There is an EDK II port of Python in the EDK II and EADK distributions on www.tianocore.org. It is located in AppPkg/Applications/Python.
You can build that, install it and the required libraries to a flash drive, and run it from the Shell.
Make sure that you read the ReadMe files in AppPkg and AppPkg/Applications/Python.
Python sends its interactive output to stderr instead of stdout. Make sure that you have enabled STDERR in the EFI setup on your platform.
This seems like it should be fairly simple but I keep going around in circles.
I want to run Python scripts under the EFI shell. Do I need to rebuild and reinstall UEFI or is there a version of Python that I can put on a flash drive and use?
