The signac framework is currently comprised of three packages. Both signac-flow and signac-dashboard require the signac core package.
The links below lead to the package-specific documentation, including a complete API documentation and changelogs.
The core signac package implements a simple, serverless, distributed database directly on the file system. It allows users to:
Manage project data with a well-defined indexable storage layout for data and metadata.
Search, filter, group, and manipulate the data in existing signac projects.
Create, track, and archive datasets.
Collaborate on data-intensive projects using a common schema.
The signac-flow package allows users to:
Implement reproducible computational workflows for a project data space managed with signac.
Specify operation dependencies with conditions, allowing linear or branched execution
Run workflows from the command line.
Submit jobs to high-performance computing (HPC) clusters.
The signac-dashboard package allows users to browse signac-managed data spaces:
Visualize and analyze job data such as text, images, or video.
Share and collaborate on workspace data through a browser-based GUI.
