How Do I…

This section contains a number of smaller topics with links and examples meant to provide relatively concrete answers for specific Galaxy development scenarios.

… interact with the Galaxy database interactively?

This can be done with either IPython or a plain Python console, depending on your preferences:

python -i scripts/db_shell.py

… build Galaxy Javascript frontend client?

We’ve added a makefile which will let you do this. You can simple run:

make client

If you prefer docker and aren’t a JS developer primarily, you can run

make grunt-docker

Please see the Makefile itself for details and other options. There is also a readme at client/README.md.
