How to break a list into multiple lists (with maximum size) in Python

If you have a large list and want to create smaller lists of it, with a maximum amount of elements, then:

commands = [str(i) for i in range(100)] print(len(commands)) #100 chunks = [commands[x:x+5] for x in range(0, len(commands), 5)] print(len(chunks)) #20 print(chunks)

This will look like:

[ ['0', '1', '2', '3', '4'], ['5', '6', '7', '8', '9'], ['10', '11', '12', '13', '14'], ['15', '16', '17', '18', '19'], ['20', '21', '22', '23', '24'], ['25', '26', '27', '28', '29'], ['30', '31', '32', '33', '34'], ['35', '36', '37', '38', '39'], ['40', '41', '42', '43', '44'], ['45', '46', '47', '48', '49'], ['50', '51', '52', '53', '54'], ['55', '56', '57', '58', '59'], ['60', '61', '62', '63', '64'], ['65', '66', '67', '68', '69'], ['70', '71', '72', '73', '74'], ['75', '76', '77', '78', '79'], ['80', '81', '82', '83', '84'], ['85', '86', '87', '88', '89'], ['90', '91', '92', '93', '94'], ['95', '96', '97', '98', '99'] ]
