Welcome to gwf
gwf is a flexible, pragmatic workflow tool for building and running large, scientific workflows. It runs on Python 3.5+ and is developed at the Bioinformatics Research Centre (BiRC), Aarhus University.
- To get a feeling for what a gwf workflow looks like, have a look at a few examples.
- Getting started
- To quickly get started writing workflows in gwf you can read the :ref:`tutorial`.
- We don't have the backend you need to run your workflow on your cluster? See the :ref:`writing_backends` section to roll your own.
- We aim to make gwf a community developed project. Learn how to :doc:`contribute </development/forcontributors>`.
To install gwf via pip:
pip install gwf
To install gwf via conda:
conda config --add channels gwforg conda install gwf
We recommend that you install gwf in a project-specific environment:
conda config --add channels gwforg conda create -n myproject python=3.5 gwf dep1 dep2 ... source activate myproject
