The standard code for filtering through pandas would be something like:
output = df['Column'].str.contains('string') strings = ['string 1', 'string 2', 'string 3']
Instead of ‘string’ though, I want to filter such that it goes through a collection of strings in list, “strings”. So I tried something such as
output = df['Column'].str.contains('*strings')
This is the closest solution I could find, but did not work
How to filter pandas DataFrame with a list of strings
Edit: I should note that I’m aware of the | or operator. However, I’m wondering how to tackle all cases in the instance list strings is changing and I’m looping through varying lists of changing lengths as the end goal.
