Code block in PYTHON

if statements don't decide on skipping or running the entire code. They only make decisions about a code block.


if True:
  print("I'm a code block!")



We use an indentation of two spaces to highlight code blocks, like indenting this display statement.

Indentation refers to the space between the code and the code editor's margin.


if True:
  print("I'm two spaces away!")



A code block can be more than a one-liner. All lines with the same indentation belong to the same code block.

We can see it here when we use print() to add one more line at the beginning.


if True:
  print("Look at me!")
  print("I'm a code block")
