Package that integrates AiiDAlab with Electronic Laboratory Notebooks.

Project description


Continuous Integration

Integrate AiiDAlab with Electronic Laboratory Notebooks (ELN). This repository implements a general API for interfacing AiiDAlab with some ELN and a concrete implementation for the integration with the cheminfo ELN.

AiiDAlab-Cheminfo ELN implementation

As a first prototype we implemented an integration with the open-source cheminfo ELN. The ELN and integration can be tested via the public deployment of the ELN. Documentation on how to use the frontend can be found here.


  • eln_instance refers to the URL of the ELN API.
  • eln_type referst to the type of ELN, e.g. "cheminfo", "openbis".
  • data_type "subfolder" in the cheminfo data schema of characterization techniques, e.g., "xray", "isotherm" spectrum_type will be renamed to this
  • sample_uuid refers to the sample unique identifier in the ELN database
  • file_name refers to the name of the file attached to the sample and containing information of the specified data_type.
  • file_content refers to the content of the file attached to the sample.
  • node refers to the AiiDA database node.
  • token refers to the token that gives access to the ELN database.
  • export_data() sends the AiiDA node (stored in the node attribute) to the ELN.
  • import_data() import ELN data into an AiiDA node.
  • sample object that refers to an ELN sample, previously known as sample_manager.
  • sample.put_data() - put data into the ELN sample.
  • sample.get_data() - get data from the ELN sample.

For maintainers

To create a new release, clone the repository, install development dependencies with pip install '.[dev]', and then execute bumpver update --major/--minor/--patch. This will:

  1. Create a tagged release with bumped version and push it to the repository.
  2. Trigger a GitHub actions workflow that creates a GitHub release.

Additional notes:

  • Use the --dry option to preview the release change.
  • The release tag (e.g. a/b/rc) is determined from the last release. Use the --tag option to switch the release tag.
