Python format dictionary print | Example code

  • by

Use the format() function to format dictionary print in Python. Its in-built String function is used for the purpose of formatting strings according to the position.

Python Dictionary can also be passed to the format() function as a value to be formatted.


Example format dictionary print in Python

The simple example code key is passed to the {} and the format() function is used to replace the key by its value, respectively. Thus, the Python “**” operator is used to unpack the dictionary.

dict1 = {"a": 100, "b": 200, "c": 300}

res = "{a} {b}".format(**dict1)

Python format dictionary pretty

import json

d = {'a': 2, 'b': {'x': 3, 'y': {'t1': 4, 't2': 5}}}
res = json.dumps(d, sort_keys=True, indent=4)



    "a": 2,
    "b": {
        "x": 3,
        "y": {
            "t1": 4,
            "t2": 5

Using f-strings (Python 3.6 and later):

my_dict = {'name': 'Alice', 'age': 30, 'city': 'New York'}
print(f"Name: {my_dict['name']}, Age: {my_dict['age']}, City: {my_dict['city']}")

Using the % operator (deprecated in Python 3):

my_dict = {'name': 'Alice', 'age': 30, 'city': 'New York'}
print("Name: %s, Age: %d, City: %s" % (my_dict['name'], my_dict['age'], my_dict['city']))
