In order to make an application cross-platform, there may be times when you want to inspect the operating system and take a different action depending on whether it is Linux, Mac, Windows, or other.
These examples will show you how to find relevant information about operating system using python platform modules.
#python program to find operating system information import platform print(platform.system()) # e.g. Windows, Linux, Darwin print(platform.architecture()) # e.g. 64-bit print(platform.machine()) # e.g. x86_64 print(platform.node()) # hostname print(platform.processor()) # processor information print(platform.release()) # version of os
Windows ('64bit', 'WindowsPE') AMD64 LAPTOP-M4EEHVNS Intel64 Family 6 Model 165 Stepping 2, GenuineIntel 10
