Random values inside the axes of a variable font

I'm working with my typeface "Extra" to produce different animations with drawbot.
Im fairly new to python and i'm trying to write a script that uses random values inside of the axes of a variable font.
This typeface has 3 axes
So, instead of saying that i want X values to be animated, how can i say to the program to chose random ones inside of these 3 axes, and animated randomly every time i export as a gif?
Thank you very much, hope you can help me!
Have a good day

I am not quite sure what exactly you are asking but the get a random integer value inside a range you could use
randint(min_value, max_value). This works for integers. To get a random value between 100 and 900 you would use
If you have a smaller range and want fractions as well you could use
min_value + random() * (max_value - min_value)eg
100 + (900-100) * random()
I hope that helps, good luck!
