I am trying to create a python script
script.py in bash and importing a bash script.
#!/usr/bin/env python import os import glob from fnmatch import fnmatch # importing a software python_package = os.system("""#!/path_to_bin/bin/python \ from __future__ import print_function, division \ from python_toolbox.toolbox.some_toolbox import run \ if __name__ == '__main__': \ run()""" # testing greeting = "Hello world!" print(greeting)
script.py in python3
$python3 script.py File "script.py", line 15 greeting = "Hello world!" SyntaxError: invalid syntax
Nominally the problem is that you are missing the closing paren on the os.system call. But there is a better way to run a python program than trying to write it all on the command line. Instead, you can pass a full script, including newlines, to python’s stdin.
#!/usr/bin/env python import sys import subprocess as subp # importing a software subp.run([sys.executable, "-"], input=b""" print("I am a called python script") """) # testing greeting = "Hello world!" print(greeting)
