Welcome to gluetool’s documentation!¶
Gluetool 1.3 (1.3)
gluetool command-line tool is an automation tool constructing a sequential pipeline on the command-line. It is able to implement any sequential process when it’s divided into modules with minimal interaction between them, gluing them together on the command-line to form a pipeline. It is implemented as an open gluetool framework.
The cool thing about having the pipeline on the command-line is that it can be easily copy-pasted to your local shell for debugging/development, and such pipeline can be easily customized by changing options of the modules when needed.
The tool optionally integrates with Sentry.io error logging platform for reporting issues, very useful when running
gluetool pipelines at larger scales.
