Container Tools

Open source, collaborative tools for containers

  • Singularity Hub

    Publicly available cloud service for Singularity Containers. Singularity Hub will build your container recipes from Github repositories on Google Cloud, and containers are available via the command line Singularity or sregistry software.

  • SIF Python

    Python client to interact with Singularity Image Format (SIF) headers, allowing for inspection of header metadata, and partition and signature blocks.

  • Singularity Registry Server

    Deploy a Singularity Registry Server for your Institution. If you want to manage your own version of a Singularity Registry and have the added ability to push directly to it, Singularity Registry Server meets your use case. You can use the registry module in the Global Client package to interact with your Singularity Registry Server.

  • Global Client

    Singularity Container Management for the Individual User. It's easy to pull and build containers and lose track of where everything is. It's also hard to keep up with the number of storage locations for containers. The Global Client provides you with a local database to interact with images, and the multitude of endpoints (Google, Globus, Dropbox) to push/pull from.

  • The Scientific Filesystem

    Containers historically expose one entry point, and if we provide several applications in a container we need more, and we need to have internal modularity, meaning that our applications are clearly distinguished from the container base operating system. SCIF is a specification for a filesystem organization, an environment variable namespace, and client for application discovery.

  • Experiment Factory

    The Experiment Factory, containers for reproducible behavioral science. The experiment Factory will allow you to package your behavioral experiments in a reproducible container, supporting multiple database and experiment types, so that the container you use to collect your data is the same as the one that you share and publish.

  • The Builders

    Cloud builders from Github for Singularity containers. The Builders are a library of build configurations that plug into the Global Client to deploy a cloud build. The default configuration deploys a build on Google Compute, and saves in Google Storage.

  • Singularity Python

    Python Client for Singularity Command Line Software. Spython is the python client to wrap Singularity, providing the core commands along with a recipe converter.

  • Tunel Interface

    Interface for Singularity Container Management. Tunel is a Dockerized application that gives interactive management for a local Global Client database with Singularity images. It includes integration with Globus, along with a recipe generator, builder, and easy means to pull images from Singularity Hub, Docker Hub, and Nvidia Container Registry.
