Today, I like to give you a brief introduction to a python library called invoke that is used to execute custom tasks within a shell session. Furthermore, I like to show you how invoke is used to simplify the execution of Ansible playbooks within the Product Database.
In the last posts, I described how the Web service is created and how it works. Now it is time to deploy it on a server.
