Python list of dictionaries search

Here is a code snippet that demonstrates how to search for a specific value in a list of dictionaries in Python:

# list of dictionaries
data = [{'id': 1, 'name': 'Alice'}, {'id': 2, 'name': 'Bob'}, {'id': 3, 'name': 'Charlie'}]

# search value
search_value = 'Bob'

# search function
def search_list_of_dicts(data, search_value):
    result = []
    for item in data:
        if search_value in item.values():
    return result

# call the function and print the result
result = search_list_of_dicts(data, search_value)

Watch a course Python - The Practical Guide

This code will return the dictionary containing 'Bob'

[{'id': 2, 'name': 'Bob'}]

You can use different searching method for searching the data in list of dictionaries like using filter function with lambda function, list comprehension, or generator expression.
