__dir__()[source]

Default dir() implementation.

__getitem__(item)[source]
__init__(port_namespace)[source]

Dynamically construct the get and set properties for the ports of the given port namespace.

For each port in the given port namespace a get and set property will be constructed dynamically and added to the ProcessBuilderNamespace. The docstring for these properties will be defined by calling str() on the Port, which should return the description of the Port.

Parameters

port_namespace (str) – the inputs PortNamespace for which to construct the builder

__iter__()[source]
__len__()[source]
__module__ = 'aiida.engine.processes.builder'
__repr__()[source]

Return repr(self).

__setattr__(attr, value)[source]

Assign the given value to the port with key attr.

Note

Any attributes without a leading underscore being set correspond to inputs and should hence be validated with respect to the corresponding input port from the process spec

Parameters
  • attr (str) – attribute

  • value – value

__setitem__(item, value)[source]
__weakref__

list of weak references to the object (if defined)

_abc_impl = <_abc_data object>
_inputs(prune=False)[source]

Return the entire mapping of inputs specified for this builder.

Parameters

prune – boolean, when True, will prune nested namespaces that contain no actual values whatsoever

Returns

mapping of inputs ports and their input values.

_prune(value)[source]

Prune a nested mapping from all mappings that are completely empty.

Note

a nested mapping that is completely empty means it contains at most other empty mappings. Other null values, such as None or empty lists, should not be pruned.

Parameters

value – a nested mapping of port values

Returns

the same mapping but without any nested namespace that is completely empty.

_update(*args, **kwds)[source]

Update the values of the builder namespace passing a mapping as argument or individual keyword value pairs.

The method is prefixed with an underscore in order to not reserve the name for a potential port, but in principle the method functions just as collections.abc.MutableMapping.update.

Parameters
  • args (list) – a single mapping that should be mapped on the namespace

  • kwds (dict) – keyword value pairs that should be mapped onto the ports

Create a process node that represents what happened in this process.

Returns

A process node

Return type

aiida.orm.ProcessNode

property process_class

Return the class that represents this Process, for the FunctionProcess this is the function itself.

For a standard Process or sub class of Process, this is the class itself. However, for legacy reasons, the Process class is a wrapper around another class. This function returns that original class, i.e. the class that really represents what was being executed.

Returns

Return type

FunctionProcess

run()[source]

Run the process.

Return type

aiida.engine.ExitCode

classmethod validate_inputs(*args, **kwargs)[source]

class aiida.engine.processes.PortNamespace(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Bases: aiida.engine.processes.ports.WithNonDb, plumpy.ports.PortNamespace

Sub class of plumpy.PortNamespace which implements the serialize method to support automatic recursive serialization of a given mapping onto the ports of the PortNamespace.

__abstractmethods__ = frozenset({})
__module__ = 'aiida.engine.processes.ports'
__setitem__(key, port)[source]

Ensure that a Port being added inherits the non_db attribute if not explicitly defined at construction.

The reasoning is that if a PortNamespace has non_db=True, which is different from the default value, very often all leaves should be also non_db=True. To prevent a user from having to specify it manually everytime we overload the value here, unless it was specifically set during construction.

Note that the non_db attribute is not present for all Port sub classes so we have to check for it first.

_abc_impl = <_abc_data object>
serialize(mapping, breadcrumbs=())[source]

Serialize the given mapping onto this Portnamespace.

It will recursively call this function on any nested PortNamespace or the serialize function on any Ports.

Valid link labels adhere to the following restrictions:

  • Has to be a valid python identifier

  • Can only contain alphanumeric characters and underscores

  • Can not start or end with an underscore

Parameters

port_name – the proposed name of the port to be added

Raises
  • TypeError – if the port name is not a string type

  • ValueError – if the port name is invalid

class aiida.engine.processes.WorkChain(inputs=None, logger=None, runner=None, enable_persistence=True)[source]

Bases: aiida.engine.processes.process.Process

The WorkChain class is the principle component to implement workflows in AiiDA.

_CONTEXT = 'CONTEXT'
_Process__called = True
_STEPPER_STATE = 'stepper_state'
__abstractmethods__ = frozenset({})
__init__(inputs=None, logger=None, runner=None, enable_persistence=True)[source]

Construct a WorkChain instance.

Construct the instance only if it is a sub class of WorkChain, otherwise raise InvalidOperation.

Parameters
  • inputs (dict) – work chain inputs

  • logger (logging.Logger) – aiida logger

  • runner – work chain runner

  • enable_persistence (bool) – whether to persist this work chain

Type

aiida.engine.runners.Runner

__module__ = 'aiida.engine.processes.workchains.workchain'
_abc_impl = <_abc_data object>
_auto_persist = {'_CREATION_TIME', '_awaitables', '_enable_persistence', '_future', '_parent_pid', '_paused', '_pid', '_pre_paused_status', '_status'}
_do_step()[source]

Execute the next step in the outline and return the result.

If the stepper returns a non-finished status and the return value is of type ToContext, the contents of the ToContext container will be turned into awaitables if necessary. If any awaitables were created, the process will enter in the Wait state, otherwise it will go to Continue. When the stepper returns that it is done, the stepper result will be converted to None and returned, unless it is an integer or instance of ExitCode.

Set the process status with a message accounting the current sub processes that we are waiting for.

action_awaitables()[source]

Handle the awaitables that are currently registered with the work chain

Depending on the class type of the awaitable’s target a different callback function will be bound with the awaitable and the runner will be asked to call it when the target is completed

Returns

the same mapping but without any nested namespace that is completely empty.

_update(*args, **kwds)[source]

__abstractmethods__ = frozenset({})
__module__ = 'aiida.engine.processes.ports'
__setitem__(key, port)[source]

Ensure that a Port being added inherits the non_db attribute if not explicitly defined at construction.

The reasoning is that if a PortNamespace has non_db=True, which is different from the default value, very often all leaves should be also non_db=True. To prevent a user from having to specify it manually everytime we overload the value here, unless it was specifically set during construction.

Note that the non_db attribute is not present for all Port sub classes so we have to check for it first.

When overriding this method, make sure to call super().is_valid_cache(node) and respect its output. Otherwise, the ‘invalidates_cache’ keyword on exit codes will not work.

This method allows extending the behavior of ProcessNode.is_valid_cache from Process sub-classes, for example in plug-ins.

on_create()[source]

Called when a Process is created.

on_entered(from_state)[source]
on_entering(state)[source]
on_except(exc_info)[source]

Log the exception by calling the report method with formatted stack trace from exception info object and store the exception string as a node attribute

Parameters

exc_info – the sys.exc_info() object (type, value, traceback)

on_finish(result, successful)[source]

Set the finish status on the process node.

Parameters
  • result (int or aiida.engine.ExitCode) – result of the process

  • successful (bool) – whether execution was successful

on_output_emitting(output_port, value)[source]

The process has emitted a value on the given output port.

Parameters
  • output_port (str) – The output port name the value was emitted on

  • value – The value emitted

on_paused(msg=None)[source]

The Process was paused so set the paused attribute on the process node

Parameters

msg (str) – message

on_playing()[source]

The Process was unpaused so remove the paused attribute on the process node

The name of the port will be used as the link label.

Parameters
  • output_port (str) – name of output port

  • value – value to put inside output port

out_many(out_dict)[source]

Keys of the dictionary will be used as output port names, values as outputs.

Parameters

out_dict (dict) – output dictionary

report(msg, *args, **kwargs)[source]

Log a message to the logger, which should get saved to the database through the attached DbLogHandler.

The pk, class name and function name of the caller are prepended to the given message

Parameters
  • msg (str) – message to log

  • args (list) – args to pass to the log call

save_instance_state(out_state, save_context)[source]

Save instance state.

See documentation of plumpy.processes.Process.save_instance_state().

set_status(status)[source]

The status of the Process is about to be changed, so we reflect this is in node’s attribute proxy.

Parameters

status (str) – the status message

spec_metadata = <aiida.engine.processes.ports.PortNamespace object>
submit(process, *args, **kwargs)[source]

Submit process for execution.

Parameters

process (aiida.engine.Process) – process

update_node_state(state)[source]
update_outputs()[source]

Attach new outputs to the node since the last call.

Does nothing, if self.metadata.store_provenance is False.

property uuid

Return the UUID of the process which corresponds to the UUID of its associated ProcessNode.

Returns

the UUID associated to this process instance
