[HTCondor-users] Branden and Brian - Fwd: PyDagman - a convenience library for writing DAGs

Hi Branden and/or Brian,

Would it be ok if we added links to your htcondor_dag and/or PyDagman project from
On this page we try to provide a catalog of optional and/or 3rd party open source extensions to HTCondor... my help others to more easily find and thus benefit from your work. If you want, we can give you a login to the htcondor-wiki and you can make edits to the pages about your projects directly. Let me know...

Hi Condor Users,
  I'm writing to announce a Python package I've written to simplify the
programmatic creation of DAG files in Python.  The package is called
PyDagman, and is available on github at

The package is born from frustration writing one-off scripts to create
DAG files for the users I support.  We regularly assist users in
creating DAG workflows to their specifications, usually by reading in
parameters from a parameter file and then programmatically buidling the
DAG file using loops and conditionals.  This package takes care of some
of the more annoying aspects, such as string formatting and circular
dependency checking.  We've had good feedback from our user base so far,
so I hope this can help others out there.

It currently supports all possible DAG directives besides CONFIG. If
there's a reason or need for that directive it can certainly be added.

Questions, comments, feature and/or pull requests welcome!
