Very Long If Statement in Python
According to PEP8, long lines should be placed in parentheses. When using parentheses, the lines can be broken up without using backslashes. You should also try to put the line break after boolean operators.
Further to this, if youre using a code style check such as pycodestyle, the next logical line needs to have different indentation to your code block.
if (abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz > some_other_long_identifier and here_is_another_long_identifier != and_finally_another_long_name): # ... your code here ... pass
Here is the example directly from PEP 8 on limiting line length:
class Rectangle(Blob): def __init__(self, width, height, color=black, emphasis=None, highlight=0): if (width == 0 and height == 0 and color == red and emphasis == strong or highlight > 100): raise ValueError(sorry, you lose) if width == 0 and height == 0 and (color == red or emphasis is None): raise ValueError(I dont think so -- values are %s, %s % (width, height)) Blob.__init__(self, width, height, color, emphasis, highlight)
