I'm New to Luigi, What's Good to Know About?

You're new to the Luigi framework, and already pretty close to falling in love with it. At the moment, you are using it akin to an ETL tool but would like to know what else it can be used for. After all, it's supposed to be general purpose, right?

Right now there's little time to dive into the topic in-depth, but it would still be good to know the ins-and-outs of slightly hidden but useful concepts you might have overseen. The following list is a mix of common misconceptions and non-widely advertised features which you should know about. It is not exhaustive, nor too well structured.

In addition, this information does not substitute for a thorough approach to the topic, but knowing these can help you save time and understand the tool better until you get around to it.
