Convert list(s) to dictionary [closed]

#Lists generated from User input.

user1_name = ['Adam']
user1_passion = ['Coding','Wood Chopping','Sleeping']
user2_name = ['Eve']
user2_passion = ['Coding','Eating Apples','Sleeping']

How do I convert the above to a nested dictionary like this?

user_info = {
    'user1': {
        'fname': 'adam',
        'passion': ['coding', 'wood chopping', 'sleeping']
    },
    'user2': {
        'fname': 'eve',
        'passion': ['coding', 'eating apples', 'sleeping']
    },

}

Answer

It’s possible to wrangle these lists into a dict by doing something like:

>>> user_info = {
...     f"user{i}": {
...         'fname': name[0].lower(),
...         'passion': [p.lower() for p in passion]
...     }  for i, (name, passion) in enumerate(
...        [(user1_name, user1_passion), (user2_name, user2_passion)],
...        1
...     )
... }
>>>
>>> user_info
{'user1': {'fname': 'adam', 'passion': ['coding', 'wood chopping', 'sleeping']}, 'user2': {'fname': 'eve', 'passion': ['coding', 'eating apples', 'sleeping']}}

It would be much simpler if these pieces of input weren’t in different statically-named variables in the first place though; the easy solution is to just insert them into a dictionary (or list) as you gather the input.

For example:

>>> num_users = 2
>>> user_info = {
...     f"user{i}": {
...         'fname': input("User name: ").lower(),
...         'passion': input("What are your passions?  (Comma-separated list.) ").lower().split(",")
...     } for i in range(1, num_users+1)
... }
User name: Adam
What are your passions?  (Comma-separated list.) Coding,Wood Chopping,Sleeping
User name: Eve
What are your passions?  (Comma-separated list.) Coding,Eating Apples,Sleeping
>>> user_info
{'user1': {'fname': 'adam', 'passion': ['coding', 'wood chopping', 'sleeping']}, 'user2': {'fname': 'eve', 'passion': ['coding', 'eating apples', 'sleeping']}}
