Dequindre is built for amateurs and professionals with the most essential features in mind. It also functions as a learning tool for those without the time or resources to setup the requisite architecture for a full-featured scheduler.

Inspired by the complexity of Airflow, Dequindre leans heavilty on three lines of the Zen of Python:

  1. Explicit is better than implicit
  2. Simple is better than complex
  3. Readability counts

From this starting point, Dequindre offers

  • Minimal abstraction
  • No Python dependencies; no third-party bugs
  • Single-container deployment
  • Legible source code; fewer than 1000 lines
  • Fast, dynamic workflow configuration
