Queenbee is a workflow language and a package manager for creating DAG workflows which empowers all workflow libraries in Ladybug Tools!

Project description

Queenbee :crown:

Queenbee is a workflow language for describing workflows! The workflow Schema is inspired by Argo Workflow and borrows a number of terms and expressions from Apache Airflow and Ansible.

Queenbee populates and validates the workflows but does not run them! For running the workflows see ladybug-tools/queenbee-luigi which converts Queenbee workflows to executable Luigi pipelines.

You can find more workflow samples in honeybee-radiance-workflow repository.


> pip install queenbee

or if you want to use the CLI

> pip install queenbee[cli]
