Some developments have occurred lately around Tripal, Docker and Galaxy,
so I think it's time to write a little email to keep everyone informed
on what is going on.
For those of you who were at the GMOD meeting in Bloomington, this is a
follow-up to the things Eric Rasche presented, in particular the "galaxy
genome annotation" project: https://github.com/galaxy-genome-annotation
The goal is (one day) to have galaxy tools able to use these python
modules to load data into Tripal or a Chado db directly.
For the moment it should already be easy to write a simple bash script
to deploy a tripal instance and load a complete dataset into it
automatically (for example the test data from the tutorial).
(personnally I found it very useful for tests and reproducibility).
All of this is still young and needs a lot of testing and debugging, if
you are interested, don't hesitate to contribute!
- we just managed to generate the 1.31 Chado dump and to migrate from
tripal 2.0 to 2.x-dev, so we haven't yet tested if everything is ok. Any
help on testing it would be very much appreciated :)
- we added some default tripal modules to the docker image, if you think
other ones deserve to be included, just get in touch!
