In Python, you may loop through a dictionary's key-value pairs using the "items()" function, and then use the "in" operator to see if the key is present in the other dictionary. You may compare the values if it's there. You can include it in a list of differences if it is absent. 

  • items(): The items() method in Python is used to retrieve a view object that contains a list of dictionaries (key, value) tuple pairs. The view object can be iterated over to access the key-value pairs of the dictionary. This is useful when you want to loop through the key-value pairs of a dictionary and perform some operation on each of them. It is also useful when you want to create a copy of a dictionary and keep it updated with the original dictionary. 
  • in operator: The in operator in Python is used to check whether a value is present in a container data type such as a list, tuple, set, or dictionary. It returns True if the value is found in the container and False otherwise. It is a very useful operator when you want to check if a value is present in a container data type. It saves time and lines of code. 

For more information about comparing two dictionaries with more values in one in Python, refer to the code below.

I hope you found this useful.

I found this code snippet by searching for 'Compare two dictionary with more value in one' in kandi. You can try any such use case!

Environment Tested

I tested this solution in the following versions. Be mindful of changes when working with other versions.

  1. The solution is created in PyCharm 2021.3.
  2. The solution is tested on Python 3.9.7.
  3. Pandas version-v1.5.2.

Using this solution, we are able to compare two dictionaries with more values in one in python with simple steps. This process also facilities an easy way to use, hassle-free method to create a hands-on working version of code which would help us to compare two dictionaries with more values in one in python.
