Yes, you can run your Python script from an installed custom app in ERPNext. To do this, you can create a custom button or a custom page in your app and execute your script when the button is clicked or the page is accessed.

To insert data into ERPNext using Python, you can use the Frappe framework. You can use the frappe.get_doc function to create new documents and insert data into the database.

Here is an example of how you can insert data into the “Customer” doctype:

import frappe

# read the csv file into a pandas dataframe
df = pandas.read_csv('file.csv')

# loop through the rows of the dataframe and insert data into ERPNext
for index, row in df.iterrows():
    customer = frappe.get_doc({
        "doctype": "Customer",
        "customer_name": row["customer_name"],
        "email_id": row["email_id"],
        # add more fields here as required

Then, for installing the pandas you can use this commend on your terminal:

pip install pandas

Hope this will help you out.

Thank you.
