Use cases

In this part of the book you will find concrete examples of DataLad applications for general inspiration. You can get an overview of what is possible by browsing through them, and step-by-step solutions for a range of problems in every single one. Provided you have read the previous Basics sections, the usecases’ code examples are sufficient (though sparser than in Basics) to recreate or apply the solutions they demonstrate.



If you are using DataLad for a use case that is not yet in this chapter, we would be delighted to have you tell us about it in the form of a usecase. Please see the contributing guide for more info.
