Connectr UI

Sophisticated Workflow Editing

Create and edit your workflows visually. Units are like building blocks and can be moved via simple drag & drop. Connecting units, editing parameters and organizing your workflows has never been easier.


Control The Flow

connectr is based on a sequential flow-of-control-model, where execution order can be guaranteed and where data is delivered to units in a well-defined and controlled manner.

Instead of pushing data around and initiating execution, units execute in an exactly defined sequence, receiving and transmitting data from units and ports whenever required.

Work At Your Own Pace

Ever had the chance to debug or trace large workflows? connectr designer takes the effort out of this. The flow of data can be visualized and your workflows can be traced step-by-step at your own speed.


Performance Matters

connectr’s workflow profiler visualizes the workflow and unit performance. Execution speed and memory consumption are profiled and visualized graphically. Each unit or your workflow is represented in either execution time or memory consumption.

Feeling the Urge to Code?

connectr’s JavaScript unit can be used to write and execute JavaScript. Data is transmitted by declaring input- and output-ports, project-wide variables can be directly accessed.

The JavaScript unit uses the connectr code editor which supports common features of code editors found in industry-standard IDEs.


UTF-16 Out of the Box

connectr’s user Interface displays a wide range of international characters.
