Python Truth Value Testing

Evaluate an object value as truthy or falsy with Python truth value testing.

Truth Value Testing

Python treats object values as either truthy or falsy, a similar construct found in JavaScript. Any object can be tested as truthy or falsy using truth value testing.

For example, the conditional logic in an if or while loop can be satisfied as truthy -> True or falsy -> False. An object value is considered truthy if its boolean conversion is True or falsy if its boolean conversion is False. The built-in bool converts an object value to either True or False. The bool conversion can be used to demonstrate truth value testing for various objects or whether a value is truthy or falsy.
