Python enumerate list | Example code

  • by

The Python enumerate() function adds a counter to iterable objects like a list. This method will allow you to loop over a list of items while keeping track of the index value in a separate variable.

enumerate(iterable, start=0)

The start is an optional argument for counting the index, the default value is zero.

You can also pass a second argument to the enumerate() function to specify the starting index, like this:

fruits = ['apple', 'banana', 'orange']

for index, fruit in enumerate(fruits, start=1):
    print(index, fruit)

Using the enumerate() function, you can avoid the need to manually keep track of the index while iterating over the list.
