STOA stands for Script Tracking for Observational Astronomy and is a workflow management system primarily designed for large scale production of interferometry data.
This software is still in development; users are encouraged to contact prh44 (AT) cam.ac.uk for assistance, and to follow updates carefully.
How to Install

pip - we recommend that you use a virtual environment when trying this out. When you have one set up, install
tornado and you should be good to go
In order to prepare STOA to run, type
this only need be done once per STOA install. Then type
./start.sh example 9000
to run the demo. Go to your browser and visit
localhost:9000 to try it out
How to Use
Log in as
guest (no password is required) and try to create a worktable to implement the 'find' command. Once this table is present, go into it and add a new row with 'product' as its input, and then run that row.
