Starting a pipeline

We assume you already have a pipeline file. If the pipeline file is in the current directory then simply run

$ pipeline start <version>

See pipeline start –help for more advanced usecases.

Enqueue downstream pipelines

This command is relevant if the pipeline you have is building inside the pipeline or if you manually want to (re)start downstream pipelines.

See pipeline enqueue –help for parameters.

Building the tool

Make sure you have a Python 3.5 environment with the requirements.

E.g. use pyenv:

$ pyenv virtualenv 3.5.0 pipeline-cli-venv
$ pyenv activate pipeline-cli-venv

Make sure pip is up-to-date:

$ pip install --upgrade pip

Install requirements:

$ pip install --upgrade -r requirements.txt

Build the wheel:

$ make


Use the following command to install the package in the local environment during development.

$ pip install -e .

This allows you to change the code and test the pipeline cli directly.
