You can do pretty much everything with Python! Still, there's a lot of value in becoming proficient on the command-line. A well-crafted bash command or script can save hours of time otherwise spend on coding it yourself (or doing stuff manually!).
The Unix command-line has been around for decades and it’s still going strong. Part of that success comes from the Unix philosophy:
Write programs that do one thing and do it well.
Write programs to work together.
When working with the command line, it’s good to keep this philosophy in mind. You’ll find out that there’s always a combination of tools that does exactly what you want. The art is finding them and combining them properly.
