What does the WDL development cycle look like?
Ok, this is a "soft" question but one that I could use some help with. One thing I've found is that, even when using a test data set, developing WDL code is slow, mostly because the programs running it are slow. And, right now, what will often happen is that a command that works file in the container it was developed in will error out in WDL because of typos, syntax, etc. So, my question is:
Is there any way to launch a WDL script from a specified step in the workflow (assuming that you have pointers to all of the files that would go in at that step)? It would be great to be able to develop each step in my pipeline iteratively on top of the results that came before.
More broadly, thoughts on how to have quick iteration cycle with WDL would be helpful.
