"Executors" are modules that execute each block in an experiment. On the BEAT
platform, there is only the one executor, which executes the experiment using
Docker containers with advanced scheduling and security features. When
developing using ``beat.cmdline``, however, you have the option of using either
the BEAT platform's executor, behind the ``--docker`` flag, or the "local"
executor, provided in this project. The local executor, as explained above, is
Docker containers with advanced scheduling and security features. When using ``beat.cmdline`` locally, however, you have the option of using either
the BEAT platform's executor, behind the ``--docker`` flag (for more information about using docker executors see :ref:`here <beat-core-local-development>`), or the "local"

``beat.cmdline`` is used. This means that many BEAT experiments that
rely on different/multiple environments will not work.
If you want to use the local executor, pay attention to the python environment
used to call `buildout` in your copy of ``beat.cmdline``. The suggested way
to use Bob libraries while developing on the local executor is to use install
``zc.buildout`` in a Python2.7 conda environment with Bob installed. Using
the ``buildout`` command from the environment will make the entire environment
available to ``beat.cmdline`` even when the environment is not active.
