Python Lists – Join list items in to a string

In this post we will be joining the contents of a list in to a single string, in other words we will concatenate all items together. Lists in Python provide a means to store multiple pieces of data into a single variable. To do this we will be using the ‘join()’ method and it is important to note that this will only work with a list of strings.

See the below list which we will be using for this example.

List = ["Hello", "how", "are", "you", "today?"]

See the snippet of code below where we join the items in the list together along with a separator in between each item.

string = ' '.join(List)

The above would output the following as a result.

Hello how are you today?
