More examples

value = None

# Using the 'is' operator
if value is None:
    print("The value is None")

# Using the equality operator '=='
if value == None:
    print("The value is None")

# Alternatively, you can use the 'not' operator to check if a value is not None
if value is not None:
    print("The value is not None")

Python if not null or empty

Even space or defined variable is counted as a not a null variable in Python. You should define it as a None.

var = " "

if var is not None:
    print('Var is not null')


Var is not null

In Python, None is a special object that represents the absence of a value. It is commonly used to indicate the absence of a meaningful result or to initialize a variable that will be assigned a value later on.
