Allows simple job submission with dependency tracking and queue waiting on either torque, slurm, or locally with the multiprocessing module. It uses simple techniques to avoid overwhelming the queue and to catch bugs on the fly.

It is routinely tested on Mac OS and Linux with slurm and torque clusters, or in the absence of a cluster, on Python versions 2.7.10, 2.7.11, 2.7.12, 3.3.0, 3.4.0, 3.5.2, 3.6.2, and 3.7-dev. The full test suite is available in the tests folder.

Fyrd is pronounced ‘feared’ (sort of), it is an Anglo-Saxon term for an army, particularly an army of freemen (in this case an army of compute nodes). The logo is based on a Saxon shield commonly used by these groups. This software was formerly known as ‘Python Cluster’.
