A better way to configure and run things that usually go into shell scripts

Project description

# ScriptEngine

The main purpose of ScriptEngine is to replace shell scripts. ScriptEngine tries to put the user’s focus on the description of common shell script tasks, rather than their implementation. Ideally, the description of a complex task should be nearly as short and clear as the description of a simpler one.

The ScriptEngine concept separates scripts (what to do) from the implementation of tasks (how to do things), and the actual execution environment (the script engine instances). This allows different execution models to be implemented. A simple script engine instance may execute tasks from a script as a simple sequential list, which is, in fact, the default behaviour in ScriptEngine. However, it is rather easy, within the ScriptEngine concept, to implement more advanced script engine instances, such as one that executes tasks in parallel or sends tasks to batch systems.

Since ScriptEngine tasks are basically Python class methods, there is a wide range of tools available to get the actual work done, which allows for a more efficient implementation of tasks.
