How to append multiple values to a list in Python


You can use the sequence method list.extend to extend the list by multiple values from any kind of iterable, being it another list or any other thing that provides a sequence of values.

>>> lst = [1, 2]>>> lst.append(3)>>> lst.append(4)>>> lst[1, 2, 3, 4]>>> lst.extend([5, 6, 7])>>> lst.extend((8, 9, 10))>>> lst[1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10]>>> lst.extend(range(11, 14))>>> lst[1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13]

So you can use list.append() to append a single value, and list.extend() to append multiple values.


Other than the append function, if by "multiple values" you mean another list, you can simply concatenate them like so.

>>> a = [1,2,3]>>> b = [4,5,6]>>> a + b[1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]


If you take a look at the official docs, you'll see right below append, extend. That's what your looking for.

There's also itertools.chain if you are more interested in efficient iteration than ending up with a fully populated data structure.
