Python - remove first character from string if condition

0 points
Created by:

In this article, we would like to show you how to conditionally remove the first character from the string in Python.

Quick solution:

text = "ABC"

if text[0] == "A":
    text = text[1:]

print("after: ", text)  # after: BC


Practical example

In this example, we check if the first character in a string is C and remove it if true.

text = "ABC"

print("String before:", text)

# remove first character from a string if condition
if text[0] == "A":
    text = text[1:]

print("String after: ", text)


String before: ABC
String after:  BC
