Lists to dictionary

Isabelle Viktoria Maciohsek · Python, List, Dictionary · Nov 2, 2020

Combines two lists into a dictionary, where the elements of the first one serve as the keys and the elements of the second one serve as the values. The values of the first list need to be unique and hashable.

  • Use zip() in combination with dict() to combine the values of the two lists into a dictionary.
def to_dictionary(keys, values):
  return dict(zip(keys, values))
to_dictionary(['a', 'b'], [1, 2]) # { a: 1, b: 2 }
