How can I go from this structure

>>> input = ['a', 'b', 'c'] 

to this one

>>> output  ['a', 'a/b', 'a/b/c'] 

in an elegant (functional) way?

For now I have this:

>>> from functools import reduce >>> res = [] >>> for i in range(len(input)): ...     res.append(reduce(lambda a, b: a + '/' + b, input[:i+1])) ...  >>> res ['a', 'a/b', 'a/b/c'] 

 


You can use itertools.accumulate():

from itertools import accumulate i = ['a', 'b', 'c'] print(list(accumulate(i, '{}/{}'.format))) 

This outputs:

['a', 'a/b', 'a/b/c']
