  • doit

    task management & automation tool

  • Project mention: How do you deal with CI, project config, etc. falling out of sync across repos? | /r/ExperiencedDevs | 2023-12-06

    I like mage for Go and doit for Python.

  • couler

    Unified Interface for Constructing and Managing Workflows on different workflow engines, such as Argo Workflows, Tekton Pipelines, and Apache Airflow.

  • Project mention: (Not) to Write a Pipeline | | 2023-06-27

    author seems to be describing the kind of patterns you might make with . or see for example , which is an sdk for describing tasks that may be submitted to different workflow engines on the backend.

    it's a little confusing to me that the author seems to object to "pipelines" and then equate them with messaging-queues. for me at least, "pipeline" vs "workflow-engine" vs "scheduler" are all basically synonyms in this context. those things may or may not be implemented with a message-queue for persistence, but the persistence layer itself is usually below the level of abstraction that $current_problem is really concerned with. like the author says, eventually you have to track state/timestamps/logs, but you get that from the beginning if you start with a workflow engine.

    i agree with author that message-queues should not be a knee-jerk response to most problems because the LoE for edge-cases/observability/monitoring is huge. (maybe reach for a queue only if you may actually overwhelm whatever the "scheduler" can handle.) but don't build the scheduler from scratch either.. use argowf, kubeflow, or a more opinionated framework like airflow, mlflow, databricks, aws lamda or step-functions. all/any of these should have config or api that's robust enough to express rate-limit/retry stuff. almost any of these choices has better observability out-of-the-box than you can easily get from a queue. but most importantly.. they provide idioms for handling failure that data-science folks and junior devs can work with. the right way to structure code is just much more clear and things like structuring messages/events, subclassing workers, repeating/retrying tasks, is just harder to mess up.

  • covalent

    Pythonic tool for orchestrating machine-learning/high performance/quantum-computing workflows in heterogeneous compute environments. (by AgnostiqHQ)

  • Project mention: Remote execution of code | /r/Python | 2023-12-05

    Pretty interesting request, if SSH is not used, i would try using something like dask which uses tcp to connect and execute assuming your workers are in another machine.I also think something like covalent can be used to extend your own custom plugin in their ecosystem to connect how you want. We have a very custom private plugin written on top of covalent's to have a custom protocol to connect our central on-prem GPU machines to our local laptops that is rpc based, mostly for high performance as well as some mandate security from where the GPU machines are. Once done it is pretty much something like

  • hera

    Hera is an Argo Python SDK. Hera aims to make construction and submission of various Argo Project resources easy and accessible to everyone! Hera abstracts away low-level setup details while still maintaining a consistent vocabulary with Argo. ⭐️ Remember to star!
