Hi, I have chained tasks that are simply database operations, they don't return anything but they have to be run in a specific order. To this day I've simply used a boolean, I
return True
and pass it, unused, to the next task. Is that ok or did I miss a way to do that more "beautifully" in the docs ? (I don't find it particularly bad, + with the fact that I suffix it with "_done" I think it's explicit, but was still wondering)
Copy code
t1_done = task1()
t2_done = task2(t1_done)

Hey ! The recent 1.1.0 release might have what you're looking for : the `.pipe` operator. It makes this kind of use case a bit more readable from a developer perspective.

You can specify upstream tasks. Look here under "_You can specify non-data dependencies with the functional API_"

Thanks to you both ! Looks like I was right to ask for a more beautiful way of doing, I'll see which one of these best applies to my case Thanks again
