UI for local development of server executed projects.

## Project description

parcell helps you to keep your work on your machine even when it needs to be executed remotely. This is done by sending your project’s code to one of your beefy worker servers, running the code, and sending the results back. Multiple tasks can be run in parallel and on different servers to balance the load. You can keep improving your code on your machine without lag and get notified when submitted tasks have been completed. No setup on the server side is required.

## Getting started

Install the project via:

pip install parcell

Choose a working directory for your projects and cd into it.

Now run

parcell add PROJECTNAME

where PROJECTNAME is the name of the project you want to create. Follow all instructions until the script creates your project. If the command cannot be found try restarting the terminal or use python -m parcell … instead.

Then run

parcell start

to start the web interface. Note that you can avoid retyping your passwords for different servers using the --reuse-pw command line argument in either command (given all the servers accept the same password). Once the web interface is started you can interact with your project. When finished you can stop parcell by typing quit in the terminal or pressing CTRL-C. Typing restart restarts the web interface.

Use

parcell -h

or

parcell COMMAND -h

to get further information about the command line capabilities.

## Uninstalling

parcell delete

before uninstalling via pip. This makes sure that all local and remote files are removed and all running tasks are stopped. The command can also be used to remove specific servers. Note that in order to be able to clean files on the server side it must be possible to connect to the server at the time of removal.

## Contributing
