is there anything builtin for making shell execution and ssh execution more convenient, or would I just leverage the best I can find in terms of python libraries for that?

Hey @David Hogarty, welcome! I know that we have a ShellTask, but I’m not sure if we have something in our task library for ssh. https://docs.prefect.io/api/latest/tasks/shell.html#shelltask

hey @David Hogarty, the ShellTask is really easily extendible like such:
Copy code
class ExtendShell(ShellTask):
    def run(self):
        # Set the command arg here so you can dynamically build the command string
        self.command = f"some shell command"
        super(ExtendShell, self).run()
I haven't tried this for
ssh
but should make shell execution in general more convenient!
