How to Convert Python Sets to Lists?

Estimated read time 1 min read

To convert a Python set to a list, you can use the list() function. Here’s an example:

my_set = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}
my_list = list(my_set)
print(my_list)

In this example, we have a set my_set containing the elements {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}. We use the list() function and pass my_set as an argument to convert the set to a list. The resulting list is assigned to the variable my_list.

Finally, we print the contents of my_list, which will be [1, 2, 3, 4, 5].

The list() function creates a new list object and iterates over the elements of the set, preserving their order, and adds them to the new list.

Note that sets are unordered collections, so the order of elements in the resulting list may not necessarily match the original order of the set. If you need to preserve the order of elements, you can use a different data structure such as a list or an OrderedDict from the collections module.
