Python3 Dictionary: Everything you need to know

Dictio­naries

ages = {"Dave": 24, "Mary": 42, "John": 58}
print(ages["Dave"])
print(ages["Mary"])
OR
primary = {
  "red": [255, 0, 0],
  "green": [0, 255, 0],
  "blue": [0, 0, 255],
}
Dictio­naries are data structures used to map arbitrary keys to values

get Function

pairs = {1: "apple",
  "orange": [2, 3, 4],
  True: False,
  None: "True",
}

print(pairs.get("orange"))
print(pairs.get(7))
print(pairs.get(12345, "not in dictionary"))
...........
>>>
[2, 3, 4]
None
not in dictionary
>>>
A useful dictionary method is get. It does the same thing as indexing, but if the key is not found in the dictionary it returns another specified value instead ('None', by default).
 

Assignment

squares = {1: 1, 2: 4, 3: "error", 4: 16,}
squares[8] = 64
squares[3] = 9
print(squares)
-----------------
{1: 1, 2: 4, 3: 9, 4: 16, 8: 64}
Just like lists, dictionary keys can be assigned to different values.

finding keys

nums = {
  1: "one",
  2: "two",
  3: "three",
}
print(1 in nums)
print(4 not in nums)
print(not 4 in nums)
-----------------
True
True
To determine whether a key is in a dictio­nary, you can use in and not in, just as you can for a list.
