Laboratory computational resource management

Project Description

# BotBot [![Build Status](](

A manager for lab computational resources.

# Functionality

  • Ensures all files in a shared folder are group readable.
  • Encourages users to use symbolic links instead of copying large files.
  • Suggests file compression when appropriate to save space.
  • Modular design allowing for easy extension.

# Installation

## Automatic

Pretty simple:

`pip install botbot`

## Manual

If you want the latest and greatest development code, go ahead and clone this repo:

` git clone cd BotBot python install `

# Configuration

BotBot uses 2 primary configuration files: ~/.botbotignore and ~/.botbot/botbot.conf.

## .botbotignore

This is a list of files that BotBot won’t check. It is similar in structure to a .gitignore file, but it’s a bit simpler. Instead of git’s structure, each line is a string which can be handled by the Python built-in [glob]( module. Anything after a # character will be ignored, so these can be used to add comments.

## .botbot/botbot.conf

Configuration variables are stored here. The file is an .ini-style configuration formatted file. The variables are stored in sections as follows:

  • [checks]
    • oldage: defines how many days old a file must be to be considered “old”.
    • largesize: defines how many bytes large a file must be to be considered “large”.

# Testing

BotBot uses pytest as its test suite. To run the tests, run `py.test` in the project root directory.
