class parsl.channels.LocalChannel(userhome='.', envs={}, script_dir=None)[source]

This is not even really a channel, since opening a local shell is not heavy and done so infrequently that they do not need a persistent channel

__init__(userhome='.', envs={}, script_dir=None)[source]

Initialize the local channel. script_dir is required by set to a default.

  • userhome (string): (default=’.’) This is provided as a way to override and set a specific userhome

  • envs (dict) : A dictionary of env variables to be set when launching the shell

  • script_dir (string): Directory to place scripts


__init__([userhome, envs, script_dir])

Initialize the local channel.


Return the absolute path.


There’s nothing to close here, and this really doesn’t do anything

execute_wait(cmd[, walltime, envs])

Synchronously execute a commandline string on the shell.


Return true if the path refers to an existing directory.

makedirs(path[, mode, exist_ok])

Create a directory.

pull_file(remote_source, local_dir)

Transport file on the remote side to a local directory

push_file(source, dest_dir)

If the source files dirpath is the same as dest_dir, a copy is not necessary, and nothing is done.



This is a property.
