How to use the python subprocess to get the latest commit id from master(git repo)

hari Source

I am unable to get the latest commit id from the master using the python subprocess task . Please note the details below.

Script details:

Release_Commit_result= subprocess.check_output("git", "log", "-1", "--pretty=format:","%H")

when I ran the script, I am getting following out put as,


Release_Commit_result= subprocess.check_output("git", "log", "-1", "--pretty=format:","%H")

File "/usr/lib/python2.7/", line 212, in check_output
process = Popen(stdout=PIPE, *popenargs, **kwargs)


init() got multiple values for enter code herekeyword argument 'stdout'

This git command alone actually gives the out put when it ran from the git bash.

Execute the command giving the arguments in an array or in a single string. Like this:

subprocess.check_output(["git", "log", "-1", "--pretty-format:%H"])

Please see as reference.

UPDATE Edited command according to phd's suggestion, in the comments.
