To get started with Nextflow we are going to run a little example workflow locally.

Clone nextflow-tutorial

We will use the example Genomics workflow of the Nextflow tutorial.

git clone https://github.com/seqeralabs/nextflow-tutorial.git
cd nextflow-tutorial

Nextflow Config

As we are using Docker to execute the pipelines we will predefine the execution engine.

cat << \EOF > $HOME/.nextflow/config
docker.enabled = true
EOF
