Python : Dictionary comprehension

Before updating a no sql or mongo doc you need to ensure that you are not adding keys which are not part of initial doc then dictionary comprehension is really helpful.

What it means, is you are able to create a dict (json object) dynamically in single line of code using loops, condition, construction every thing together.

Single line comprehension

items_to_update = {key: value for key, value in payload.items() if key in req_items}

 

multi line interpretation

if key in req_items:

….for key, value in payload.items():

…….. dictionary[key]=value

Detailed example of created update doc dic before inserting in mongo db

try:
    req_items = ["property1","property2"]
    items_to_update = {key: value for key, value in payload.items() if key in req_items}
  
    if items_to_update:
        logger.info("Updating device collection with {}".format(items_to_update))
        self.db.update({"filter": filter}, {"$set": items_to_update}, multi=True)
        logger.info("Successfully updated product details")
except PyMongoError as e:
    logger.critical('Pymongo Exception {}'.format(str(e)))
except Exception as e:
    logger.critical('Exception {}'.format(str(e)))
