The Python Bridge is infrastructure to run, use and interact with Python from GT.

More specifically, the Python Bridge allows you to send Python code to a Python process running outside GT and get a result back, or just for side effect. A number of primitive types can be transferred directly but in most cases you will work with proxies to the remote Python objects.

The Python Bridge is one instance of GT's LanguageLink framework. As such it offers all kinds of tools to interact with Python at a high level.

The following pages describes the default way to get started as well as a number of alternatives that expose more internal details for advanced use cases.
