Or from source

git clone
cd cwltest && python install

Run on the command line

Generate conformance badges using cwltest

To make badges that show the results of the conformance test, you can generate JSON files for by using --badgedir option

To generate JSON files:

cwltest --test test-descriptions.yml --tool cwl-runner --badgedir badges
$ cat badges/command_line_tool.json | jq .
  "subject": "command_line_tool",
  "status": "100%",
  "color": "green"

Once you upload JSON file to a server, you make a badge by using a link like or (for flat badges).
