Reading a characteristic from GATT table using a python script

Hi.

currently i use the nrf connect with a dongle to connect to a ble device to read/write characteristics for testing purposes.

Now i want to do it automatically using a python testing script that i am writing.

i want to be able to use the nrf connect functionality (scan/connect/read/write etc) from the python script.

What is your recommendation?

is there a cli tool for the nrf connect so i can use it in my script?

Thank you,
