bistro

A library to build and run distributed workflows
Description

bistro is an OCaml library to build and run computations represented by a collection of interdependent scripts, as is often found in data analysis (especially computational biology).

Features:

  • 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
  • parallel 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).
