I have a script named test1.py which is not in a module. It just has code that should execute when the script itself is run. There are no functions, classes, methods etc. I have another script which runs as a service. I want to call test1.py from the script running as a service.
print "I am a test"
print "see! I do nothing productive."
# lots of stuff here
test1.py # do whatever is in test1.py
The usual way to do this is something like the following.
def some_func(): print 'in test 1, unproductive' if __name__ == '__main__': # test1.py executed as script # do something some_func()
import test1 def service_func(): print 'service func' if __name__ == '__main__': # service.py executed as script # do something service_func() test1.some_func()
