Idiots Guide to running a python script

Hi guys,


I have a python script that I use to pull info from my alarm system into MQTT which I then use in Home Assistant.  I always used to call this from home assistant.  They have now changed HA so that scripts can only run for 60 seconds and this needs to keep running.  Has anyone any advice on how I could do this natively in unraid?


I'd be very grateful for any help.

So far as the python part goes my recommendation is to use a python docker container to run your python script in. So you would create a User Scripts script to launch your python script, but rather than call it directly you would do something like

docker run --rm -d -v /path/to/script/containing/folder/on/host:/mnt:ro --workdir /mnt python:3 ./ --argument-for-script YES
