run [--direct][--wait][--no-sync][--tier][--local] <file> [args…]
"run" will copy all files in your project folder to the cloud, where it will execute the specified file with any arguments you have specified, unless you have specified the
domino sync before
domino run <script> if receiving an error like “blob file not found”
--wait flag runs your script synchronously, that is, the command does not return until your job finishes.
--direct flag lets you run a shell command directly on the Domino machines.
--no-sync flag runs the latest version of code on the server, without uploading any local changes on your computer.
--tier flag lets you select a specific hardware tier to execute the specified file on.
--local flag lets you run your script on your local machine.
--title flag lets you supply a title for the run.
Local runs are useful if your desired compute environment is not immediately available, but you would like to record your results in Domino.
When a local run is invoked, Domino commits a snapshot of project files to the server and then runs the given command (for example,
python main.py) on the local machine.
When the command has completed, Domino detects results that have been produced and commits those back to the server, tracking them as “results” of the run as though the command ran on the server.
Viewing the “Results” for Run #16 will bring up a page showing the output of the
main.py where colleagues can view and discuss the output.
domino run calculateStats.R domino run runModel.m model1 .05 domino run --wait runModel.m model1 .05 domino run --direct "pip freeze | grep pandas" domino run --tier "Large" calculateStats.R domino run --local "python main.py"
Create a new project
create will create a new project by making a new folder on your computer and telling the Domino server about your new project.
Optionally, you can specify the name of the project.
If you don’t specify a name, Domino will ask you for one.
To create a project on behalf of an organization you belong to, use the
domino create domino create myProject domino create --owner myOrg myProject
Create a project in a directory that already has files
init will create a new Domino project inside your current folder.
This is useful if you already have a working folder and you’d like to convert it to a Domino project.
While the "create" command creates a new folder inside your current directory,
init will initialize a project from your current folder.
--owner flag can be used to set an organization you belong to as the project owner.
domino init domino init myProject domino init --owner myOrg myProject
Get a project from the server onto your computer for the first time
get will find an existing project on the server and copy it down to your computer.
This is useful to get a project you created on a different computer, or to get a project that someone else created, and you are collaborating on.
If you are getting someone else’s project, specify their username and the project name. If you are getting one of your own projects, you can omit the username.
domino get otherUser/someProject domino get myProject
Connect a folder to an existing project
connect your current directory to an existing Domino project on the server.
Restore will look for evidence of a project name inside
If it doesn’t find such a file, it will prompt you for the name of an existing project to use.
This is particularly useful if you are using Domino and git to track the same folder.
If you clone a project with git, git will likely have ignored the hidden files that identify it has a Domino project.
So you can
git clone and then
domino restore to re-connect the folder to its Domino project.
Download the latest version of your files
download will download the latest copy of your files from the cloud into your current project folder.
If you have made changes that conflict with changes in the cloud, you will see both versions of the conflicting file side-by-side.
There are two reasons files in the cloud might change: first, your collaborators on a project might make changes; second, you might have executed a run that produced new output files.
Upload your files without starting a run
upload [-m "message"]
upload will upload your current project folder contents to the cloud, but will not begin a new run.
The optional message flag lets you record a message, which will be displayed when browsing past commits on the
tab of your project.
domino upload -m "this is a great message"
Upload folder to a Dataset
Upload all the files in a folder from your local machine to an existing Dataset.
Existing files will be overwritten unless you use the
domino upload-dataset <project-owner>/<project-name>/<dataset-name> <folder path>
domino upload-dataset --fileUploadSetting Overwrite jsmith/global-predictions/global-data /Users/myUser/data
--fileUploadSetting option to handle path collisions as follows:
Ignore: If a file already exists in the Dataset, the new file is ignored.
Overwrite: If a file already exists in the Dataset, the new file overwrites the existing file.
Rename: If a file already exists in the Dataset,
_1is appended to the uploaded filename. For example,
Here is the full syntax where
--fileUploadSetting and the corresponding parameter are optional:
domino upload-dataset --fileUploadSetting Ignore/Overwrite/Rename <project-owner>/<project-name>/<dataset-name> <folder path>
help will print out a list of commands you can run, with information about each one, similar to this page.
