Spliting a list into n uneven buckets with all combinations

I have a list like:

lst = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10]

and I want to get the combination of all splits for a given n bucket without changing the order of the list. Output exp for n=3:

[
 [1],[2],[3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10],
 [1],[2,3],[4,5,6,7,8,9,10],
 [1],[2,3,4],[5,6,7,8,9,10],
 .
 .
 .
 [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8],[9],[10],
]

Python is the language I use but if you can direct me to an algorithm that would nice as well. I see this problem is usually apllied on strings. But couldn’t figure it out on the list.

P.S. this is my first question. Any feedback is appreciated on how to improve the question.

Answer

Try:

from itertools import product


def generate(n, l):
    for c in product(range(1, l), repeat=n - 1):
        s = sum(c)
        if s > l - 1:
            continue
        yield *c, l - s


lst = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10]
n = 3

for groups in generate(n, len(lst)):
    l, out = lst, []
    for g in groups:
        out.append(l[:g])
        l = l[g:]
    print(out)

Prints:
