I heard about wordwrangler in this video


To install this app locally it is pretty straighforward, as you only need to run

sudo apt-get install wordgrinder

and works out of the box

On Bridges-2

On Bridges-2 is a little different, since we do not have privileges to install software.

So in order to do this, I will install wordwrangle in a Singularity.

Wait, isn’t this an overkill?

Then again, I really like containers.


Since the installation is pretty-straightforward, the Singularity recipe is easy as well.

(base) ➜  0.8 cat Singularity
Bootstrap: docker
From: debian:buster

    apt update
    apt install -y wordgrinder

For simplicity, I created a repo with the recipe and scripts to build this container remotely and locally.

List of Singularity containers

I added this recipe to the list of utilities of containers I maintain at PSC.
