Python Fabric How to Show or List All Available Tasks (98 words)

Showing or displaying the available tasks inside a fabric fabfile is one of those things that almost everyone wants to do at some point and usually works out you can just request a task you know will not exist (usually found through a typo). However there is a way to list them built into fabric itself.

The below are all methods which can be used to display the currently defined tasks.

fab -l 
fab -list
fab taskthatdoesnotexist

Try any of the above where a fabfile is located and be presented with a list of all the available tasks.
