While DFT calculations are a key step in a simulation workflow, generally more steps are required to obtain a meaningful result. This can include pre/post-processing of results to e.g. compute additional properties, rerun a calculation with a different basis/geometry, or cut out a cluster from a larger structure. This processing often has to be repeated for many different simulations, almost like a cake-recipe. Therefore, making scripts is a mandatory short-cut.
However, making them is, in general, a fairly time-consuming task. To my knowledge, there are paid tools like the Virtual Nanolab, with drag and drop options that facilitate the process. Are there free similar tools? Or at least is there a repository where we can post our own scripts and get scripts from other people?
