Automated Interactive Infrastructure and Database for Computational Science

AiiDA is a flexible and scalable informatics' infrastructure to manage, preserve, and disseminate the simulations, data, and workflows of modern-day computational science. Able to store the full provenance of each object, and based on a tailored database built for efficient data mining of heterogeneous results, AiiDA gives the user the ability to interact seamlessly with any number of remote HPC resources and codes, thanks to its flexible plugin interface and workflow engine for the automation of complex sequences of simulations.

This is a list of the plugins that interface computational codes to AiiDA.

Developing and maintaining an extensive collection of robust plugins is essential for the AiiDA community to flourish, and we truly appreciate people who want to invest their time in order to help. If you would like to contribute to the development of a plugin, please contact the AiiDA team in order to coordinate your effort with the ongoing projects.
