14. Suite Storage, Discovery, Revision Control, and Deployment

Small groups of cylc users can of course share suites by manual copying, and generic revision control tools can be used on cylc suites as for any collection of files. Beyond this cylc does not have a built-in solution for suite storage and discovery, revision control, and deployment, on a network. That is not cylc’s core purpose, and large sites may have preferred revision control systems and suite meta-data requirements that are difficult to anticipate. We can, however, recommend the use of Rose to do all of this very easily and elegantly with cylc suites.

14.1. Rose

Rose is a framework for managing and running suites of scientific applications, developed at the Met Office for use with cylc. It is available under the open source GPL license.
