pandas.api.types.is_list_like

pandas.api.types.is_list_like(obj, allow_sets=True)[source]

Objects that are considered list-like are for example Python lists, tuples, sets, NumPy arrays, and Pandas Series.

Strings and datetime objects, however, are not considered list-like.

Parameters:
obj : The object to check

allow_sets : boolean, default True

If this parameter is False, sets will not be considered list-like

New in version 0.24.0.

Returns:

is_list_like : bool

Whether obj has list-like properties.

Examples
