Container builder serviceΒΆ

The container builder service in idmtools uses the SingularityBuildWorkItem class, which can use as input a .def (Singularity container defiinition) file (the instructions or blueprint for building the container - .sif file), and then writes it to an asset collection id file to be available as part of an asset collection on COMPS. You can then use the built container for running simulations on COMPS.

For more information about Singularity builds on COMPS, see Singularity Build.
