Project description


Pipelines is a tool that executes - pipelines!

Consider pipelines as sequence of tasks, Pipelines lets you trigger them simply.

Pipelines comes all bundled with:

  • an API
  • a web frontend
  • a CLI

Pipelines is primarily developed to run on Linux / MacOS. Windows support is not available at the moment.


pip install pipelines

Or get the latest dev version from Github and run pip install . from within the cloned repo.


The configuration files can be found in /etc/pipelines/.

Currently not supported! too bad, come back at 0.1.0!


# Listening address / port
port: 8888

# Admin user
user: admin
pass: admin

# Enable web interface
ui: True

# Workspace Directory
# Where all the pipelines and runs will be stored
workspace: /var/lib/pipelines/workspace

# Log
log_file: /var/log/pipelines/pipelines.log
log_level: error

Run standalone

Start the API with the following:

pipelines api

Run as a daemon

Create a dedicated user to run pipelines

# Create a pipelines user
useradd -m -d /var/lib/pipelines -s /sbin/nologin pipelines

# Create the workspace folder (optional)
mkdir /var/lib/pipelines/workspace
chown -R pipelines. /var/lib/pipelines

# Create a SSH key pair (optional)
sudo -u pipelines ssh-keygen

You may want to rely on supervisord to run the API.

# Ubuntu / Debian
apt-get install supervisor

# CentOS / RedHat (to confirm)
yum install supervisord

Copy and adapt de config file from etc/supervisor/pipelines.conf to /etc/supervisor

# Update and reload supervisord
supervisorctl reread
supervisorctl update
supervisorctl start pipelines

Access the web interface at http://localhost:8888/web

Pipelines descriptions

Pipeline definition file uses YAML syntax. Example:

  - executor: executors.dummy
    cmd: "anything"
  - executor: executors.bash
    cmd: "sleep 1 && echo {{workspace}} > ~/hhh"
  - executor: executors.python
    virtualenv: /Users/juha/work/getpipeline/.venv
    workdir: /Users/juha/work/getpipeline/test


No definitive roadmap for the moment, mainly focusing on having a lean code base (heavy refactoring to come).

Among the possible features:

  • better web UI
  • better webhook management
  • better management of the tasks (celery?)
  • better CLI
  • toolbar
  • auth
  • etc.
