The Prefect task library is a constantly growing list of pre-defined tasks that provide off-the-shelf
functionality for working with a wide range of tools anywhere from shell script execution to kubernetes
job management to sending tweets. A majority of the task library is community supported and thus opens
the door for users who want to contribute tasks for working with any number of tools. Tasks in the task
library are created with a specific goal in mind such as creating a Kubernetes job with
CreateNamespacedJob or invoking an AWS lambda
Below is a table showcasing some of the tasks that have been contributed to the task library for
interfacing with varying tools and services that users have deemed useful. For a full list of tasks in
the library and more information on how to use them visit the API reference documentation
Tasks marked with the Verified badge have been reviewed and approved by Prefect.
