syntactic sugar

"In computer science, syntactic sugar is syntax within a programming language that is designed to make things easier to read or to express. It makes the language "sweeter" for human use: things can be expressed more clearly, more concisely, or in an alternative style that some may prefer." -- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syntactic_sugar

Unravelling generator expressions

In this post on Python's syntactic sugar [https://snarky.ca/tag/syntactic-sugar/], I want to try to tackle generator expressions [https://docs.python.org/3.8/reference/expressions.html#generator-expressions]. If you look

Unravelling the `async with` statement

I already covered unravelling the with statement [https://snarky.ca/unravelling-the-with-statement/], and async with is not much different. Much like with, the language reference for async with [https://docs.python.org/3.8/

Unravelling `async for` loops

When I decided the next post in my series on Python's syntactic sugar [https://snarky.ca/tag/syntactic-sugar/] would be on async for, I figured it would be straightforward. I have already done

Unravelling `async` and `await`

For this post in my Python syntactic sugar [https://snarky.ca/tag/syntactic-sugar/] series, I am going to cover async and await. Now when I started to think about this post I was

Unravelling the `with` statement

As part of my series on Python's syntactic sugar [https://snarky.ca/tag/syntactic-sugar/], I want to tackle unravelling the with statement [https://docs.python.org/3.8/reference/compound_stmts.html#the-with-statement]
