Scripts to easily organize research

Project description


Washi is a command line interface for organizing scientific research. Yes, there are electronic lab notebooks out there. However, most researchers still end up with a mess of unorganized data files on their computer.

How it works

Washi organizes each experiment your run into the following folder structure:
  • is like a readme. It describes the experiment, maybe has pictures of your lab notebook, etc.
  • The setup/ directory is for everything you do before the experiment (e.g., dilution calculations in excel, import literature references)
  • The data/ directory is for RAW data. That means the raw csv files coming of the your HPLC, spectrometer or whatever you use. This should not be processed.
  • The analysis/ directory is for processed data and the scripts used to get that data.


To create a washi folder structure

washi init
