Fix Python – Split string on whitespace in Python [duplicate]

Question

Asked By – siamii

I’m looking for the Python equivalent of

String str = "many   fancy word \nhello    \thi";
String whiteSpaceRegex = "\\s";
String[] words = str.split(whiteSpaceRegex);

["many", "fancy", "word", "hello", "hi"]

Now we will see solution for issue: Split string on whitespace in Python [duplicate]


Answer

The str.split() method without an argument splits on whitespace:

>>> "many   fancy word \nhello    \thi".split()
['many', 'fancy', 'word', 'hello', 'hi']
