CC-FAICE (Curious Containers - FAIR Collaboration and Experiments) is a CLI tool suite, providing a lot of functionality to users. The main functions are:

  • Providing an agent to run experiments in RED format.
  • Additional tools to convert, validate and export RED files.


Install python3-pip as system package. The following instructions work for Fedora 28, but instructions for other Linux distribution should be similar.

sudo dnf install python3-pip

It is recommended to install a specific version of cc-faice. This will automatically install the latest compatible version of cc-core.

pip3 install --user --upgrade cc-faice==9.*

Run CLI tool.

faice --version
faice --help

If this tool cannot be found, you should modify PATH (e.g. append ${HOME}/.local/bin) or fall back to executing the tools as Python modules.

python3 -m cc_faice --version


The --help flag shows a list of tools, that can have nested subcommands. Each subcommand has its own help section.

faice --help
faice exec --help
