Advent of Code 2021 Python Solution: Day 16

I was too busy to solve this challenge (but I tried for around 30min) and I did not even want to skip a day so, I had to look over other people's code.
The following code is taken from here. All credit goes to the author of this repository.

Part 1

data,data1=get_data(day=16)

data = '''38006F45291200'''.splitlines()
data=data1[0].splitlines()

s = bin(int(data[0], 16))[2:]
n = len(s)
if n % 4 != 0:
    s = '0' * (4 - n % 4) + s
n = len(s)
res = 0
c = 0

while c < n and '1' in s[c:]:
    v = int(s[c: c + 3], 2)
    res += v
    c += 3
    t = int(s[c: c + 3], 2)
    c += 3

    if t == 4:
        num = ''
        while s[c] == '1':
            num += s[c + 1: c + 5]
            c += 5
        num += s[c + 1: c + 5]
        c += 5
        num = int(num, 2)
    else:
        l = int(s[c], 2)
        c += 1
        if l == 0:
            num = int(s[c: c + 15], 2)
            c += 15
        else:
            num = int(s[c: c + 11], 2)
            c += 11

print(res)

funcDict = {
    0: sum,
    1: lambda a: reduce(lambda x, y: x * y, a),
    2: min,
    3: max,
    5: lambda a: int(a[0] > a[1]),
    6: lambda a: int(a[0] < a[1]),
    7: lambda a: int(a[0] == a[1])

def evaluate(u):
    if packets[u][1] == 4:
        return packets[u][2]

    res = []
    for v in graph[u]:
        res.append(evaluate(v))
    return funcDict[packets[u][1]](res)

s = bin(int(data[0], 16))[2:]
for i in data[0]:
    if i != '0':
        break
    s = '0' * 4 + s
n = len(s)
if n % 4 != 0:
    s = '0' * (4 - n % 4) + s
n = len(s)
c = 0
packets = []

while c < n and '1' in s[c:]:
    v = int(s[c: c + 3], 2)
    c += 3
    t = int(s[c: c + 3], 2)
    c += 3

    if t == 4:
        num = ''
        while s[c] == '1':
            num += s[c + 1: c + 5]

            num = int(s[c: c + 15], 2)
            c += 15
        else:
            num = int(s[c: c + 11], 2)
            c += 11

        packets.append([v, t, l, num, c])

stack = []
graph = [[] for _ in range(len(packets))]

for i, u in enumerate(packets):
    if len(stack) > 0:
        p = stack[-1]
        graph[p].append(i)
        packets[p][3] -= 1
        if packets[p][3] == 0:
            stack.pop()
