Python - write text to file

In this article, we would like to show you how to write text to file in Python.

Quick solution:

file = open("example.txt", "a")
file.write(" some text to append at the end.")
file.close()

 

Practical examples

1. Append at the end of the file

In this example, we add some text at the end of the text file using open() function with append parameter ("a").

file = open("example.txt", "a")
file.write(" some text to append at the end.")
file.close()

or if the file isn't directly in our project folder:

file = open("C:\\some_path\\example.txt", "a")
file.write(" some text to append at the end.")
file.close()

2. Overwrite file content

In this example, we overwrite the text file using open() function with write parameter ("w").

file = open("example.txt", "w")
file.write("New example.txt content.")
file.close()

or if the file isn't directly in our project folder:

file = open("C:\\some_path\\example.txt", "w")
file.write("New example.txt content.")
file.close()
