RapidMiner Python API for Individual Operators

winnwinn Member Posts: 11 Learner I
Looking at RapidMiner Python Scripting documentation here: https://docs.rapidminer.com/latest/developers/python/ and the implementation in Studio: https://github.com/rapidminer/python-rapidminer/blob/master/docs/api/Studio.md, I can see that RapidMiner has mainly 3 APIs to integrate with Python: read_resource, write_resource and run_process. 
I am wondering if there is an an API to execute only specific operators using Python script. For example, if I want to run only Read CSV operator or Decision Tree operator without creating it as a process?

    Hi there,

    The unit of execution in the RapidMiner world are processes, so that unit of execution is supported on the Python API as well.
    You always have to create a process (in your case a single-operator one if that's what you need) and interact from Python code via the run_process method.

    Why would this be important in your use case? Or do you find this too cumbersome? I'm really curious.
