resolwe 3.0.0

Open source enterprise dataflow engine in Django

Latest Version: 3.0.1

Resolwe is an open source dataflow package for Django framework. We envision Resolwe to follow the Common Workflow Language specification, but the current implementation does not yet fully support it. Resolwe offers a complete RESTful API to connect with external resources. A collection of bioinformatics pipelines is available in Resolwe Bioinformatics.

Make sure you have Python (2.7 or 3.4+) installed on your system. If you don’t have it yet, follow these instructions.

Resolwe requires PostgreSQL (9.4+). Many Linux distributions already include the required version of PostgreSQL (e.g. Fedora 22+, Debian 8+, Ubuntu 15.04+) and you can simply install it via distribution’s package manager. Otherwise, follow these instructions.

Additionally, installing the psycopg2 dependency from PyPI will require having a C compiler (e.g. GCC) as well as Python and PostgreSQL development files installed on the system.


The preferred way to install the C compiler and Python and PostgreSQL development files is to use your distribution’s packages, if they exist. For example, on a Fedora/RHEL-based system, that would mean installing gcc, python-devel/python3-devel and postgresql-devel packages.

Using PyPI

pip install resolwe

Using source on GitHub

pip install<git-tree-ish>.tar.gz

where <git-tree-ish> can represent any commit SHA, branch name, tag name, etc. in Resolwe’s GitHub repository. For example, to install the latest Resolwe from the master branch, use:

pip install
