Project description

signac - simple data management

PyPI conda-forge CircleCI RTD License PyPI-downloads Gitter

The signac framework helps users manage and scale file-based workflows, facilitating data reuse, sharing, and reproducibility.

It provides a simple and robust data model to create a well-defined indexable storage layout for data and metadata. This makes it easier to operate on large data spaces, streamlines post-processing and analysis and makes data collectively accessible.
