Python : Executing Code in Another Python Virtual Environment, so that you can exclude libraries

python @

Connecting to another Python virtual environment and executing code in it without using import statements in your script involves a few steps. Here’s a general approach:

  1. Locate the Python Executable of the Target Virtual Environment: You need to find the path to the Python executable of the virtual environment you want to run the code in. Usually, this can be found in the bin (or Scripts on Windows) directory inside the virtual environment folder.
  2. Use subprocess Module: Python’s subprocess module allows you to spawn new processes, connect to their input/output/error pipes, and obtain their return codes. You can use this module to run the Python executable of the target virtual environment.
  3. Pass the Code or Script to the Executable: You can either pass the Python code directly as a string or specify the path of the Python script you want to run in the target virtual environment.

Here’s an example of how this can be done:

import subprocess
# Learning @ Path to the Python executable in the target virtual environment
python_executable = '/freshers/in/virtualenv/bin/python' # Change this to your virtual environment's Python executable
# Python code to execute
code_to_run = 'print("Hello from another virtual environment!")'
# Running the code in the target virtual environment
result =[python_executable, '-c', code_to_run], capture_output=True, text=True)
# Output the result

The function is used to execute the Python code. The -c flag allows running Python code passed in as a string.

capture_output=True captures the output of the executed code, and text=True makes sure that the output is returned as a string.
