Sciunit: a system for easily containerizing, sharing, and tracking scientific applications
Sciunits are efficient, lightweight, self-contained packages of computational experiments that can be guaranteed to repeat or reproduce regardless of deployment issues. Sciunit answers the call for a reusable research object that containerizes and stores applications simply and efficiently, facilitates sharing and collaboration, and eases the task of executing, understanding, and building on shared work.
To create sciunits, install our Linux command-line tool.
