I’m exploring how viable Python is for my scripting needs. I want to have a concise and readable language, with synchronous by default execution, write once run everywhere type of thing. Another requirement is to have easy to use command line interoperability: piping data in and out, CLI arguments, spawning processes etc.
Python seems like a good fit for all of these requirements. I initially was opposed to this idea because, well, I never worked with it. But after writing scripts with NodeJS for a while, I’m pretty motivated to learn anything.
