Is there any pythonic way to write the following code:

extensions = ['.mp3','.avi']

file_name = 'test.mp3'

for extension in extensions:

    if file_name.endswith(extension):

        #do stuff

I have an ambiguous memory that the express declaration of the for loop can be kept away from and be written in the if condition. Is this valid?

In spite of the fact that not broadly known, str.endswith additionally acknowledges a tuple. You don't have to loop.

>>> 'test.mp3'.endswith(('.mp3', '.avi'))
