Records the inputs and outputs of scripts

Project description

Build Status Documentation Status

Pirec is a Python package for wrapping scripts so that their inputs and outputs are preserved in a consistent way and results are recorded.


from pirec import call, record, pipeline
from pirec.artefacts import TextFile

def pipeline_stage_1(f):
    call(['/bin/cat', f.filename])

def pipeline_stage_2(f):
    call(['/bin/cat', f.filename])

def my_pipeline(file1, file2):

def example_pipeline():
        TextFile('month00/data.txt'), TextFile('month12/data.txt')

if __name__ == '__main__':


pip install pirec


Pirec is tested with Python v2.7 - 3.6. Use of the MongoDB or SQLDatabase result recorders requires the installation of the pymongo or sqlalchemy modules as appropriate. Depending on your database SQLAlchemy may require additional support libraries to be installed.


Full documentation is hosted on Read the Docs.
