Is there a way to declare a constant in Python? In Java we can create constant values in this manner:
public static final String CONST_NAME = "Name";
No there is not. You cannot declare a variable or value as constant in Python. Just don't change it.
If you are in a class, the equivalent would be:
class Foo(object): CONST_NAME = "Name"
if not, it is just
CONST_NAME = "Name"
But you might want to have a look at the code snippet Constants in Python by Alex Martelli.
