Access Arbor source code
Arbor workflows uses an open development paradigm. To get our source code, or to contribute to the project, please visit our github repository at github.com/arborworkflows.
Under the hood, Arbor uses open-source Kitware products: the workflow engine flow; the data management platform girder; and the web framework tangelo. We also draw liberally from a large number of R packages, and maintain our own, aRbor.
For detailed instructions on installing Arbor on your own machine, go to http://arborworkflows.readthedocs.org/en/latest/installation.html.
