#2

You can call the Orchestrator API and if you dare the Robot API (no support) from any language.
What do you mean by calling Python?


#3

Would be good if we can use UiPath tools through an api like python. Is there such a thing?


#4

What tools?

Like badita said, Orchestrator and the Robot have APIs you can use from any language you wish, including python.


#5

Can you share a link on these APIs? I havent seen them. Do they have API’s for python language?


#6

Orchestrator API


#7

Thanks for the link Cosin,
However I dont see any python api. Would there be any examples of scripts that are using UiPath API’s


#8

Not sure how to help you. We keep saying that APIs are not language specific, it’s the same API for python, C#, javascript or haskel. Just use it in python like any API


#9

A python SDK would be the best. No more VB or graphical programming.


#10

Why do you need a python SDK?
UiPath’s graphical programming make it easier to do automation.


#11

Graphical programming is cluttered and hard to debug. For my application I need to process a lot of data, with many potential exceptions. It would be much easier to script a solution; throwing exceptions, nesting, recursion, functions, state machines, etc. Ask any programmer if they would rather do graphical or text-based programming.


#12

Why can’t you invoke via Powershell or custom activities?

Here are some examples that are calling AutoHotkey or Powershell: https://forum.uipath.com/c/activities. My guess is that you could follow the same approach with Python.


#13

Maybe I could use Powershell or custom activities. I haven’t seen any videos or documentation. Is it possible to script something in PS, then make a method call to a GUI recording, while passing variables between PS and the recording?


#14

This could help:

And a wrapper activity with path, args and out result.


#15

I think you can run python code by Powershell…


#16

i m not able to go to that link…pls will u share it again?


#17

Reconsidering. We entered first time in an Orchestrator API discussion.


How to run Python code
How to use the Python Activity in the studio beta
#18

I am not sure how this is planned to be handled .I had an idea while I was trying to execute some Python code … instead of executing it as a external command , I was able to get IronPython Libraries into .Net. Thorough which I was able to invoke python code pretty efficiently.

From what I have seen , it seems possible to build out a custom activity which would accept a python code - Just like invoke code does at the moment - and its dll , would contain IronPython libs which would help get the python code executed


#19

I was able to build something like this , to invoke one of python files , I feel if we put a wrapper around it , and take the python code as an input , we should be able to get it invoked via IronPython …

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
using IronPython.Hosting;
using IronPython.Runtime;
using IronPython;
using Microsoft.Scripting.Hosting;

namespace IronPython_Implimentation
{
public class Class1
{
public static void Main(string[] args)
{
ScriptEngine engine = Python.CreateEngine();

        var result = engine.Execute("2+2");
        System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine("Method1");

        Console.WriteLine(result);
    }


}

}

Imagine a world where you manipulate data with Python Pandas! So elegant. So fast.
What if we could import a Python Package and use python instead of VB.Net and take advantage of all the python-libraries available?
