Overview

signac is designed to assist large-scale multidimensional computational data generation and analysis. It is assumed that the work can be divided into so called projects, where each project is vaguely confined by roughly similar structured data, e.g., a parameter study.

We define the process of generating or manipulating data a job. Every job operates on a set of well-defined unique parameters, which define the job’s context. This means that all data is uniquely addressable from the associated parameters.

You can use signac to manage a project based on this data model and index data for export into a database.
