I'd like to provide a counter-example here: Ruby allows this construct, enabling me to write

x = Post.first ? do_foo(x) : do_bar # does the assignment, then evaluates the result

A nice shorthand in my opinion, so the python way isn't a cure-all :)




I think you mean this

(x = Post.first) ? do_foo(x) : do_bar
