I have PowerShell installed on ubuntu 20.04 and I want to do the following steps from the python script:

  • Invoke it
  • Import PowerShell module
  • Run Powershell module several times

From the terminal, I would do it as:

  • pwsh
  • Import-Module ./MyModule.psd1
  • MyModule -param 'param_val' -Quiet > filename several times

I was trying to use

p = subprocess.Popen("pwsh", stdin=subprocess.PIPE, stdout=subprocess.PIPE, stderr=subprocess.PIPE, shell=True, universal_newlines=True)
p.stdin.write("Import-Module ./MyModule.psd1")
#in loop
p.stdin.write("MyModule -param 'param_val' -Quiet > filename")

Which is obviously not working. I tried to use Thread and Queue but I am afraid that the problem is not in it. I would be extremely grateful for any help and suggestions.
