Sumatra: automated tracking of scientific computations
Sumatra is a tool for managing and tracking projects based on numerical
simulation and/or analysis, with the aim of supporting reproducible research.
It can be thought of as an automated electronic lab notebook for computational
It consists of:
- a command-line interface, smt, for launching simulations/analyses with
automatic recording of information about the experiment, annotating these
records, linking to data files, etc.
- a web interface with a built-in web-server, smtweb, for browsing and
annotating simulation/analysis results.
- a LaTeX package and Sphinx extension for including Sumatra-tracked figures and
links to provenance information in papers and other documents.
- a Python API, on which smt and smtweb are based, that can be used in your own
scripts in place of using smt, or could be integrated into a GUI-based
