How to create multiline comment in Python ?


Python doesn't officially support multiline comments. But there are mainly 2 ways to make multiline comment in Python.

  • Use multiple single line comments. Like this
    # this is line 1 of comment
    # this is line 2 of comment
    # this is line 3 of comment
  • Use triple quoted strings. Like this
    '''
    
    This is 
    a multiline comment.
    
    This can go 
    to multiple lines.
    
    '''

When triple quoted strings are not a docstring they are ignored. docstring are the first thing in a class / function / module.

Just keep in mind to properly indent the triple quotes. triple quoted comments are however not encouraged by python. It's recommended to use multiple single line comments.
