Get fancy with Python. There are a lot of shortcuts out there, I bet you didn't know!


Indentation



Use Tab for indenting


and 


Use Shift+Tab to unindent 



Commenting



To comment out a bunch of code, or uncomment a bunch of code, use Ctrl+/ for Windows and Command+/ for MacOS.



 To enclose some text inside quotes, select the text and then, press Shift+' or Shift+".



 List comprehensions


The best part about Python is that you can do so much in so less of code. If you want to create a list of numbers in a certain range, you can do it extremely easily with this one line of code.

You can add conditions to it easily too.

Look at the below example. You can either do it like this with 6 lines of code,

or, do it all together, using only 2 lines.

Lambda Functions


Using lambdas, you can define a function right inside a variable! The syntax is like this:


multiply = lambda x, y: x*y

multiply(2,3)

# Multiplies 2 and 3


Output:


6
