Hey Unmet!

Is it at all possible to deploy the OpenStudio command line interface to a remote server? I am trying to develop lightweight calculation tools without the user having to download the actual software. Ideally, I would like to use a web interface to feed inputs to a .osw file which then would be feed to the CLI to produce reports that would be displayed to the user in a web browser.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

The CLI is a statically linked, self contained executable. It relies on no external dependencies. So yes, you should be able to deploy it to your server so long as you use the appropriate flavor (Linux, Mac, or Windows).

Alternatively, you can 1) simply run the OpenStudio installer on your server, or 2) use the OpenStudio docker container.
