@pditommaso Hi Paolo, Thanks for the great work. We've been prototyping some Docker workflows with Nextflow and really like it. I'd like to integrate it with our http://agaveapi/ platform as an executor to our REST APIs and potentially as an engine behind workflow support we're prototyping now. Where can I go to read up about these areas and is there anyone on the project who would be be interested in collaborating? It could be formal through http://tacc.utexas.edu, http://iplantcollaborative.org, or http://araport.org, or just a pilot side project. I'm open to anything.

@deardooley Hi there, I'm happy that you appreciate the work we did with Nextflow.
What you are proposing is really interesting. Unfortunately there's no low-level technical documentation, we are a small team and we preferred to invest more time in user documentation.

However if you or someone in your team is fluent with Java or groovy shouldn't be too hard to implement a Nextflow executor that integrates Agave REST API
The code in which you should dig a bit reside in the executor package

I would suggest to form the project and starting a pilot project. I can advice you how on Nextflow internals and eventually how modify critical components.
We can discuss about a more formal collaboration at a later stage.
