For example, the Apify API Client for Python makes it easy to run your own actors or actors from the Apify Store by simply using the .call() method to start an actor and wait for it to finish.

from apify_client import ApifyClient

apify_client = ApifyClient('MY-APIFY-TOKEN')

# Start an actor and wait for it to finish
actor_call ='john-doe/my-cool-actor').call()

# Fetch results from the actor run's default dataset
dataset_items = apify_client.dataset(actor_call['defaultDatasetId']).list_items().items
