In DevOps, we use different scripting languages for different purposes. There is no single language that can work in all the scenarios. Some of the popular scripting languages that we use are as follows:
- Bash: On Unix based systems we use Bash shell scripting for automating tasks.
- Python: For complicated programming and large modules we use Python. We can easily use a wide variety of standard libraries with Python.
- Groovy: This is a Java based scripting language. We need JVM installed in an environment to use Groovy. It is very powerful and it provides very powerful features.
- Perl: This is another language that is very useful for text parsing. We use it in web applications.
