Compi is an application development framework for portable computational pipelines. A software pipeline is a chain of processing elements so that the output of each element is the input of the next.
There are many fields where computational pipelines constitute the main architecture of applications, such as big data analysis or bioinformatics.
Many pipelines combine third party tools along with custom made processes, conforming the final pipeline. Compi is the framework helping to create the final, portable application.

The Compi ecosystem
Compi is an ecosystem that comprises:
compi: the workflow engine with a command-line user interface to control the pipeline execution.
compi-dk: a command-line tool to help in the development and packaging of Compi-based applications.
- Compi Hub: a public repository of Compi pipelines that allows other users to discover, browse and reuse them easily.
compi-dk for Linux 64-bit systems are available here: https://www.sing-group.org/compi#downloads
Portable versions (.tar.gz) and self-extracted installers (.bsx) are available for both.
compi distributions are self-contained and do not require any dependencies.
compi-dk only requires Docker, which should be available for the
compi-dk build command to work.
Build from source
Alternatively, the compi project can be build to obtain the
To do so, just download or clone this project and run the following command (Note: requires Maven 3.x and Java 1.8):
mvn clean package -PcreateInstaller
If the build succeeds, then:
compi-dkbuilds will be available at
compi/dk/target/dist/, respectively. Java is required to run these binaries. The
