Remi Rampin and Fernando Chirigati of NYU will be presenting ReproZip at this year's SIGMOD ACM conference. ReproZip enables a researcher to create a compendium of his/her Linux experiment by automatically tracking and identifying all its required dependencies (data files, libraries, configuration files, etc.).
A ReproZip demo has been accepted at SIGMOD 2016: "ReproZip: Computational Reproducibility With Ease." F. Chirigati, R. Rampin, D. Shasha, and J. Freire.
ReproZip was featured in a post on the Library of Congress's digital preservation blog, the Signal. The author, Genevieve Havemeyer-King, writes "ReproZip is a tool being developed at NYU "aimed at simplifying the process of creating reproducible experiments from command-line executions", and could be something to consider as an alternative to many costly web-archiving services for preservation of internet-based projects and applications."
Fernando Chirigati and Remi Rampin's poster "Enhancing Scholarly Communication with ReproZip" was recently accepted at FORCE2016, a conference from FORCE11 a community of scholars, librarians, archivists, publishers and research funders that has arisen organically to help facilitate the change toward improved knowledge creation and sharing.
A new version of ReproZip has been released, adding some bugfixes and options to pass environment variables to the experiment.
This is a demo video showing how to pack and unpack experiments with ReproZip.
