Connecting Arduino to Python via Bluetooth

I'm creating a project where I'm attempting to send analog data recorded from an FSR to a computer to generate a real-time graph. I understand the basics of Arduino, Python, Bluetooth, and serial communication, but I want to establish the connection as easily as possible cleanmaster, which means that I don't want to select the serial port via the Arduino IDE.

Is it possible to establish the serial port outside of the IDE? I would like for a serial communication to be established after simply pairing the Bluetooth dongle to the Bluetooth shield.

I am using an Arduino Uno with the Bluefruit EZ-Link Shield

Thank you!
