Execute Python Project Directory as a Script
An elegant way to execute Python projects.
We mostly run a Python pipeline by invoking a script (.𝗽𝘆 file).
But did you know you can also execute the Python project directory as a script?
To do this, rename the base file of your project to __𝗺𝗮𝗶𝗻__.𝗽𝘆.
As a result, you can execute the whole pipeline by running the parent directory itself.
This is concise and elegant.
It also makes it easier for other users to use your project, as they are not required to dig into the directory and locate the base file.
