I'm used to doing print >>f, "hi there"

However, it seems that print >> is getting deprecated. What is the recommended way to do the line above?

To write a line to a file you should use the print() function which is available since the release of  Python 2.6+:-

from __future__ import print_function # Only needed for Python 2 

print("hi there", file=f)

In Python 3 we have print() function as default so we don't need the import it:-

f = open('myfile', 'w')

f.write('hi there\n') # python will convert \n to os.linesep f.close() # you can omit in most cases as the destructor will call it

To know more about this you can have a look at the following video tutorial:-
