This Python package provides a collection of tools for:
- Analyzing traces of actual workflow executions;
- Producing recipes structures for creating workflow recipes for workflow generation; and
- Generating synthetic realistic workflow traces.
WorkflowHub is available on PyPI. WorkflowHub requires Python3.5+ and has been tested on Linux and macOS.
WorkflowHub uses pygraphviz and thus needs the graphviz package installed (version 2.16 or later). You can install graphviz easily on Linux with your favorite package manager, for example for Debian-based distributions:
sudo apt-get install graphviz libgraphviz-dev
and for RedHat-based distributions:
sudo yum install python-devel graphviz-devel
On macOS you can use
brew package manager:
brew install graphviz
Installation using pip
pip can be used to install WorkflowHub, we suggest the following
approach for reliable installation when many Python environments are available:
$ python3 -m pip install workflowhub
Retrieving the latest unstable version
If you want to use the latest WorkflowHub unstable version, that will contain brand new features (but also contain bugs as the stabilization work is still underway), you may consider retrieving the latest unstable version.
Cloning from WorkflowHub's GitHub repository:
$ git clone https://github.com/workflowhub/workflowhub $ cd workflowhub $ pip install .
