Scientific Filesystem (SCIF)
The Scientific Filesystem is an organizational format for scientific software and metadata. Our goals are centered around consistency, transparency, programmatic accessibility, and modularity. Read about the format.
Please contribute to the clients below, or the specification here.
- vsoch/scif is the Python client, ideal for scientific use cases, or if you want interactivity
- sci-f/scif-go is the GoLang library, intended for use with GoLang projects.
Both can be installed and used in a container base. See the documentation for quick starts.
