    If you code in Python, your probably should use the language as much as possible and avoid calling shell commands.


    - manipulate the file system with pathlib

    - do hashes with hashlib

    - zip with zipfile

    - set error code with sys.exit

    - use os.environ for env vars

    - print to stderr with print(..., file=...)

    - sometimes you'll need to install lib. Like, if you want to manipulate a git repo, instead of calling the git command, use gitpython (

    But if you don't feel like installing a too many libs, or just really want to call commands because you know them well, then the "sh" lib is going to make things smoother:

    Also, enjoy the fact Python comes with argparse to parse script arguments (or if you feel like installing stuff, use typer). It sucks to do it in bash .

    If what you need is more build oriented, like something to replace "make", then I would instead recommend "doit":

    It's the only task runner that I haven't run away from yet.

    Remember to always to everything in a venv. But you can have a giant venv for all the scripts, and just she-bang the venv python executable so that it's transparent. Things don't have to be difficult.

  • Spiff

    A powerful workflow engine implemented in pure Python

    Project mention: Looking for beginner/intermediate level open source projects to contribute to | | 2022-10-17

    u/kaerfkeerg's recommendation is the best general advice -- but you might take a look at SpiffWorkflow, an open source library that allows novice programmers and BA's to contribute directly to major software projects. It's smaller, lesser known project, but fully open source with lots of oppertunity to make important contributions.
