WHAT IS PYQI?

       pyqi  (canonically pronounced pie chee) is a Python framework designed to support wrapping
       general commands in multiple types of interfaces, including at the command line, HTML, and
       API levels.

       pyqi's only requirement is a working Python 2.7 or 3.3 installation.

WHY SHOULD I CARE?

       pyqi  allows  you  to  write your command once, and easily make it accessible to different
       types of users through different types of interfaces. In the context of pyqi, a command is
       a  class  that  takes  some  inputs, performs some function, and produces some outputs. An
       interface is a light wrapper around that command that makes it accessible to users.

       After defining and testing your command, you can configure different types of  interfaces.
       This  enables,  for  example, basic users to access your command through an HTML interface
       running on a local server, power or cluster users to access your command through a command
       line  interface,  and  developers to access your command through an application programmer
       interface (API). Because pyqi's interfaces  are  light  wrappers  around  your  underlying
       command,  users  of  each  of these interfaces will be guaranteed to be accessing the same
       underlying functionality.

       pyqi is currently in the early stages of development, and there is a lot to be done. We're
       very  interested  in having beta users, and we fully embrace collaborative development, so
       if you're interested in using or developing pyqi, you should get in touch.

HOW DO I START USING PYQI?

       First, install pyqi (it's easy) by following our install instructions. Then, you can start
       working  through  our  tutorials,  which  are designed to help you evaluate the utility of
       pyqi, and then integrate pyqi into your project.

       The Getting Started series of tutorials progress linearly through how to  stub  and  build
       new commands and how to stub and build new interfaces. These will give you an idea of what
       pyqi is capable of and how it works.

       The using-pyqi-in-your-project series of tutorials will then give you an idea of  how  you
       could  integrate pyqi into your project. This includes suggestions on how to organize your
       project's repository to look like other repositories that make use of  pyqi,  and  how  to
       define  a  driver script (similar to the pyqi command which you'll become familiar with in
       the Getting Started tutorials) that will give your users access to the  commands  in  your
       project.

       As  the  pyqi  project  matures,  we'll  include  additional  documentation  for  advanced
       developers, who are interested in things like defining new interface types (though this is
       not something that is ever required for most developers).

HOW DO I GET HELP WITH PYQI?

       For now, please direct questions to gregcaporaso@gmail.com. Please report bugs and feature
       requests on the pyqi issue tracker.

CAN I HELP DEVELOP PYQI?

       Yes! pyqi is open source software, available under the BSD license.  All  source  code  is
       hosted in the pyqi GitHub repository.

       Development  is  primarily  occurring  in  the  Caporaso Lab (Northern Arizona University;
       Argonne National Laboratories) and Knight Lab   (University  of  Colorado;  Howard  Hughes
       Medical  Institute),  but  the  goal  is for pyqi to be a very open development effort. We
       accept code submissions as pull requests.
