NodePit Batch

Run your KNIME workflows headless

NodePit Batch is the easy way to run your KNIME workflows headless from the command line on your local Linux, Mac or Windows machine or your server. No graphical interface (GUI), command line only, maximum flexibility!

NodePit Batch integrates with the KNIME Analytics Platform and provides you with a clean and simple command line interface (CLI) to configure and run your workflows the way you want.

Getting Started

  1. Install NodePit Batch on your KNIME Analytics Platform via KNIME GUI or NodePit for KNIME. As an alterantive you can also install it via CLI using one of the below commands. Please make sure to use an update site that matches the version of your KNIME Analytics Platform.

     ./knime \
       -nosplash \
       -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director \
       -repository https://download.nodepit.com/5.2 \
       -installIUs com.nodepit.batch.feature.feature.group
     ./KNIME.app/Contents/MacOS/knime \
       -nosplash \
       -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director \
       -repository https://download.nodepit.com/5.2 \
       -installIUs com.nodepit.batch.feature.feature.group
     knime.exe \
       -nosplash \
       -consoleLog \
       -noexit \
       -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director \
       -repository https://download.nodepit.com/5.2 \
       -installIUs com.nodepit.batch.feature.feature.group
  2. Run your workflows from the command line. To see all parameters and options, please run the following command.

     ./knime \
       -nosplash \
       -application com.nodepit.batch.application.NodePitBatchExecutor
     ./KNIME.app/Contents/MacOS/knime \
       -nosplash \
       -application com.nodepit.batch.application.NodePitBatchExecutor
     knime.exe \
       -nosplash \
       -consoleLog \
       -noexit \
       -application com.nodepit.batch.application.NodePitBatchExecutor

    A basic ready-to-use example based on a rudimentary workflow looks like this:

     ./knime \
       -nosplash \
       -application com.nodepit.batch.application.NodePitBatchExecutor \
       https://nodepit.com/download/workflow/com.nodepit.workflows/batch/Hello-NodePit-Batch.knwf
     ./KNIME.app/Contents/MacOS/knime \
       -nosplash \
       -application com.nodepit.batch.application.NodePitBatchExecutor \
       https://nodepit.com/download/workflow/com.nodepit.workflows/batch/Hello-NodePit-Batch.knwf
     knime.exe \
       -nosplash \
       -consoleLog \
       -noexit \
       -application com.nodepit.batch.application.NodePitBatchExecutor \
       https://nodepit.com/download/workflow/com.nodepit.workflows/batch/Hello-NodePit-Batch.knwf
