# What is Igor?

Igor is a tool for managing 'continuous workarounds'.

It provides an easy to use, reliable place where you can put all those workarounds, which would otherwise be solved by scattered scripts or code fragments across your applications and services.

It is similar to Node-RED (opens new window), Huginn (opens new window) or Beehive (opens new window), i.e. it provides a "low-code" environment for developers.

It's written in Java using Spring Boot (opens new window) and provides an easy-to-use web-frontend written in vue.js (opens new window).

# What can it do?

Continuous workarounds are configured in igor using jobs.

A job ist triggered by a trigger, e.g. a CRON trigger starting the job at a regular interval or an event that is received by the trigger. The trigger creates an initial data item to start the job.

The data item is passed to different, configurable actions, that modify the data to the user's needs. Actions can also be used to load data from, or store modified data items in, external services using connectors for these services..
