I have a couple Windows computers on my network that will be running a python script. A different set of configuration options should be used in the script depending on which computer is running this script.
How would I get that computer name in the python script?
Let’s say the script was running on a computer named DARK-TOWER, I’d like to write something like this:
>>> python.library.get_computer_name() 'DARK-TOWER'
Is there a standard or third party library I can use?
Now we will see solution for issue: Getting name of windows computer running python script?
It turns out there are three options (including the two already answered earlier):
>>> import platform >>> import socket >>> import os >>> platform.node() 'DARK-TOWER' >>> socket.gethostname() 'DARK-TOWER' >>> os.environ['COMPUTERNAME'] 'DARK-TOWER'
