Python program to Convert Matrix to List of dictionaries
  • Last Updated : 01 Oct, 2020

Given a Matrix, convert it to a list of dictionaries by mapping similar index values.

Input : test_list = [[“Gfg”, [1, 2, 3]], [“best”, [9, 10, 11]]] 
Output : [{‘Gfg’: 1, ‘best’: 9}, {‘Gfg’: 2, ‘best’: 10}, {‘Gfg’: 3, ‘best’: 11}] 

Input : test_list = [[“Gfg”, [1, 2, 3]]] 
Output : [{‘Gfg’: 1}, {‘Gfg’: 2}, {‘Gfg’: 3}] 

The brute way in which this task can be performed is using a loop. In this, we iterate for all the elements in Matrix, and update dictionaries binding keys to appropriate values in dictionary.

Python3




# initializing list
test_list = [["Gfg", [1, 2, 3]],
             ["is", [6, 5, 4]], ["best", [9, 10, 11]]]
  
# printing original list
print("The original list : " + str(test_list))
  
# using loop to bind Matrix elements to dictionary
res = []
for key, val in test_list:
  
    for idx, val in enumerate(val):
  
        # append values according to rows structure
        if len(res) - 1 < idx:
            res.append({key: val})
  
        else:
            res[idx].update({key: val})
  
# printing result
print("Converted dictionary : " + str(res))

Output:



The original list : [[‘Gfg’, [1, 2, 3]], [‘is’, [6, 5, 4]], [‘best’, [9, 10, 11]]]
Converted dictionary : [{‘Gfg’: 1, ‘is’: 6, ‘best’: 9}, {‘Gfg’: 2, ‘is’: 5, ‘best’: 10}, {‘Gfg’: 3, ‘is’: 4, ‘best’: 11}]
