Fix Python – Inverse dictionary lookup in Python


Asked By – RadiantHex

Is there any straightforward way of finding a key by knowing the value within a dictionary?

All I can think of is this:

key = [key for key, value in dict_obj.items() if value == 'value'][0]

There is none. Don’t forget that the value may be found on any number of keys, including 0 or more than 1.
