#229 closed Enhancement (fixed)

flex_extract requires grib_api even when run in gateway mode

Reported by: ahilboll Owned by: anphi
Priority: trivial Milestone: flex_extract_v7.1.2
Component: flex_extract Version: flex_extract_v7.0.4
Keywords: Cc:


I've installed flex_extract in version 7.0.4, following the instructions given in the SIP.pdf file, section 3.2.2, "Installation using a gateway server".

This works fine, I can submit jobs by running on my local machine, so far so good.

However, I noted that in order to run on my local machine, I need to have *grib_api* installed locally, which doesn't seem to make sense, as all the computations are being carried out on ECMWF servers.

I would suggest to modify so that the from GribTools import GribTools comes inside the if args.queue==None block.

Actually, now that I look at the code, it seems to me that GribTools is not used at all in, so one should be able to just delete that line.
