How to Run a Python Script from a Conda Environment

In a previous post, we explained how to run a python script within a shell script from a conda environment. Now, we will explain how to run a python script by specifying the conda environment. First of all, you need to find the path of your conda environment which can be retrieved by running the command:

conda env list

Assume that our conda environment is the ‘gpipis‘ and the path is the “/home/ds/.conda/envs/gpipis“. What you need to do is to add the shebang line to your script by adding the bin/python to your conda environment. For example, let’s assume that our test.py is the following:

#!/home/ds/.conda/envs/billy/bin/python

f = open("demo_file.txt", "a")
f.write("I added a new line!\n")
f.close()

Maybe you will need to make the file executable by changing the permissions. for example

chmod 744 test.py

And then we can run the script as:

./test.py

This script will run under the gpipis environment. Once we run the file, a new line will be added to the “demo_file.txt”. For example:

cat demo_file.txt
I added a new line!

If we run the script again, a new line will be added. For example:

./test.py

cat demo_file.txt
I added a new line!
I added a new line!
