In Python, a list is a dynamic array. You can create one like this:

lst = [] # Declares an empty list named lst

Or you can fill it with items:

lst = [1,2,3]

You can add items using "append":

lst.append('a')

You can iterate over elements of the list using the for loop:

for item in lst:
    # Do something with item

Or, if you'd like to keep track of the current index:

for idx, item in enumerate(lst):
    # idx is the current idx, while item is lst[idx]

To remove elements, you can use the del command or the remove function as in:

del lst[0] # Deletes the first item
lst.remove(x) # Removes the first occurence of x in the list

Note, though, that one cannot iterate over the list and modify it at the same time; to do that, you should instead iterate over a slice of the list (which is basically a copy of the list). As in:

 for item in lst[:]: # Notice the [:] which makes a slice
       # Now we can modify lst, since we are iterating over a copy of it
