Firecloud API bindings and FISS CLI

Project description


Firecloud API bindings and FISS Command-Line interface.

This package was formerly known as "fissfc", but has evolved
to provide more sophisticated abstractions for interacting
with firecloud in addition to the command line tool.


Firecloud uses the Google Cloud SDK ( to manage
authorization. To use the firecloud CLI or API, you must install the SDK and
login locally with

gcloud auth login
