How to define constant in Python
In this article you will learn how to define a constant in Python, also what constants are for in Python and how we should use them
Hey you programmer, ok? Let’s learn more about constants in the Python language!
In fact, it is still not possible to create a constant in Python as in other languages, where its value is not changed.
At least not in the year I am writing this article.
However, in the documentation, if you choose to create a variable with constant syntax, there are some instructions to follow
All letters of the variable that will serve as constant must be uppercase.
And also if there is more than one word they must be separated by an underscore
Let’s see two examples:
CONSTANT = 1 CONSTANTE_TWO = 2
This is the recommended pattern in the Python language documentation
You can leave an inline comment explaining that the variable is actually a constant
Note: Maybe in the future they will add the constant statement in Python, so I will update this article as the documentation provides this information
In this article we learned how to define a constant in Python – which actually doesn’t have its own syntax
And yes to delimit the variable with a syntax that resembles the constants of other languages, as indicated in the documentation
