Python Lists – Iterating lists

Lists in Python provide a means of storing multiple items in a single variable. In this tutorial we be iterating through a list in Python which will enable us to the items within the list and more.

We start by creating a list which can be seen below.

MyList = ['Stevie', 'Robin', 'Dustin', 'Will', 'Jim', 'Nancy', 'Mike']

To iterate the list using a for loop, we would do the following.

MyList = ['Stevie', 'Robin', 'Dustin', 'Will', 'Jim', 'Nancy', 'Mike']

for x in MyList:
  print(x)

To iterate the list using a while loop, we would do the following.

MyList = ['Stevie', 'Robin', 'Dustin', 'Will', 'Jim', 'Nancy', 'Mike']

i = 0
while i < len(MyList):
  print(MyList[i])
  i = i + 1
