Workflow Storage, Discovery, Revision Control, and Deployment

Cylc does not have a built-in solution for workflow storage and discovery, revision control, and deployment, on a network.

Version control is not Cylc’s core purpose, and projects may have their own preferences and workflow meta-data requirements that are difficult to anticipate. We can, however, recommend the use of the Rosie system which comes as a part of Rose to do all of this very easily and elegantly with Cylc workflows.


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