Popper is an experimentation protocol for organizing a academic article’s artifacts following a DevOps approach (sometimes referred to as “SciOps”). This documentation describes the experimentation protocol and the Popper CLI tool; it gives examples from multiple domains showing how to follow the protocol; and also shows how to use a CI system to continuously validate Popperized experiments.
