WfCommons is available on PyPI. WfCommons requires Python3.6+ and has been tested on Linux and macOS.
WfCommons uses pygraphviz and thus needs the graphviz package installed (version 2.16 or later). You can install graphviz easily on Linux with your favorite package manager, for example for Debian-based distributions:
$ sudo apt-get install graphviz libgraphviz-dev
and for RedHat-based distributions:
$ sudo yum install python-devel graphviz-devel
On macOS you can use the
brew package manager:
$ brew install graphviz
Installation using pip¶
pip can be used to install WfCommons, we suggest the following
approach for reliable installation when many Python environments are available:
$ python3 -m pip install workflowhub
Retrieving the latest unstable version¶
If you want to use the latest WfCommons unstable version, that will contain brand new features (but also contain bugs as the stabilization work is still underway), you may consider retrieving the latest unstable version.
Cloning from WfCommons’s GitHub repository:
$ git clone https://github.com/wfcommons/wfcommons $ cd wfcommons $ pip install .
