import random shuffle() You can use random.shuffle() to mix up/randomize the items in a mutable and indexable sequence. For example a list: laughs = ["Hi", "Ho", "He"] random.shuffle(laughs) # Shuffles in-place! Don't do: laughs = random.shuffle(laughs) p...
import random randint() Returns a random integer between x and y (inclusive): random.randint(x, y) For example getting a random number between 1 and 8: random.randint(1, 8) # Out: 8 randrange() random.randrange has the same syntax as range and unlike random.randint, the last value is no...
Setting a specific Seed will create a fixed random-number series: random.seed(5) # Create a fixed state print(random.randrange(0, 10)) # Get a random integer between 0 and 9 # Out: 9 print(random.randrange(0, 10)) # Out: 4 Resetting the seed will create the same &qu...
By default the Python random module use the Mersenne Twister PRNG to generate random numbers, which, although suitable in domains like simulations, fails to meet security requirements in more demanding environments. In order to create a cryptographically secure pseudorandom number, one can use Syst...
In order to create a random user password we can use the symbols provided in the string module. Specifically punctuation for punctuation symbols, ascii_letters for letters and digits for digits: from string import punctuation, ascii_letters, digits We can then combine all these symbols in a name...
