Build Bash/shell commands into your pipeline

Execute a Bash/shell command, directly or as a read from a script file.

About this integration

The Dagster shell library provides utilities and op factories for the execution of inline shell scripts or script files.

It provides functions for constructing ops to execute a shell command, or execute a shell command read from a script file. You can also execute a shell command from within a Dagster op (or from Python in general), on either op input data, or any data generated within a generic python op.


pip install dagster-shell


from dagster_shell import create_shell_script_op
from dagster import file_relative_path, job

def my_job():
    a = create_shell_script_op(file_relative_path(__file__, ""), name="a")

About Shell

A shell is a computer program that presents a command line interface which allows you to control your computer using commands entered with a keyboard instead of controlling graphical user interfaces (GUIs) with a mouse/keyboard/touchscreen combination.
