enumerate() for dictionary in python

The Solution to enumerate() for dictionary in python is


On top of the already provided answers there is a very nice pattern in Python that allows you to enumerate both keys and values of a dictionary.

The normal case you enumerate the keys of the dictionary:

example_dict = {1:'a', 2:'b', 3:'c', 4:'d'}

for i, k in enumerate(example_dict):
    print(i, k)

Which outputs:

0 1
1 2
2 3
3 4

But if you want to enumerate through both keys and values this is the way:

for i, (k, v) in enumerate(example_dict.items()):
    print(i, k, v)

Which outputs:

0 1 a
1 2 b
2 3 c
3 4 d
