bistro is an OCaml library to build and run
computations represented by a collection of interdependent scripts, as
is often found in applied research (especially computational
build complex and composable workflows declaratively
simple and lightweight wrapping of new components
resume-on-failure: if something fails, fix it and the workflow will
restart from where it stopped
distributed workflow execution
development-friendly: when a script is modified, bistro
automatically finds out what needs to be recomputed
automatic naming of generated files
static typing: detect file format errors at compile time!
The library provides a datatype to represent scripts (including
metadata and dependencies), an engine to run workflows and a
standard library providing components for popular tools (although
mostly related to computational biology and unix for now).
Questions, suggestions or contributions are welcome, please file an
issue as needed.
