How to Create a Multiline String in Python for Beginners

Sometimes we have a very long string and we want to write it into multiple lines for better code readability. In Python, you have different ways to specify a multiline string. You can have a string split across multiple lines by enclosing it in triple quotes. Alternatively, brackets can also be used to spread a string into different lines.

Moreover, backslash works as a line continuation character in Python. You can use it to join text on separate lines and create a multiline string. Finally, there is string join() function in Python which is used to produce a string containing newlines.

This tutorial explains how to create a Python multiline string. It can be handy when you have a very long string. You shouldn’t keep such text in a single line. It kills the readability of your code.

Create A Python Multiline String With Examples

Let’s now discuss each of these options in details. We have also provided examples with the description of every method.

Use Triple Quotes To Create A Multiline String

It is the simplest method to let a long string split into different lines. You will need to enclose it with a pair of Triple quotes, one at the start and second in the end.

"""Learn Python
Programming"""

Anything inside the enclosing Triple quotes will become part of one multiline string. Let’s have an example to illustrate this behavior.

# String containing newline characters
line_str = "I'm learning Python.\nI refer to TechBeamers.com tutorials.\nIt is the most popular site for Python programmers."

Now, we’ll try to slice it into multiple lines using triple quotes.


# String containing newline characters
line_str = "I'm learning Python.\nI refer to TechBeamers.com tutorials.\nIt is the most popular site for Python programmers."
print("Long string with newlines: \n" + line_str)

# Creating a multiline string
multiline_str = """I'm learning Python.
I refer to TechBeamers.com tutorials.
It is the most popular site for Python programmers."""
print("Multiline string: \n" + multiline_str)

After running the above, the output is:


Long string with newlines: 
I'm learning Python.
I refer to TechBeamers.com tutorials.
It is the most popular site for Python programmers.
Multiline string: 
I'm learning Python.
I refer to TechBeamers.com tutorials.
It is the most popular site for Python programmers.

This method retains the newline ‘\n’ in the generated string. If you want to remove the ‘\n’, then use the strip()/replace() function.

Use Brackets To Define A Multiline String

Another technique is to enclose the slices of a string over multiple lines using brackets. See the below example to know how to use it:


# Python multiline string example using brackets
multiline_str = ("I'm learning Python. "
"I refer to TechBeamers.com tutorials. "
"It is the most popular site for Python programmers.")
print(multiline_str)

It provides the following result:

I'm learning Python. I refer to TechBeamers.com tutorials. It is the most popular site for Python programmers.


You can see there is no newline character in the output. However, if you want it, then add it while creating the string.

# Python multiline string with newlines example using brackets
multiline_str = ("I'm learning Python.\n"
"I refer to TechBeamers.com tutorials.\n"
"It is the most popular site for Python programmers.")
print(multiline_str)

Here is the output after execution:

I'm learning Python.
I refer to TechBeamers.com tutorials.
It is the most popular site for Python programmers.

Please note that PEP 8 guide recommends using brackets to create Python multiline string.

Backslash To Join String On Multiple Lines

It is a less preferred way to use backslash for line continuation. However, it certainly works and can join strings on various lines.

# Python multiline string example using backslash
multiline_str = "I'm learning Python. " \
"I refer to TechBeamers.com tutorials. " \
"It is the most popular site for Python programmers."
print(multiline_str)

The above code gives the following result:


I'm learning Python. I refer to TechBeamers.com tutorials. It is the most popular site for Python programmers.


You can observe that the output isn’t showing any newlines. However, you may like to add some by yourself.

# Python multiline string example using backslash and newlines
multiline_str = "I'm learning Python.\n" \
"I refer to TechBeamers.com tutorials.\n" \
"It is the most popular site for Python programmers."
print(multiline_str)

The output:

I'm learning Python.
I refer to TechBeamers.com tutorials.
It is the most popular site for Python programmers.


Join() Method To Create A String With Newlines

The final approach is applying the string join() function to convert a string into multiline. It handles the space characters itself while contaminating the strings.

# Python multiline string example using string join()
multiline_str = ' '.join(("I'm learning Python.",
                          "I refer to TechBeamers.com tutorials.",
                          "It is the most popular site for Python programmers."))
print(multiline_str)

It outputs the following result:

I'm learning Python. I refer to TechBeamers.com tutorials. It is the most popular site for Python programmers.



# Python multiline string with newlines example using string join()
multiline_str = ''.join(("I'm learning Python.\n",
                          "I refer to TechBeamers.com tutorials.\n",
                          "It is the most popular site for Python programmers."))
print(multiline_str)

The result is:


I'm learning Python.
I refer to TechBeamers.com tutorials.
It is the most popular site for Python programmers.

We hope that after wrapping up this tutorial, you should feel comfortable in using Python multiline string. However, you may practice more with examples to gain confidence.

Thanks for reading !

Python for Beginners #2 — Importing files to python with pandas

Use pandas to upload CSV, TXT and Excel files

Story time before we begin

Learning Python isn’t the easiest thing to do. But consistency is really the key to arriving at a level that boosts your career.

We hear a lot about millennials wanting things to easy. In reality, there are a lot of young professionals who believe that they can do more for their companies but are being held back by the work cultures they are faced with at the onset of their careers.

Having been lucky enough to have found a job after my studies, I remember immediately feeling a wave of disappointment a very short while after starting my new job. I felt like a cog in a massive machine. I wasn’t really anything other than a ‘resource’. An extra 8–15 hours of daily man power depending on my boss’ whim.

The result, was the eventual disenchantment and lack of motivation simply because, for the most part, I was expected to be quiet and do my job in the hope of one day being senior enough to effect significant changes. And while the older generation would generally tell me to suck it up, I couldn’t see myself sucking it up for 5 years or more. I knew I’d get stale and afraid of change, much like those telling me to stay in my place.

For anyone in a similar situation,**_ do your best to improve on your skills _**and find an environment that works for you. That’s the whole purpose of these articles. To get you on your way to freedom.

Introduction

For this demonstration, I’ll use data from this Kaggle competition. It’s a simple CSV file containing data on individuals in the Titanic and the different profiles i.e. (age, marital status etc.)

I want to import this file to python. I’ll show you how to do this alongside all the possible troubleshoots you may encounter.

  3. Reading excel (XLSX) files
