Python - check if string is empty

In this article, we would like to show you how to check if string is empty in Python.

Quick solution:

text = ""
print(bool(text))  # False
text = "abc"
print(bool(text))  # True

Note:

In Python empty strings are considered as false.

 

Practical example

In this example, we create a simple if statement to check if the string is empty or not.

Case 1: empty string

text = ""

if not text:
    print("true")
else:
    print("false")

Output:

true

Case 2: not empty string

text = "abc"

if not text:
    print("true")
else:
    print("false")

Output:

false

Note:

In this example, we don't need print() function because the expression itself returns true or false. It can be replaced with some action.
