Python Python

type: "io.kestra.core.tasks.scripts.Python"

Execute a Python script

With this Python task, we can execute a full python script.
The task will create a fresh virtualenv for every tasks and allow you to install some python package define in requirements property.

By convention, you need to define at least a main.py files in inputFiles that will be the script used.
But you are also able to add as many script as you need in inputFiles.

You can also add a pip.conf in inputFiles to customize the pip download of dependencies (like a private registry).

You can send outputs & metrics from your python script that can be used by others tasks. In order to help, we inject a python package directly on the working dir.Here is an example usage:

from kestra import Kestra
Kestra.outputs({'test': 'value', 'int': 2, 'bool': True, 'float': 3.65})
Kestra.counter('count', 1, {'tag1': 'i', 'tag2': 'win'})
Kestra.timer('timer1', lambda: time.sleep(1), {'tag1': 'i', 'tag2': 'lost'})
Kestra.timer('timer2', 2.12, {'tag1': 'i', 'tag2': 'destroy'})

# Examples

Execute a python script

id: "python"
type: "io.kestra.core.tasks.scripts.Python"
inputFiles:
  data.json: |
          {"status": "OK"}
  main.py: |
    from kestra import Kestra
    import json
    import requests
    import sys
    result = json.loads(open(sys.argv[1]).read())
    print(f"python script {result['status']}")
    response = requests.get('http://google.com')
    print(response.status_code)
    Kestra.outputs({'status': response.status_code, 'text': response.text})
  pip.conf: |
    # some specific pip repository configuration
args:
  - data.json
