Introduction

In Python, we use a package that stores a program to perform a particular operation. Packages are a crucial component of programming. Without packages, we waste a lot of time rewriting code that has already been developed.

Imagine if we don't have packages. We'll have to start from the beginning when we need functionality in our program file. We need to import the packages to use them.

The Sultan package 

The Sultan package is a package that runs command-line interface(CLI) from our Python program. For instance, if we want to create a file through the CLI command, we can easily use touch in our Python program file by utilizing the Sultan package.

Syntax

# importing sultan package 
from sultan.api import Sultan
Syntax of the Sultan package
  • In Python, we have to import the Sultan package to use it.

Code example

Let's look at the code below:

## import sultan package 
from sultan.api import Sultan
s = Sultan()
## install the nodejs package 
s.apt("install -y nodejs").run()

Note: It will take some time because of the nodejs package installation. To confirm the installation, we can use nodejs --version command in the terminal as it will reflect the version of the node.

Code explanation

  • Line 2: We import the sultan package.
  • Line 5 We install the node package.
