Rabix Composer will remain available as a local sbg:draft2 and CWL 1.0 tool and workflow editor. However, please note that Seven Bridges is not actively maintaining or extending Rabix Composer at the moment (Q2 2021). The repository will remain open for new issues and pull requests, but please have in mind that those may not be processed in a timely manner.
If you need an up-to-date CWL editor, you can create an account either on the CGC http://cgc.sbgenomics.com/, Biodata Catalyst powered by Seven Bridges https://platform.sb.biodatacatalyst.nhlbi.nih.gov/, or on CAVATICA https://cavatica.sbgenomics.com/ and use the Web Composer available there. The Web Composer is also available on the Seven Bridges Commercial offerings.
Rabix Composer is an open source editor for Common Workflow Language documents.
It has a graphical mode allowing drag and drop creation of workflows and wizard type creation of individual tools.
It also has a text mode for entering CWL code directly. The graphical and text modes work seamlessly together.
