caravel is a local web GUI for [looper](https://looper.readthedocs.io/). Caravel gives you a slick web interface to interact with your projects formatted as [PEPs](http://pepkit.github.io). You can use it to submit jobs to any cluster resource manager, monitor jobs, summarize results, and browse project summary web pages. caravel basically builds on top of looper, but uses the lightweight flask microframework to give you a web interface, making it even easier to manage your jobs for those who like pointy-clicky.
Documentation is hosted at [caravel.databio.org](http://caravel.databio.org) (source in the [/docs](/docs) folder).
