How do I add items to a Python list?

To add an item to a list in Python, you can use the list.append(), list.insert() or list.extend() methods. The list.append() method appends an element to the end of the list. The list.insert() method inserts an element at the specified index (position). Indexing starts at zero, and a negative index -1 means that the item will be added from the end of the list. If you want to concatenate multiple lists, use the "+" operator. You can add elements of different types to the list (numbers, strings, etc.). In this Python Add to List Example, we use the list.append() method to add an item to the end of the list. Additional examples of adding items to the list are provided below with detailed descriptions. Click Execute to run the Python Add to List Example online and see the result.
