I know that I can run a python script from my bash script using the following:
But what about if I wanted to pass a variable / argument to my python script from my bash script. How can I do that?
Basically bash will work out a filename and then python will upload it, but I need to send the filename from bash to python when I call it.
Now we will see solution for issue: Call Python script from bash with argument
To execute a python script in a bash script you need to call the same command that you would within a terminal. For instance
> python python_script.py var1 var2
To access these variables within python you will need
import sys print(sys.argv) # prints python_script.py print(sys.argv) # prints var1 print(sys.argv) # prints var2
