Has anyone experimented with using Python within LC?

Late to the game... I use the same method for PHP. I needed to batch minify
html/js/css files. There is a great PHP script to do it. Batch it up with LC
and one button did it all. There is a ton of open source useful PHP that can
be integrated with ease to LC. I'll remember this if I need some Python in
the future.

Thanks Geoff.

I've now figured out that calling a Python file from within LC is as easy

put shell(quote & "<path_to_python>" & quote && quote &
"<path_to_python_file>" & quote)

Then whatever gets print()'ed in Python gets returned to LC. Has anyone done
work this way and has ideas on best practices for some sort of

1. generate python code
2. write python code to a file
3. write data to a (separate?) file
4. call the code
5. process the results
