schrodinger.tasks.tasks module

A task represents a block of work that has a defined input and output and runs without user intervention. Different task classes share a common external API but have different implementations for defining and executing the work, such as blocking calls, threads, subprocesses, or job control (see jobtasks).

To define a task, follow these basic instructions:

1. Choose a task class to subclass. The choice of task class is primarily dictated by how the task needs to run - thread, subprocess, job, etc. See the Task Class Selection Guide for help.

2. Override the input and output params. The task.input and task.output params may be of any Param type, including CompoundParam (typical). For CompoundParams, either use an existing class to override task.input, OR define a nested class named Input within the task. Doing so will automatically override task.input. The same goes for task.output. Example:

class FooTask(tasks.ThreadFunctionTask):
    input = AtomPair()  # AtomPair is an existing CompoundParam subclass

    # This will magically override FooTask.output = Output()
    class Output(parameters.CompoundParam):
        charge: float
        processed_atom_pair: AtomPair

3. Define the work of the task. This is done differently for different task classes, but generally involves overriding a method to either provide python logic directly as the work to be done or to construct a command line with the appropriate arguments that will be invoked via the appropriate mechanism for the task type.

Once a task is defined, it can be instantiated, set up, and started:

task = FooThreadTask()
task.input.x = 3
task.input.y = 4
task.start()
assert task.status is tasks.Status.RUNNING
task.wait()
assert task.status is tasks.Status.DONE
print(task.output)

Warning

wait() executes a local event loop, so it should not be called directly from a GUI - see PANEL-18317 for discussion. wait() is safe to call inside a subprocess or job (e.g. if a jobtask spawns child tasks). Run git grep "task[.]wait(" to see safe examples annotated with “# OK”.

Pre/postprocessors

Tasks support pre/post processing functions. These can either be methods in the class that are decorated with the preprocessor or postprocessor decorators, or external functions that are added to a task instance. Example:

class MyTask(tasks.BlockingFunctionTask):
    @tasks.preprocessor
    def checkInput(self):
        if self.input.x <0:
            return False, 'x must be a nonnegative number.'

For more information, see the module-level preprocessor and postprocessor decorators as well as the start(), preprocessors(), and addPreprocessor() methods of AbstractTask.

Task directory (taskdir)

Tasks have a concept of a taskdir. While the task framework will never actually chdir into a different directory, the task provides functions for specifying and accessing a directory that is considered that task’s directory by convention. Subprocesses started by the task will use the taskdir as their working directory.

To specify a taskdir, override AbstractTask.DEFAULT_TASKDIR_SETTING or use task.specifyTaskDir(). Example:

class MyTask(tasks.BlockingFunctionTask):
    DEFAULT_TASKDIR_SETTING = tasks.AUTO_TASKDIR

task = MyTask()
task.specifyTaskDir('foo_dir')

The taskdir is created during preprocessing. Once the taskdir is created, use task.getTaskDir() and task.getTaskFilename() when reading and writing files for the task. Example:

class MyTask(tasks.SubprocessCmdTask):
    @tasks.preprocessor(order=tasks.AFTER_TASKDIR)
    def writeInputFiles(self):
        with open(self.getTaskFilename('foo_data.txt'), 'w') as f:
            f.write(self.input.foo_data)

For more details on taskdir, see task.specifyTaskDir() task.getTaskDir().

Input/Output File Handling

To specify a task input file or folder, use the TaskFile or TaskFolder classes as a subparam on the task.input param. If the task runs its unit of work on a different machine or process, the input files/folders will automatically be copied to the right location on the compute host. The path to the TaskFile/TaskFolder will also be updated so it points to the right location, regardless of when or where it’s accessed.

TaskFile/TaskFolder`s may be nested under the input param in supported container types. Supported container types are: There are few restrictions on how nested you can define your `TaskFile/TaskFolder on the input param. For example, if you have a variable number of input files, you can define the input with a list:

- List
- Dict
- Set
- Tuple
- CompoundParam

For example:

class Input(parameters.CompoundParam):
    receptor_filename: TaskFile
    ligand_filenames: List[TaskFile]

Task output files/folders behave in the exact same way as task input files/folders except they’re defined as TaskFile or TaskFolder on the output param.

class schrodinger.tasks.tasks.TaskDirSetting(value)

Bases: enum.Enum

An enumeration.

AUTO_TASKDIR = 1
TEMP_TASKDIR = 2
schrodinger.tasks.tasks.NUM_TRACEBACK_LINES = 10

The preprocessor and post processor decorators can be used to mark functions to be run before/after a task. These decorators may be used on task methods both with or without args:

class MyTask(tasks.BlockingFunctionTask):

    @tasks.preprocessor  # Use without args
    def checkInput(self):
        pass

    @tasks.preprocessor(order=tasks.AFTER_TASKDIR)  # Use with args
    def writeInput(self):
        pass

The optional order argument is a float that is used as a sorting key to determine the order of execution of pre/postprocessors. It’s recommended that one of the module level ordering constants is used, with +/- increments to fine- tune the order. For example:

class MyTask(tasks.BlockingFunctionTask):

    @tasks.preprocessor(order=tasks.AFTER_TASKDIR)
    def checkInput(self):
        pass

    def writeInput(self, order=tasks.AFTER_TASKDIR+1):
        pass

External functions may also be decorated. In this case, the function must also be added to a task instance. Example:

@tasks.preprocessor(order=tasks.AFTER_TASKDIR)
def foo()
    pass

task = MyTask()
task.addPreprocessor(foo)

Pre/postprocessors may optionally return a ProcessingResult. As a convenience, a (passed, message) tuple return value will automatically be cast into a ProcessingResult by the decorator. Examples:

@tasks.preprocessor
def checkInput(self):
    if self.input.x < 0:  # Preprocessing failure
        return False, 'x must be nonnegative.'

    if self.input.x > 100:  # Preprocessing warning
        return True, 'Large values of x may take a long time.'

    return True  # Pass (equivalent to returning None)

Returning False without a message will be a silent failure.

class schrodinger.tasks.tasks.ProcessingResult(passed, message=None)

Bases: object

A general-purpose return value for task pre/post processors

__init__(passed, message=None)
Parameters
  • passed (bool) – Whether the result is considered to be passing

  • message (str) – A message for this result

exception schrodinger.tasks.tasks.TaskFailure

Bases: Exception

Exception raised when a task fails for reasons other than an unexpected error occuring during execution.

__init__(*args, **kwargs)
args
with_traceback()

Exception.with_traceback(tb) – set self.__traceback__ to tb and return self.

exception schrodinger.tasks.tasks.TaskKilled

class schrodinger.tasks.tasks.FailureInfo(*args, _param_type=<object object>, **kwargs)

Bases: schrodinger.models.parameters.CompoundParam

Dataclass for task failure information.

Printing an instance of this class will provide the minimum necessary human-readable representation of a recorded failure.

exception_class_name: str

Base class for all Param classes. A Param is a descriptor for storing data, which means that a single Param instance will manage the data values for multiple instances of the class that owns it. Example:

class Coord(CompoundParam):
    x: int
    y: int

An instance of the Coord class can be created normally, and Params can be accessed as normal attributes:

coord = Coord()
coord.x = 4

When a Param value is set, the valueChanged signal is emitted. Params can be serialized and deserialized to and from JSON. Params can also be nested:

class Atom(CompoundParam):
    coord: Coord
    element: str
message: str

Base class for all Param classes. A Param is a descriptor for storing data, which means that a single Param instance will manage the data values for multiple instances of the class that owns it. Example:

class Coord(CompoundParam):
    x: int
    y: int

An instance of the Coord class can be created normally, and Params can be accessed as normal attributes:

coord = Coord()
coord.x = 4

When a Param value is set, the valueChanged signal is emitted. Params can be serialized and deserialized to and from JSON. Params can also be nested:

class Atom(CompoundParam):
    coord: Coord
    element: str
traceback_str: str

INTERRUPT_ENABLED = False
run()
kill()

Implementations are responsible for immediately stopping the task. No threads or processes should be running after this method is complete.

This method should be called sparingly since in many contexts the task will be forced to terminate without a chance to clean up or free resources.

start(skip_preprocessing=False)

This is the main method for starting a task. Start will check if a task is not already running, run preprocessing, and then run the task.

Failures in preprocessing will interrupt the task start, and the task will never enter the RUNNING state.

Parameters

skip_preprocessing (bool) – whether to skip preprocessing. This can be useful if preprocessing was already performed prior to calling start.

wait(timeout=None)

Block until the task is finished executing or timeout seconds have passed.

Warning

This should not be called directly from GUI code - see PANEL-18317. It is safe to call inside a subprocess or job. Run git grep "task.wait(" to see safe examples annotated with “# OK”.

Parameters

timeout (NoneType or int) – Amount of time in seconds to wait before timing out. If None or a negative number, this method will wait until the task is finished.

isRunning()
isStartable()
specifyTaskDir(taskdir_spec)

Specify the taskdir creation behavior. Use one of the following options:

A directory name (string). This may be a relative or absolute path

None - no taskdir is requested. The task will use the CWD as its taskdir

AUTO_TASKDIR - a new subdirectory will be created in the CWD using the task name as the directory name.

TEMP_TASKDIR - a temporary directory will be created in the schrodinger temp dir. This directory is cleaned up when the task is deleted.

Parameters

taskdir_spec – one of the four options listed above

taskDirSetting()

Returns the taskdir spec. See specifyTaskDir() for details.

getTaskDir()

Returns the full path of the task directory. This is only available if the task directory exists (after creation of the taskdir or, if no task dir is specified, any time).

getTaskFilename(fname)

Return the appropriate absolute path for an input or output file in the taskdir.

addPreprocessor(func, order=None)

Adds a preproceessor function to this task instance. If the function has been decorated with @preprocessor, the order specified by the decorator will be used as the default.

Parameters
  • func – the function to add

  • order (float) – the sorting order for the function relative to all other preprocessors. Takes precedence over order specified by the preprocessor decorator.

addPostprocessor(func, order=0)

Adds a postproceessor function to this task instance. If the function has been decorated with @postprocessor, the order specified by the decorator will be used.

Parameters
  • func (typing.Callable) – the function to add

  • order (float) – the sorting order for the function relative to all other preprocessors. Takes precedence over order specified by the preprocessor decorator.

preprocessors()
Returns

A list of preprocessors (both decorated methods on the task and external functions that have been added via addPreprocessor)

postprocessors()
Returns

A list of postprocessors, both decorated methods on the task and external functions that have been added via addPostprocessor()

Return type

list[typing.Callable]

reset(*args, **kwargs)

Resets this compound param to its default value:

class Line(CompoundParam):
    start = Coord(x=1, y=2)
    end = Coord(x=4, y=5)
line = Line()
line.start.x = line.end.x = 10
assert line.start.x == line.end.x == 10
line.reset()
assert line.start.x == 1
assert line.end.x == 4

Any number of abstract params may be passed in to perform a partial reset of only the specified params:

line.start.x = line.end.x = 10
line.reset(Line.start.x)  # resets just start.x
assert line.start.x == 1
assert line.end.x == 10

line.reset(Line.end)      # resets the entire end point
assert line.end.x == 4

line.start.y = line.end.y = 10
line.reset(Line.start.y, Line.end.y)  # resets the y-coord of both
assert line.start.y == 2
assert line.end.y == 5
replicate()

Create a new task with the same input and settings (but no output)

isDebugEnabled()
printDebug(*args)
getDebugString()
requestInterruption()

Request the task to stop.

To enable this feature, subclasses should periodically check whether an interruption has been requested and terminate if it has been. If such logic has been included, INTERRUPT_ENABLED should be set to True.

isInterruptionRequested()
final runPreprocessing(callback=None, calling_context=None)

Run the preprocessors one-by-one. By default, any failing preprocessor will raise a TaskFailure exception and terminate processing. This behavior may be customized by supplying a callback function which will be called after each preprocessor with the result of that preprocessor.

This method is “final” so that all preprocessing logic will be enclosed in the try/finally block.

Parameters
  • callback – a function that takes result and returns a bool that indicates whether to continue on to the next preprocessor

  • calling_context – specify a value here to indicate the context in which this preprocessing is being called. This value will be stored in an instance variable, self.calling_context, which can be accessed from any preprocessor method on this task. Typically this value will be either self.GUI, self.CMDLINE, or None, but any value may be supplied here and checked for in the preprocessor methods. self.calling_context always reverts back to None at the end of runPreprocessing.

guard()

Context manager that saves any Exception raised inside

CMDLINE = 1
DONE = 3
DataClass

This class can be used to declare a public attribute on a CompoundParam. Declared public attributes can be used without error.

Example usage:

class Coord(CompoundParam):

coord = Coord()
coord.note = "hello" # No error
FAILED = 2
GUI = 2

WAITING = 0
__init__(*args, **kwargs)
addFuncToGroup(func, group=None, order=None)

Adds a function to the specified chain. Typically used for adding functions that are not methods of this object.

The function may optionally be decorated with a FuncGroupMarker. If so, the default group and order will be determined by the decorator. Any group or order explicitly passed in to addFuncToGroup will take precedence over the decorator settings.

Parameters
  • func – the function to add

  • group (FuncGroupMarker or None) – the group marker. If the function is decorated with a FuncGoupMarker, that group marker will be the default.

  • order (float or None) – the sorting order. If the function is decorated with a FuncGoupMarker, the order specified in the decorator will be the default.

    @classmethod
    def configureParam(cls):
        super().configureParam()
        cls.setReference(cls.width, cls.height)

square = Square()
assert square.width == square.height == 5 # Default value of width
                                          # takes priority
square.height = 7
assert square.width == square.height == 7
square.width = 6
assert square.width == square.height == 6

class Coord(parameters.CompoundParam):
    x: int
    y: int

isStartable()
isWidgetType(self) bool
isWindowType(self) bool
kill()

Implementations are responsible for immediately stopping the task. No threads or processes should be running after this method is complete.

This method should be called sparingly since in many contexts the task will be forced to terminate without a chance to clean up or free resources.

killTimer(self, id: int)
max_progress: int

Base class for all Param classes. A Param is a descriptor for storing data, which means that a single Param instance will manage the data values for multiple instances of the class that owns it. Example:

class Coord(CompoundParam):
    x: int
    y: int

An instance of the Coord class can be created normally, and Params can be accessed as normal attributes:

coord = Coord()
coord.x = 4

When a Param value is set, the valueChanged signal is emitted. Params can be serialized and deserialized to and from JSON. Params can also be nested:

class Atom(CompoundParam):
    coord: Coord
    element: str
max_progressChanged

classmethod owner()

Get the owner of the param:

# Can be called on an abstract param:
assert Coord.x.owner() == Coord

# ...or on an instance of a CompoundParam
a = Atom()
assert a.coord.owner() == a
classmethod ownerChain()

Returns a list of param owners starting from the toplevel param and ending with self. Examples:

foo.bar.atom.coord.ownerChain() will return [foo, bar, atom, coord] where every item is a concrete param.

Foo.bar.atom.coord.x.ownerChain() will return [Foo, Foo.bar, Foo.atom.coord, Foo.atom.coord.x] where every item is an abstract params.

classmethod paramName()

Get the name of the param:

# Can be called on an abstract param:
print(Coord.x.paramName()) # 'x'

# ...or on an instance of a CompoundParam
a = Atom()
a.coord.paramName() # 'coord'
parent(self) QObject
postprocessors()

Return type

list[typing.Callable]

preprocessors()
Returns

A list of preprocessors (both decorated methods on the task and external functions that have been added via addPreprocessor)

printDebug(*args)
processFuncChain(chain=None, result_callback=None)

Execute each function in the specified chain sequentially in order.

The result_callback is called after each function with the return value of that function. This can be used to respond to the return value (e.g. present information to the user, get user feedback, log the result, etc.)

The return value of the result_callback determines whether processing will proceeed to the next function.

Parameters
  • chain (FuncChainDecorator) – which chain to process

  • result_callback – the callback that will get called with the result of each function in the chain

Returns

a list of the results from the functions

progress: int

Base class for all Param classes. A Param is a descriptor for storing data, which means that a single Param instance will manage the data values for multiple instances of the class that owns it. Example:

class Coord(CompoundParam):
    x: int
    y: int

An instance of the Coord class can be created normally, and Params can be accessed as normal attributes:

coord = Coord()
coord.x = 4

When a Param value is set, the valueChanged signal is emitted. Params can be serialized and deserialized to and from JSON. Params can also be nested:

class Atom(CompoundParam):
    coord: Coord
    element: str

property(self, name: str) Any
pyqtConfigure(...)

Each keyword argument is either the name of a Qt property or a Qt signal. For properties the property is set to the given value which should be of an appropriate type. For signals the signal is connected to the given value which should be a callable.

receivers(self, signal: PYQT_SIGNAL) int
removeEventFilter(self, a0: QObject)
replicate()

Create a new task with the same input and settings (but no output)

requestInterruption()

Request the task to stop.

To enable this feature, subclasses should periodically check whether an interruption has been requested and terminate if it has been. If such logic has been included, INTERRUPT_ENABLED should be set to True.

reset(*args, **kwargs)

Resets this compound param to its default value:

class Line(CompoundParam):
    start = Coord(x=1, y=2)
    end = Coord(x=4, y=5)
line = Line()
line.start.x = line.end.x = 10
assert line.start.x == line.end.x == 10
line.reset()
assert line.start.x == 1
assert line.end.x == 4

Any number of abstract params may be passed in to perform a partial reset of only the specified params:

line.start.x = line.end.x = 10
line.reset(Line.start.x)  # resets just start.x
assert line.start.x == 1
assert line.end.x == 10

line.reset(Line.end)      # resets the entire end point
assert line.end.x == 4

line.start.y = line.end.y = 10
line.reset(Line.start.y, Line.end.y)  # resets the y-coord of both
assert line.start.y == 2
assert line.end.y == 5
classmethod runFromCmdLine()
runPreprocessing(callback=None, calling_context=None)

Run the preprocessors one-by-one. By default, any failing preprocessor will raise a TaskFailure exception and terminate processing. This behavior may be customized by supplying a callback function which will be called after each preprocessor with the result of that preprocessor.

This method is “final” so that all preprocessing logic will be enclosed in the try/finally block.

Parameters
  • callback – a function that takes result and returns a bool that indicates whether to continue on to the next preprocessor

  • calling_context – specify a value here to indicate the context in which this preprocessing is being called. This value will be stored in an instance variable, self.calling_context, which can be accessed from any preprocessor method on this task. Typically this value will be either self.GUI, self.CMDLINE, or None, but any value may be supplied here and checked for in the preprocessor methods. self.calling_context always reverts back to None at the end of runPreprocessing.

sender(self) QObject
senderSignalIndex(self) int
setObjectName(self, name: str)
classmethod setParamValue(obj, value)

Set the value of a param on an object by specifying the instance and the value:

# Setting the param value of a basic param
a = Atom()
Atom.coord.x.setParamValue(a, 5)
assert a.coord.x == 5

# setParamValue can also be used to set the value of CompoundParams
c = Coord()
c.x = 10
atom.coord.setParamValue(a, c)
assert atom.coord.x == 10
Parameters
  • param – The owner param to set a subparam value of.

  • value – The value to set the subparam value to.

setParent(self, a0: QObject)
setProperty(self, name: str, value: Any) bool
classmethod setReference(param1, param2)

Call this class method from configureParam to indicate that two params should be kept in sync. The initial values will start with the default value of param1. Example:

class Square(CompoundParam):
    width: float = 5
    height: float = 10

    @classmethod
    def configureParam(cls):
        super().configureParam()
        cls.setReference(cls.width, cls.height)

square = Square()
assert square.width == square.height == 5 # Default value of width
                                          # takes priority
square.height = 7
assert square.width == square.height == 7
square.width = 6
assert square.width == square.height == 6
Parameters
  • param1 – The first abstract param to keep synced

  • param2 – The second abstract param. After instantiation, this param will take on the value of param1.

setValue(value=None, **kwargs)

Set the value of this CompoundParam to match value.

Parameters
  • value – The value to set this CompoundParam to. It should be the same type as this CompoundParam.

  • kwargs – For internal use only.

signalsBlocked(self) bool
skip_eq_check()
specifyTaskDir(taskdir_spec)

Specify the taskdir creation behavior. Use one of the following options:

A directory name (string). This may be a relative or absolute path

None - no taskdir is requested. The task will use the CWD as its taskdir

AUTO_TASKDIR - a new subdirectory will be created in the CWD using the task name as the directory name.

TEMP_TASKDIR - a temporary directory will be created in the schrodinger temp dir. This directory is cleaned up when the task is deleted.

Parameters

taskdir_spec – one of the four options listed above

start(skip_preprocessing=False)

This is the main method for starting a task. Start will check if a task is not already running, run preprocessing, and then run the task.

Failures in preprocessing will interrupt the task start, and the task will never enter the RUNNING state.

Parameters

skip_preprocessing (bool) – whether to skip preprocessing. This can be useful if preprocessing was already performed prior to calling start.

tr(sourceText: str, disambiguation: typing.Optional[str] = None, n: int = - 1) str
valueChanged
wait(timeout=None)

Block until the task is finished executing or timeout seconds have passed.

Warning

This should not be called directly from GUI code - see PANEL-18317. It is safe to call inside a subprocess or job. Run git grep "task.wait(" to see safe examples annotated with “# OK”.

Parameters

timeout (NoneType or int) – Amount of time in seconds to wait before timing out. If None or a negative number, this method will wait until the task is finished.

class schrodinger.tasks.tasks.AbstractComboTask(*args, _param_type=<object object>, **kwargs)

Bases: schrodinger.tasks.tasks.AbstractCmdTask, schrodinger.tasks.tasks._AbstractFunctionTask

Subclasses should only define params inside of input or output. Top-level params defined in subclasses do NOT get serialized between the frontend and backend task instances. Thus, any modifications of new top-level params in the backend (i.e. mainFunction) will not have any effect on the rehydrated frontend task.

input: schrodinger.models.parameters.CompoundParam

All CompoundParam instances are automatically serializable if their subparams are serializable. To serialize and deserialize, use the schrodinger json module:

from schrodinger.models import json
class Coord(parameters.CompoundParam):
    x: int
    y: int

c1 = Coord(x=1, y=2)
c1_string = json.dumps(c1)
c2 = json.loads(c1_string, DataClass=Coord)
assert c1 == c2
inputChanged
inputReplaced
installEventFilter(self, a0: QObject)
classmethod isAbstract()

Whether the param is an “abstract” param.

isDebugEnabled()
isDefault()

Whether the current value of this instance matches the default value.

isInterruptionRequested()
isRunning()
isSignalConnected(self, signal: QMetaMethod) bool
isStartable()
isWidgetType(self) bool
isWindowType(self) bool
kill()

Implementations are responsible for immediately stopping the task. No threads or processes should be running after this method is complete.

This method should be called sparingly since in many contexts the task will be forced to terminate without a chance to clean up or free resources.

killTimer(self, id: int)
mainFunction()
max_progress: int

Base class for all Param classes. A Param is a descriptor for storing data, which means that a single Param instance will manage the data values for multiple instances of the class that owns it. Example:

class Coord(CompoundParam):
    x: int
    y: int

An instance of the Coord class can be created normally, and Params can be accessed as normal attributes:

coord = Coord()
coord.x = 4

When a Param value is set, the valueChanged signal is emitted. Params can be serialized and deserialized to and from JSON. Params can also be nested:

class Atom(CompoundParam):
    coord: Coord
    element: str
max_progressChanged
max_progressReplaced

classmethod owner()

Get the owner of the param:

# Can be called on an abstract param:
assert Coord.x.owner() == Coord

# ...or on an instance of a CompoundParam
a = Atom()
assert a.coord.owner() == a
classmethod ownerChain()

Returns a list of param owners starting from the toplevel param and ending with self. Examples:

foo.bar.atom.coord.ownerChain() will return [foo, bar, atom, coord] where every item is a concrete param.

Foo.bar.atom.coord.x.ownerChain() will return [Foo, Foo.bar, Foo.atom.coord, Foo.atom.coord.x] where every item is an abstract params.

classmethod paramName()

Get the name of the param:

# Can be called on an abstract param:
print(Coord.x.paramName()) # 'x'

# ...or on an instance of a CompoundParam
a = Atom()
a.coord.paramName() # 'coord'

printDebug(*args)
processFuncChain(chain=None, result_callback=None)

Execute each function in the specified chain sequentially in order.

The result_callback is called after each function with the return value of that function. This can be used to respond to the return value (e.g. present information to the user, get user feedback, log the result, etc.)

The return value of the result_callback determines whether processing will proceeed to the next function.

Parameters
  • chain (FuncChainDecorator) – which chain to process

  • result_callback – the callback that will get called with the result of each function in the chain

Returns

a list of the results from the functions

progress: int

Base class for all Param classes. A Param is a descriptor for storing data, which means that a single Param instance will manage the data values for multiple instances of the class that owns it. Example:

class Coord(CompoundParam):
    x: int
    y: int

An instance of the Coord class can be created normally, and Params can be accessed as normal attributes:

coord = Coord()
coord.x = 4

When a Param value is set, the valueChanged signal is emitted. Params can be serialized and deserialized to and from JSON. Params can also be nested:

property(self, name: str) Any
pyqtConfigure(...)

Each keyword argument is either the name of a Qt property or a Qt signal. For properties the property is set to the given value which should be of an appropriate type. For signals the signal is connected to the given value which should be a callable.

receivers(self, signal: PYQT_SIGNAL) int
removeEventFilter(self, a0: QObject)
replicate()

Create a new task with the same input and settings (but no output)

requestInterruption()

Request the task to stop.

To enable this feature, subclasses should periodically check whether an interruption has been requested and terminate if it has been. If such logic has been included, INTERRUPT_ENABLED should be set to True.

reset(*args, **kwargs)

Resets this compound param to its default value:

class Line(CompoundParam):
    start = Coord(x=1, y=2)
    end = Coord(x=4, y=5)
line = Line()
line.start.x = line.end.x = 10
assert line.start.x == line.end.x == 10
line.reset()
assert line.start.x == 1
assert line.end.x == 4

Any number of abstract params may be passed in to perform a partial reset of only the specified params:

line.start.x = line.end.x = 10
line.reset(Line.start.x)  # resets just start.x
assert line.start.x == 1
assert line.end.x == 10

line.reset(Line.end)      # resets the entire end point
assert line.end.x == 4

line.start.y = line.end.y = 10
line.reset(Line.start.y, Line.end.y)  # resets the y-coord of both
assert line.start.y == 2
assert line.end.y == 5
run()
runCmd(cmd)
classmethod runFromCmdLine()
runPreprocessing(callback=None, calling_context=None)

Run the preprocessors one-by-one. By default, any failing preprocessor will raise a TaskFailure exception and terminate processing. This behavior may be customized by supplying a callback function which will be called after each preprocessor with the result of that preprocessor.

This method is “final” so that all preprocessing logic will be enclosed in the try/finally block.

Parameters
  • callback – a function that takes result and returns a bool that indicates whether to continue on to the next preprocessor

  • calling_context – specify a value here to indicate the context in which this preprocessing is being called. This value will be stored in an instance variable, self.calling_context, which can be accessed from any preprocessor method on this task. Typically this value will be either self.GUI, self.CMDLINE, or None, but any value may be supplied here and checked for in the preprocessor methods. self.calling_context always reverts back to None at the end of runPreprocessing.

sender(self) QObject
senderSignalIndex(self) int
setObjectName(self, name: str)
classmethod setParamValue(obj, value)

Set the value of a param on an object by specifying the instance and the value:

# Setting the param value of a basic param
a = Atom()
Atom.coord.x.setParamValue(a, 5)
assert a.coord.x == 5

# setParamValue can also be used to set the value of CompoundParams
c = Coord()
c.x = 10
atom.coord.setParamValue(a, c)
assert atom.coord.x == 10
Parameters
  • param – The owner param to set a subparam value of.

  • value – The value to set the subparam value to.

setParent(self, a0: QObject)
setProperty(self, name: str, value: Any) bool
classmethod setReference(param1, param2)

Call this class method from configureParam to indicate that two params should be kept in sync. The initial values will start with the default value of param1. Example:

class Square(CompoundParam):
    width: float = 5
    height: float = 10

    @classmethod
    def configureParam(cls):
        super().configureParam()
        cls.setReference(cls.width, cls.height)

square = Square()
assert square.width == square.height == 5 # Default value of width
                                          # takes priority
square.height = 7
assert square.width == square.height == 7
square.width = 6
assert square.width == square.height == 6
Parameters
  • param1 – The first abstract param to keep synced

  • param2 – The second abstract param. After instantiation, this param will take on the value of param1.

setValue(value=None, **kwargs)

Set the value of this CompoundParam to match value.

Parameters
  • value – The value to set this CompoundParam to. It should be the same type as this CompoundParam.

  • kwargs – For internal use only.

Parameters
  • func – the function to add

  • group (FuncGroupMarker or None) – the group marker. If the function is decorated with a FuncGoupMarker, that group marker will be the default.

  • order (float or None) – the sorting order. If the function is decorated with a FuncGoupMarker, the order specified in the decorator will be the default.

addPostprocessor(func, order=0)

Adds a postproceessor function to this task instance. If the function has been decorated with @postprocessor, the order specified by the decorator will be used.

Parameters
  • func (typing.Callable) – the function to add

  • order (float) – the sorting order for the function relative to all other preprocessors. Takes precedence over order specified by the preprocessor decorator.

addPreprocessor(func, order=None)

Adds a preproceessor function to this task instance. If the function has been decorated with @preprocessor, the order specified by the decorator will be used as the default.

Parameters
  • func – the function to add

Base class for all Param classes. A Param is a descriptor for storing data, which means that a single Param instance will manage the data values for multiple instances of the class that owns it. Example:

class Coord(CompoundParam):
    x: int
    y: int

An instance of the Coord class can be created normally, and Params can be accessed as normal attributes:

coord = Coord()
coord.x = 4

When a Param value is set, the valueChanged signal is emitted. Params can be serialized and deserialized to and from JSON. Params can also be nested:

class Atom(CompoundParam):
    coord: Coord
    element: str
progressChanged
progressReplaced
progress_string: str

Base class for all Param classes. A Param is a descriptor for storing data, which means that a single Param instance will manage the data values for multiple instances of the class that owns it. Example:

class Coord(CompoundParam):
    x: int
    y: int

An instance of the Coord class can be created normally, and Params can be accessed as normal attributes:

coord = Coord()
coord.x = 4

When a Param value is set, the valueChanged signal is emitted. Params can be serialized and deserialized to and from JSON. Params can also be nested:

class Atom(CompoundParam):
    coord: Coord
    element: str
progress_stringChanged
progress_stringReplaced
property(self, name: str) Any
pyqtConfigure(...)

Each keyword argument is either the name of a Qt property or a Qt signal. For properties the property is set to the given value which should be of an appropriate type. For signals the signal is connected to the given value which should be a callable.

receivers(self, signal: PYQT_SIGNAL) int
removeEventFilter(self, a0: QObject)
replicate()

Create a new task with the same input and settings (but no output)

requestInterruption()

Request the task to stop.

To enable this feature, subclasses should periodically check whether an interruption has been requested and terminate if it has been. If such logic has been included, INTERRUPT_ENABLED should be set to True.

reset(*args, **kwargs)

Resets this compound param to its default value:

class Line(CompoundParam):
    start = Coord(x=1, y=2)
    end = Coord(x=4, y=5)
line = Line()
line.start.x = line.end.x = 10
assert line.start.x == line.end.x == 10
line.reset()
assert line.start.x == 1
assert line.end.x == 4

Any number of abstract params may be passed in to perform a partial reset of only the specified params:

line.start.x = line.end.x = 10
line.reset(Line.start.x)  # resets just start.x
assert line.start.x == 1
assert line.end.x == 10

line.reset(Line.end)      # resets the entire end point
assert line.end.x == 4

line.start.y = line.end.y = 10
line.reset(Line.start.y, Line.end.y)  # resets the y-coord of both
assert line.start.y == 2
assert line.end.y == 5
run()
classmethod runFromCmdLine()
runPreprocessing(callback=None, calling_context=None)

Run the preprocessors one-by-one. By default, any failing preprocessor will raise a TaskFailure exception and terminate processing. This behavior may be customized by supplying a callback function which will be called after each preprocessor with the result of that preprocessor.

This method is “final” so that all preprocessing logic will be enclosed in the try/finally block.

Parameters
  • callback – a function that takes result and returns a bool that indicates whether to continue on to the next preprocessor

  • calling_context – specify a value here to indicate the context in which this preprocessing is being called. This value will be stored in an instance variable, self.calling_context, which can be accessed from any preprocessor method on this task. Typically this value will be either self.GUI, self.CMDLINE, or None, but any value may be supplied here and checked for in the preprocessor methods. self.calling_context always reverts back to None at the end of runPreprocessing.

sender(self) QObject
senderSignalIndex(self) int
setObjectName(self, name: str)
classmethod setParamValue(obj, value)

Set the value of a param on an object by specifying the instance and the value:

# Setting the param value of a basic param
a = Atom()
Atom.coord.x.setParamValue(a, 5)
assert a.coord.x == 5

# setParamValue can also be used to set the value of CompoundParams
c = Coord()
c.x = 10
atom.coord.setParamValue(a, c)
assert atom.coord.x == 10
Parameters
  • param – The owner param to set a subparam value of.

  • value – The value to set the subparam value to.

setParent(self, a0: QObject)
setProperty(self, name: str, value: Any) bool
classmethod setReference(param1, param2)

Call this class method from configureParam to indicate that two params should be kept in sync. The initial values will start with the default value of param1. Example:

class Square(CompoundParam):
    width: float = 5
    height: float = 10

    @classmethod
    def configureParam(cls):
        super().configureParam()
        cls.setReference(cls.width, cls.height)

square = Square()
assert square.width == square.height == 5 # Default value of width
                                          # takes priority
square.height = 7
assert square.width == square.height == 7
square.width = 6
assert square.width == square.height == 6
Parameters
  • param1 – The first abstract param to keep synced

  • param2 – The second abstract param. After instantiation, this param will take on the value of param1.

setValue(value=None, **kwargs)

Set the value of this CompoundParam to match value.

Parameters
  • value – The value to set this CompoundParam to. It should be the same type as this CompoundParam.

  • kwargs – For internal use only.

signalsBlocked(self) bool
skip_eq_check()
specifyTaskDir(taskdir_spec)

Specify the taskdir creation behavior. Use one of the following options:

A directory name (string). This may be a relative or absolute path

Bases: schrodinger.tasks.tasks.ThreadMixin, schrodinger.tasks.tasks._AbstractFunctionTask

A task that runs a function in a separate thread. To use, implement mainFunction.

Note: this class should not be used except in limited circumstances, as much of our internal code is not thread safe (e.g. structure.Structure - see PANEL-16783). New implementations will have to register their usage in test_thread_usage.py, and include the following warning in the mainFunction of the task:

# This logic will be run in a worker thread and must not # access thread-unsafe libraries, including structure.Structure.

AUTO_TASKDIR = 1
CMDLINE = 1
DEFAULT_TASKDIR_SETTING = None
DONE = 3
DataClass

This class can be used to declare a public attribute on a CompoundParam. Declared public attributes can be used without error.

Example usage:

addFuncToGroup(func, group=None, order=None)

Adds a function to the specified chain. Typically used for adding functions that are not methods of this object.

The function may optionally be decorated with a FuncGroupMarker. If so, the default group and order will be determined by the decorator. Any group or order explicitly passed in to addFuncToGroup will take precedence over the decorator settings.

Parameters
  • func – the function to add

  • group (FuncGroupMarker or None) – the group marker. If the function is decorated with a FuncGoupMarker, that group marker will be the default.

  • order (float or None) – the sorting order. If the function is decorated with a FuncGoupMarker, the order specified in the decorator will be the default.

addPostprocessor(func, order=0)

Adds a postproceessor function to this task instance. If the function has been decorated with @postprocessor, the order specified by the decorator will be used.

Parameters
  • func (typing.Callable) – the function to add

  • order (float) – the sorting order for the function relative to all other preprocessors. Takes precedence over order specified by the preprocessor decorator.

addPreprocessor(func, order=None)

Adds a preproceessor function to this task instance. If the function has been decorated with @preprocessor, the order specified by the decorator will be used as the default.

Parameters
  • func – the function to add

  • order (float) – the sorting order for the function relative to all other preprocessors. Takes precedence over order specified by the preprocessor decorator.

killTimer(self, id: int)
mainFunction()
max_progress: int

Base class for all Param classes. A Param is a descriptor for storing data, which means that a single Param instance will manage the data values for multiple instances of the class that owns it. Example:

class Coord(CompoundParam):
    x: int
    y: int

An instance of the Coord class can be created normally, and Params can be accessed as normal attributes:

coord = Coord()
coord.x = 4

When a Param value is set, the valueChanged signal is emitted. Params can be serialized and deserialized to and from JSON. Params can also be nested:

class Atom(CompoundParam):
    coord: Coord

# Can be called on an abstract param:
assert Coord.x.owner() == Coord

# ...or on an instance of a CompoundParam
a = Atom()
assert a.coord.owner() == a
classmethod ownerChain()

Returns a list of param owners starting from the toplevel param and ending with self. Examples:

foo.bar.atom.coord.ownerChain() will return [foo, bar, atom, coord] where every item is a concrete param.

Foo.bar.atom.coord.x.ownerChain() will return [Foo, Foo.bar, Foo.atom.coord, Foo.atom.coord.x] where every item is an abstract params.

classmethod paramName()

Get the name of the param:

# Can be called on an abstract param:
print(Coord.x.paramName()) # 'x'

# ...or on an instance of a CompoundParam
a = Atom()
a.coord.paramName() # 'coord'
parent(self) QObject

Returns

A list of preprocessors (both decorated methods on the task and external functions that have been added via addPreprocessor)

printDebug(*args)
processFuncChain(chain=None, result_callback=None)

Execute each function in the specified chain sequentially in order.

The result_callback is called after each function with the return value of that function. This can be used to respond to the return value (e.g. present information to the user, get user feedback, log the result, etc.)

The return value of the result_callback determines whether processing will proceeed to the next function.

Parameters
  • chain (FuncChainDecorator) – which chain to process

  • result_callback – the callback that will get called with the result of each function in the chain

Returns

a list of the results from the functions

addFuncToGroup(func, group=None, order=None)

Adds a function to the specified chain. Typically used for adding functions that are not methods of this object.

The function may optionally be decorated with a FuncGroupMarker. If so, the default group and order will be determined by the decorator. Any group or order explicitly passed in to addFuncToGroup will take precedence over the decorator settings.

Parameters
  • func – the function to add

  • group (FuncGroupMarker or None) – the group marker. If the function is decorated with a FuncGoupMarker, that group marker will be the default.

  • order (float or None) – the sorting order. If the function is decorated with a FuncGoupMarker, the order specified in the decorator will be the default.

addPostprocessor(func, order=0)

Adds a postproceessor function to this task instance. If the function has been decorated with @postprocessor, the order specified by the decorator will be used.

Parameters
  • func (typing.Callable) – the function to add

  • order (float) – the sorting order for the function relative to all other preprocessors. Takes precedence over order specified by the preprocessor decorator.

addPreprocessor(func, order=None)

Adds a preproceessor function to this task instance. If the function has been decorated with @preprocessor, the order specified by the decorator will be used as the default.

Parameters
  • func – the function to add

  • order (float) – the sorting order for the function relative to all other preprocessors. Takes precedence over order specified by the preprocessor decorator.

@overrides: parameters.CompoundParam

input: schrodinger.models.parameters.CompoundParam

All CompoundParam instances are automatically serializable if their subparams are serializable. To serialize and deserialize, use the schrodinger json module:

from schrodinger.models import json
class Coord(parameters.CompoundParam):
    x: int
    y: int

c1 = Coord(x=1, y=2)
c1_string = json.dumps(c1)

isInterruptionRequested()
isRunning()
isSignalConnected(self, signal: QMetaMethod) bool
isStartable()
isWidgetType(self) bool
isWindowType(self) bool
kill()

@overrides: AbstractTask

Kill the subprocess and set the status to FAILED.

killTimer(self, id: int)
makeCmd()
max_progress: int

Base class for all Param classes. A Param is a descriptor for storing data, which means that a single Param instance will manage the data values for multiple instances of the class that owns it. Example:

class Coord(CompoundParam):
    x: int
    y: int

An instance of the Coord class can be created normally, and Params can be accessed as normal attributes:

coord = Coord()
coord.x = 4

When a Param value is set, the valueChanged signal is emitted. Params can be serialized and deserialized to and from JSON. Params can also be nested:

class Atom(CompoundParam):
    coord: Coord
    element: str
max_progressChanged
max_progressReplaced

output: schrodinger.models.parameters.CompoundParam

All CompoundParam instances are automatically serializable if their subparams are serializable. To serialize and deserialize, use the schrodinger json module:

from schrodinger.models import json
class Coord(parameters.CompoundParam):
    x: int
    y: int

c1 = Coord(x=1, y=2)
c1_string = json.dumps(c1)
c2 = json.loads(c1_string, DataClass=Coord)
assert c1 == c2
outputChanged
outputReplaced
classmethod owner()

Get the owner of the param:

# Can be called on an abstract param:
assert Coord.x.owner() == Coord

# ...or on an instance of a CompoundParam
a = Atom()
assert a.coord.owner() == a
classmethod ownerChain()

Returns a list of param owners starting from the toplevel param and ending with self. Examples:

foo.bar.atom.coord.ownerChain() will return [foo, bar, atom, coord] where every item is a concrete param.

Foo.bar.atom.coord.x.ownerChain() will return [Foo, Foo.bar, Foo.atom.coord, Foo.atom.coord.x] where every item is an abstract params.

classmethod paramName()

Get the name of the param:

# Can be called on an abstract param:
print(Coord.x.paramName()) # 'x'

# ...or on an instance of a CompoundParam
a = Atom()
a.coord.paramName() # 'coord'
parent(self) QObject
postprocessors()
Returns

A list of postprocessors, both decorated methods on the task and external functions that have been added via addPostprocessor()

Return type

list[typing.Callable]

preprocessors()
Returns

A list of preprocessors (both decorated methods on the task and external functions that have been added via addPreprocessor)

printDebug(*args)
printingOutputToTerminal()
Returns

whether the StdOut and StdErr output from this task is being printed to the terminal

Return type

bool

processFuncChain(chain=None, result_callback=None)

Execute each function in the specified chain sequentially in order.

The result_callback is called after each function with the return value of that function. This can be used to respond to the return value (e.g. present information to the user, get user feedback, log the result, etc.)

The return value of the result_callback determines whether processing will proceeed to the next function.

Parameters
  • chain (FuncChainDecorator) – which chain to process

  • result_callback – the callback that will get called with the result of each function in the chain

Returns

a list of the results from the functions

progress: int

Base class for all Param classes. A Param is a descriptor for storing data, which means that a single Param instance will manage the data values for multiple instances of the class that owns it. Example:

class Coord(CompoundParam):
    x: int
    y: int

An instance of the Coord class can be created normally, and Params can be accessed as normal attributes:

coord = Coord()
coord.x = 4

When a Param value is set, the valueChanged signal is emitted. Params can be serialized and deserialized to and from JSON. Params can also be nested:

class Atom(CompoundParam):
    coord: Coord
    element: str
progressChanged
progressReplaced
progress_string: str

class Atom(CompoundParam):
    coord: Coord
    element: str
progress_stringChanged
progress_stringReplaced
property(self, name: str) Any
pyqtConfigure(...)

Each keyword argument is either the name of a Qt property or a Qt signal. For properties the property is set to the given value which should be of an appropriate type. For signals the signal is connected to the given value which should be a callable.

qprocess

This class can be used to declare a public attribute on a CompoundParam. Declared public attributes can be used without error.

Example usage:

class Coord(CompoundParam):
    x: int
    y: int
    note = NonParamAttribute()

coord = Coord()
coord.note = "hello" # No error
receivers(self, signal: PYQT_SIGNAL) int
removeEventFilter(self, a0: QObject)
replicate()

Create a new task with the same input and settings (but no output)

requestInterruption()

Request the task to stop.

To enable this feature, subclasses should periodically check whether an interruption has been requested and terminate if it has been. If such logic has been included, INTERRUPT_ENABLED should be set to True.

reset(*args, **kwargs)

Resets this compound param to its default value:

class Line(CompoundParam):
    start = Coord(x=1, y=2)
    end = Coord(x=4, y=5)
line = Line()
line.start.x = line.end.x = 10
assert line.start.x == line.end.x == 10
line.reset()
assert line.start.x == 1
assert line.end.x == 4

Any number of abstract params may be passed in to perform a partial reset of only the specified params:

line.start.x = line.end.x = 10
line.reset(Line.start.x)  # resets just start.x
assert line.start.x == 1
assert line.end.x == 10

line.reset(Line.end)      # resets the entire end point
assert line.end.x == 4

line.start.y = line.end.y = 10
line.reset(Line.start.y, Line.end.y)  # resets the y-coord of both
assert line.start.y == 2
assert line.end.y == 5
run()
runCmd(cmd)
classmethod runFromCmdLine()
runPreprocessing(callback=None, calling_context=None)

Run the preprocessors one-by-one. By default, any failing preprocessor will raise a TaskFailure exception and terminate processing. This behavior may be customized by supplying a callback function which will be called after each preprocessor with the result of that preprocessor.

This method is “final” so that all preprocessing logic will be enclosed in the try/finally block.

Parameters
  • callback – a function that takes result and returns a bool that indicates whether to continue on to the next preprocessor

  • calling_context – specify a value here to indicate the context in which this preprocessing is being called. This value will be stored in an instance variable, self.calling_context, which can be accessed from any preprocessor method on this task. Typically this value will be either self.GUI, self.CMDLINE, or None, but any value may be supplied here and checked for in the preprocessor methods. self.calling_context always reverts back to None at the end of runPreprocessing.

sender(self) QObject
senderSignalIndex(self) int
setObjectName(self, name: str)
classmethod setParamValue(obj, value)

Set the value of a param on an object by specifying the instance and the value:

# Setting the param value of a basic param
a = Atom()
Atom.coord.x.setParamValue(a, 5)
assert a.coord.x == 5

# setParamValue can also be used to set the value of CompoundParams
c = Coord()
c.x = 10
atom.coord.setParamValue(a, c)
assert atom.coord.x == 10
Parameters
  • param – The owner param to set a subparam value of.

  • value – The value to set the subparam value to.

setParent(self, a0: QObject)
setPrintingOutputToTerminal(print_to_terminal)

Set this task to print StdOut and StdErr output to terminal, or not. This must be set before starting the task to enable terminal output.

Parameters

print_to_terminal (bool) – whether to send process output to terminal

setProperty(self, name: str, value: Any) bool
classmethod setReference(param1, param2)

Call this class method from configureParam to indicate that two params should be kept in sync. The initial values will start with the default value of param1. Example:

class Square(CompoundParam):
    width: float = 5
    height: float = 10

    @classmethod
    def configureParam(cls):
        super().configureParam()
        cls.setReference(cls.width, cls.height)

square = Square()
assert square.width == square.height == 5 # Default value of width
                                          # takes priority
square.height = 7
assert square.width == square.height == 7
square.width = 6
assert square.width == square.height == 6
Parameters
  • param1 – The first abstract param to keep synced

  • param2 – The second abstract param. After instantiation, this param will take on the value of param1.

setValue(value=None, **kwargs)

Set the value of this CompoundParam to match value.

Parameters
  • value – The value to set this CompoundParam to. It should be the same type as this CompoundParam.

  • kwargs – For internal use only.

signalsBlocked(self) bool
skip_eq_check()
specifyTaskDir(taskdir_spec)

Specify the taskdir creation behavior. Use one of the following options:

A directory name (string). This may be a relative or absolute path

None - no taskdir is requested. The task will use the CWD as its taskdir

AUTO_TASKDIR - a new subdirectory will be created in the CWD using the task name as the directory name.

TEMP_TASKDIR - a temporary directory will be created in the schrodinger temp dir. This directory is cleaned up when the task is deleted.

Parameters

taskdir_spec – one of the four options listed above

start(*args, **kwargs)

This is the main method for starting a task. Start will check if a task is not already running, run preprocessing, and then run the task.

Failures in preprocessing will interrupt the task start, and the task will never enter the RUNNING state.

Parameters

skip_preprocessing (bool) – whether to skip preprocessing. This can be useful if preprocessing was already performed prior to calling start.

valueChanged
wait(timeout=None)

Block until the task is finished executing or timeout seconds have passed.

Warning

This should not be called directly from GUI code - see PANEL-18317. It is safe to call inside a subprocess or job. Run git grep "task.wait(" to see safe examples annotated with “# OK”.

Parameters

timeout (NoneType or int) – Amount of time in seconds to wait before timing out. If None or a negative number, this method will wait until the task is finished.
