Python split string by space | Example code

  • by

The split() method splits a string by space in Python. You can use any separator like a comma, a hyphen, etc, the default separator is any space.

string.split(separator, maxsplit) 

Note: Separator and max split are optional parameters.

The split() method splits the string at each whitespace character (space, tab, newline, etc.) and returns a list of the resulting substrings. By default, if no argument is provided, it splits at any whitespace character.

You can also provide a specific separator as an argument to split(), for example my_string.split(',') to split the string at commas instead of spaces.
