[slurm-users] REST-based CLI tools out there somewhere?

I’m passingly familiar with JupyterHub, but didn’t realize it had Slurm ties. I’ll take a look at Open OnDemand as well. I don’t think either will meet the requirement of being a replacement for srun from the shell, but a new GUI method would certainly be welcome.

Not a direct answer to your question, but have you looked at Open OnDemand? Or maybe JupyterHub? I think most places today prefer to do either of those which provide somewhat the functionality you asked - and much more. On Thu, Nov 9, 2023

Our users submit their jobs from shared submit hosts, and have expressed an understandable preference for being able to submit directly from their own workstations. The obvious solution (installing the slurm client on their workstations, or providing a container that does something similar) are not available to us because of security concerns. This leaves REST as the best option. We’re hoping to provide a REST-based toolset that users familiar with the command line tools can make immediate use of (so, provides basic, stripped-down functionality of srun, squeue, sacct, and sinfo). Basically, we want to create a subset of the s* commands that can be run from some arbitrary machine if the user has the appropriate token.
It’d be surprising if we were the first people to go down this path, but searching has turned up nothing. Is there a project anyone knows about out there for providing command-line SLURM commands that use REST to talk to the daemons? Or am I missing some obvious solution here?
