Hi, I'm testing dagster in a mixed cloud/hpc environment and I would like to write a custom run launcher to launch jobs on the hpc partition which is governed by a workload manager (PBS).. Is there any kind of documentation and/or blog post explaining how to implement a custom run launcher?

Hi Marco - we don't currently have docs for this unfortunately. My recommendation to start would be to look at the DockerRunLauncher as an example: The main difference would be that it would need to run that same command in a container in some other environment If more detailed docs would be helpful here would you find filing a github issue to help prioritize?
Also happy to talk through questions that come up here from looking through that run launcher as a nexample
