This is our attempt to share automation actions from scientific research projects as unified Python modules with a common CLI and Python API to help researchers and practitioners reuse best practices. Our on-going project is to make the onboarding process as simple as possible via this platform. Please check this CK white paper and don't hesitate to contact us if you have suggestions or feedback!
