    ReQL command: list

    Command syntax

    list(cursor)

    Description

    Retrieve all results as a list.

    RethinkDB sequences can be iterated through via the Python Iterable interface; to coerce a cursor into a list, use the Python list() class constructor.

    Example: For small result sets it may be more convenient to process them at once as an array.

    cursor = r.table('users').run()
    users = list(cursor)
    process_results(users)
    

    The equivalent query with a for loop would be:

    cursor = r.table('users').run()
    for doc in cursor:
        process_results(doc)
    

    Note: Because a feed is a cursor that never terminates, using list with a feed will never return. Use for or next instead. See the changes command for more information on feeds.
