Opening an IDE with Python

  • Last Updated : 05 Sep, 2020

IDE (Integrated Development Environment) is a software application that provides many facilities for easily developing the software. Let us see how to open an IDE with a Python script. First of all, we have to get the path of the IDE. To do that, open the file location and then copy the target in the path.

We have to copy the target from the file location

We will be using the os.startfile() method to run the IDE. We will pass the path of the IDE as the parameter. 

Python3




# importing the module
import os
  
# setting the path of the IDE
# use of \\ is important because 
# \ will be treated as a escape sequence
# here we are using the Arduino Ide 
# path to open the arduino ide
path="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Arduino\\arduino.exe"
  
# using the os.startfile() method
os.startfile(path)
