Batch execute any task, with simple json config

Project description

Batch execute any task, with simple json config

This module makes it possible to batch execute almost every program that runs from command line on files in input directory and outputs those into output directory (including directory structure). Settings are taken from config.json file. In the future there will be new features added.

Installation

pip install batchexec
