Running Python in the Background

    Is there any way I can run a python script in the background, without ever opening a terminal window? Preferably, this would be a .app that I click, never shows up in dock, but starts the process, and ends it when its finished just like it would in a terminal window. Is there any way to do this?

    Check out Platypus. It lets you wrap a script into a .app, and has an option for "Runs in background".
