What scriptcwl can do for you

  • Create CWL workflows without learning CWL or YAML
  • Make workflows by programming
  • Design workflows interactively in Jupyter notebooks

Scriptcwl is a Python package for creating Common Workflow Language (CWL) workflows by writing a Python script instead of manually typing YAML or using a GUI. To work with scriptcwl, you need to give it a bunch of CWL CommandLineTools. Then you subsequently specify the workflow inputs, steps, and workflow outputs, and save the result to a file. This can be done interactively in a Jupyter notebook. A scriptcwl script to generate a workflow provides a concise and transparent representation of your workflow; one that is much more readable than YAML.
