Replacements for switch statement in Python

0 votes

I want to create a Python function that, depending on the value of an input index, outputs several fixed values.

While Python doesn't seem to have a switch statement, I would often use a case or switch statement in other languages. What are the suggested Python answers to this problem?

To get the same function as a switch statement, you can also use the if-elif-else statement.

for ex:

def my_function(index):
    if index == 0:
        return "value for index 0"
    elif index == 1:
        return "value for index 1"
    elif index == 2:
        return "value for index 2"
    else:
        return "default value"
