A python workflows library that supports writing Processes with a well defined set of inputs and outputs that can be chained together and nested.
Process can be remotely controlled by sending messages over RabbitMQ all from a simple interface
Process can be saved between steps and continued later
Optional explicit specification of inputs and outputs including their types, validation functions, help strings, etc.
It is recommended to install plumpy into a virtual environment:
$ pip install plumpy
or via Conda:
$ conda install plumpy
or to work directly from the source code:
$ git clone https://github.com/aiidateam/plumpy.git $ cd plumpy $ pip install -e ".[tests,docs]"
For remote controlled processes, you will also need to install and start the RabbitMQ server.
After you have successfully installed plumpy, you can walk-through the user tutorial to help you on your way.
