A CLI tool for cataloging pilot 1 data

Project description

Globus Pilot License

A Command Line tool for managing data in Globus Search as well as transferring corresponding data to and from a Globus Endpoint.


Pilot requires python 3.6+, you can install with the following:

pip install globus-pilot

See the Read-The-Docs Page for more options.

Quick Start

For a full walkthrough, see the User Guide. Administrators can also view the Admin Guide.

A quick walkthrough is below.

First, login using Globus:

pilot login

Set your Search Index:

pilot index set <myindex>

Then choose your project. See pilot project info for info on any listed project:

pilot project
pilot project set <myproject>

You can use list to get a high level overview of the data:

pilot list

If you want more detail about a specific search record, you can use describe to view details:

pilot describe dose_response/rescaled_combined_single_drug_growth

You can also download the data associated with the search record:

pilot download dose_response/rescaled_combined_single_drug_growth

When you want to add more data to the collection, you can use the upload command. This will upload the data in addition to creating a record in Globus Search to track it.

touch my_data.tsv
pilot upload my_data.tsv test_dir --dry-run --verbose -j my_metadata.json

The two flags ‘–dry-run –verbose’ are optional but handy for testing. ‘-j my_metadata.json’ is for providing any extra metadata the pilot tool can’t automatically determine. Here is an example of the metadata:

    "title": "Drug Identifiers",
    "description": "Drug identifiers, including InChIKey, SMILES, and PubChem.",
    "data_type": "Drug Response",
    "dataframe_type": "List",
    "source": [
