This document is for an old release of Galaxy. You can alternatively view this page in the latest release if it exists or view the top of the latest release's documentation.

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.
