Basic functions

Pypiper is simple, but powerful. You only need 3 functions to get started. PipelineManager can do:

start_pipeline
run
stop_pipeline

With that you can create a simple pipeline. You can click on each function to view the in-depth documentation for that function. There are quite a few optional parameters to the run function, which is where most of Pypiper’s power comes from

When you’ve mastered the basics and are ready to get more powerful, add in a few new (optional) commands that make debugging and development easier:

timestamp
report_result
clean_add
get_stat

The complete documentation for these functions can be found in the API.
