I have a list of objects and I want to shuffle them. I thought I could use the
random.shuffle method, but this seems to fail when the list is of objects. Is there a method for shuffling objects or another way around this?
import random class A: foo = "bar" a1 = a() a2 = a() b = [a1, a2] print(random.shuffle(b))
This will fail.
random.shuffle should work. Here’s an example, where the objects are lists:
from random import shuffle x = [[i] for i in range(10)] shuffle(x) # print(x) gives [, , , , , , , , , ] # of course your results will vary
Note that shuffle works in place, and returns None.
