Writing and reading files in Python
The title of this section may sound strange as you are probably used to seeing it written as reading and writing, but in this section, you will write data to files first, then read it. By writing it, you will understand the structure of the data and you will know what it is you are trying to read.
To write data, you will use a library named
faker allows you to easily create fake data for common fields. You can generate an address by simply calling
address(), or a female name using
name_female(). This will simplify the creation of fake data while at the same time making it more realistic.
faker, you can use
pip3 install faker
faker now installed, you are ready to start writing files. The next section will start with CSV files.
