It really depends on the task.
I love automating all things that talk with HTTP with Python.
Doing this in bash with curl is possible but ugly.

When interacting with other local programs, I like bash.

I would like to add another tool, similar in spirit to google's Fire.
The is a much simpler library (easier to use, and smaller code base).

mach.py (do in German) allows you to write:

from mach import mach1

class Hello:

default = 'greet'

def greet(self, name: str=""):
if not name:
name = input('Your name: ')
print("Hello %s" % name)

if __name__ == '__main__':
