Beginner python programmer here. I understand what an "IndexError: list index out of range" error means, but in my case I’m not sure why I’m getting it. I have a script which goes to this webpage (https://www.basketball-reference.com/players/v/valanjo01/gamelog/2022) and in the "2021-22 Regular Season" table, goes through all of the rows and prints out the values in the "Rk" column.
This is my code:
team_game_number_element =  team_game_number =  for x in range(82): y = str(x + 1) team_game_number_element[x].append(driver.find_element_by_xpath('//th[@data-stat="ranker" and contains(., "' + y + '")]')) team_game_number[x].append(team_game_number_element[x].text) print(team_game_number[x])
What I was expecting:
x starts at 0, y becomes "1". Then team_game_number_element is assigned to the element with that xpath (specifically the one which contains the value of y). Then team_game_number is assigned the value of the text of team_game_number_element.
The append() method appends/add an element to the end of the list.
In your code you can remove the index before the append method.
team_game_number_element =  team_game_number =  for index in range(82): y = str(index + 1) team_game_number_element.append('some text') team_game_number.append(team_game_number_element[index]) print(index, team_game_number[index], y)
