submit jobs to slurm with python

Project description

quick and dirty lib for submitting jobs to slurm via python2/python3.

from slurmpy import Slurm

s = Slurm("job-name", {"account": "my-account", "partition": "my-parition"})"""


The above will submit the job to `sbatch` automatically write the script to `scripts/`
and automatically write logs/{name}.err and logs/{name}.out. It will have today's
date in the log and script names.

The script to run() can also contain `$variables` which are filled with the cmd_kwarg dict.
E.g. `echo $name` could be filled with `cmd_kwargs={'name': 'sally'}`

A command can be tested (not sent to queue) by setting the `_cmd` are to `run` as e.g. "ls".
The default is `sbatch` which submits jobs to slurm.


Each time `slurmpy.Slurm().run()` is called, it returns the job-id of the submitted job. This
can then be sent to a subsequent job:
s = Slurmp(), depends_on=[job_id])

to indicate that this job should not run until the the job with `job_id` has finished successfully.


pip install slurmpy --user
