@pditommaso Yes, that would be a better way than confining to only parameters through command line - upstream to the nextflow - we can have a json validator or even validator inside the nextflow process itself - before starting processing - as json and yaml standards.. I will be happy to contribute, if you let me know what would be the best way to proceed from here..
just starting to tinker around with nextflow after getting fed up with make. trivial question - what syntax highlighter do you recommend for a text editor? You don't happen to have a sublime text bundle do you?
