queenbee-pollination extends queenbee to interact with the Pollination API

Project description


queenbee-pollination extends queenbee in order to interact with the Pollination API.


You can install this as a cli tool using the following command:

pip install queenbee-pollination[cli]

CLI QuickStart


When you first run any queenbee-pollination command through the CLI you will be required to enter some authentication details so that the tool can interact with the Pollination API using your account.

You will need your Pollination API token Key and ID which can be found on your account page.

You will be prompted to do so by the CLI as demonstrated below:

> queenbee pollination workflows

Looks like this is your first time logging in.

To interract with Pollination you need to save authentication credentials in C:\Users\me\.queenbee

This tool will walk you through this process:

Enter your API Token ID: f15be412fe6f41dc01440f2363a13fed
Enter your API Token Secret: 
Logging in using api tokens...

You can now run queenbee pollination commands as an authenticated user!
Check the and modify the config file at your own risk: C:\Users\me\.queenbee

You can now check the configuration file saved at the path indicated in you command line. in the case of the example above the path to the config file is: C:\Users\me\.queenbee.

Hello World!

We have compiled a quick demo workflow for you to test out the queenbee-pollination plugin.

Copy and save the text below into a file called hello.yaml.

type: workflow
name: hello-world

- name: whalesay
  image: docker/whalesay

- type: function
  name: cowsay
  operator: whalesay
    - name: word
  command: cowsay {{inputs.parameters.word}}

  name: say-hello-world
  - name: say-hello
    template: cowsay
      - name: word
        value: hello
  - name: say-world
    template: cowsay
    dependencies: ['say-hello']
      - name: word
        value: world
  - name: exclamate
    template: cowsay
    dependencies: ['say-world']
      - name: word
        value: '!'
  1. Save the workflow to the Pollination platform
> queenbee pollination workflows create -f hello.yaml

Successfully updated workflow hello-world

  1. Submit a simulation to run using the hello-world workflow template
> queenbee pollination simulations submit -w 2444c12f-06f3-47c9-9566-e71860017961

Succesfully created simulation: f01b6926-c953-4b4d-be7f-945aafa1ec5c
  1. Resubmit the simulation a couple of times to create multiple simulations.
> queenbee pollination simulations resubmit -i f01b6926-c953-4b4d-be7f-945aafa1ec5c

  1. Retrieve the logs from the latest ran workflow. The command below will download all logs into the dump/logs/ folder.
> queenbee pollination simulations download -i f01b6926-c953-4b4d-be7f-945aafa1ec5c -f dump -a logs
  1. Retrieve all persisted simulation data to a local folder called sim-data.
> queenbee pollination simulations download -i f01b6926-c953-4b4d-be7f-945aafa1ec5c -f sim-data
  1. Inpect simulation metadata in detail. Get and save the simulation object into a file called dump.json
> queenbee pollination simulations get -i f01b6926-c953-4b4d-be7f-945aafa1ec5c -f dump.json


You can also upload raw files to the Pollination storage bucket. These files will then be accessible to any simulation you run thereafter.


Create a folder called test and place some files in it. You can then upload these files using the following command:

> queenbee pollination artifacts upload -f test

Uploaded test/file1.txt
Uploaded test/file2.txt
Uploaded test/file3.txt


You can list all files within your pollination folder by running the following command:

> queenbee pollination artifacts list

Artifacts can be deleted by using a prefix of exact file key. Here is an exampled to delete all files within a folder called daylight/project_folder/:

> queenbee pollination artifacts delete -p daylight/project_folder

Poof... All gone!
