-in loop to iterate through the list elements.

Example

 Live Demo

list1=["Welcome","To","Tutorials","Point"]
string1=""
for i in list1:
   string1=string1+i
string2=""
for i in list1:
   string2=string2+i+" "
print(string1)
print(string2)

Output

Using .join() method

The list will be passed as a parameter inside the join method.

Example

 Live Demo

list1=["Welcome","To","Tutorials","Point"]
string1=""
print(string1.join(list1))
string2=" "
print(string2.join(list1))

Using map()

We can use map() method for mapping str with the list and then use join() to convert list into string.

Example

 Live Demo

list1=["Welcome","To","Tutorials","Point"]
string1="".join(map(str,list1))
string2=" ".join(map(str,list1))
print(string1)
print(string2)

Output

Using list comprehension

Comprehensions in Python provide a short way to construct new sequences using already provided sequences. We will access each element of the list as a string and then use join().

Example

 Live Demo

list1=["Welcome","To","Tutorials","Point"]
string1="".join(str(elem) for elem in list1)
string2=" ".join(str(elem) for elem in list1)
print(string1)
print(string2)

Output
