A list literal is a listing of expressions.

Lists are always ordered and can contain different types of objects, such as strings, integers, booleans, etc. Lists are a mutable data type and therefore a good choice for dynamic data (adding and subtracting to lists).


In Emojicode, a list is created by using 🍿 and πŸ†.

For instance, the example below is a list literal with integer values 18, 67, 420.

🍿 18 67 420 πŸ†

Here’s another list with three strings:

🍿 πŸ”€eggsπŸ”€ πŸ”€blueberriesπŸ”€ πŸ”€cookiesπŸ”€ πŸ†

The compiler will try to infer the type of a list literal. The default type of list literals, is the list type 🍨, an ordered mutable collections of values.
