Like I can just do a subprocess with the CLI args but wasnt sure if anyone had something more fleshed out
to run Nextflow from within Python

no experience with that
that would be a nice research project

yeah I was about to start doing a basic one but trying to avoid reinventing too much stuff
need integration with Django to catch the http log messages then store in a db that I can present in web dashborad
was also thinking about pulling in Celery to do async pipeline running in the background since I just learned thats a thing you can do in Pyhton

I think @sven1103 could be interested in something similar. Putting nextflow weblogs into a database.

oh well I just started an hour ago and the code to put it in a db with django is here: https://github.com/stevekm/nf-dashboard-dj
but others have done basic ones in Flask and other libs, there were some in the original GitHub issue on the http weblog way back

Is there any script syntax where backslash does not need escaping?

can you give an example of the intended use of backslash?
