Inline Python Scripting possible?

Is it possible with inline scripts to be able to use python? I know it does bash scripting just fine, didn't know if there was a plugin that could do inline python or not.

Just use:

/usr/bin/python <<EOF
print "Hello, World!"

as the inline script body.

Once again... you are amazing. Thanks again

when I tried it, I get this error

<< was unexpected at this time.

@Przemek Bruski  thank you for your reply

I am still getting error when attempting an python script "inline".  I know your response is straight forward but can you elaborate more on how to achieve a python script inline?

If you want to execute a longer script and use the "Command" task with a Python executable in order to have the Python capability automatically added you can do the following:

  1. Add a script task with code like this:
    cat <<EOF >

    print "Hello, World!"

  2. Add a command task with executable "python" and argument ""

Then again, anything non trivial should probably go into a file anyway.

Definitely. You can backup your database. But any build scripts should always be part of your source repository, whenever possible. You don't want to do a lot of 'hidden magic' that exists only in Bamboo Tasks (or any other CI tool for that matter)

python -c "print 'Hello, World!'"

Maybe not the best solution for a large amount of python code. Then again, anything non trivial should probably go into a file anyway.
