De jflow Wiki.



Today biologists produce large data sets and are in demand of rich and simple to use WEB portals in which they can upload and analyse their files. Providing such tools requires to mask the complexity induced by the needed High Perfomance Computing (HPC) environment. The connexion between interface and computing infrastructure is usually specific to each portal. We introduce jflow, a Workflow Management System (WMS), composed of Jquery plugins which can easily be embedded in any WEB application and a Python library providing all requested features to setup, run and monitor workflows.

Jflow is available under the GNU General Public License (GPL). The package is comming with a full documentation a quickstart and a running test portal.


You can find a tarball of different version of jflow here. The tarball includes documentation and examples.

Add existing workflow

Some workflows have been developped and are available in jflow-toolshed. Follow the instructions to add a new workflow.

Announcing ...

  • jflow v.1.1 - Jflow is now Python 3 compliant.
  • jflow v.1.0 - Here is the first packaged version of the tool.
  • Check out the poster that we presented at the 2013 JOBIM conference in Toulouse, which describes jflow.
