Bionic is a Python framework for building, running, and sharing data science research workflows. It uses dependency injection to automatically gather together your Python functions into a reusable, configurable tool.

Bionic is currently in alpha. It is suitable for small-to-medium-size research projects: i.e., projects that fit in memory, have a small number of collaborators, and are intended to generate insight or some data artifact (like a model) rather than run in production. (These constraints will be eliminated over time.) The API will continue to evolve; we will attempt to keep it backwards-compatible as long as possible, but there will probably be at least one breaking API change in the future.

Check out the full documentation, or go straight to Get Started.


Bionic can be installed from PyPI:

pip install bionic[standard]

You'll probably want to install Graphviz as well. See the Installation docs for more details on installing and configuring Bionic's dependencies.
