This document is for an in-development version 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 have added a Makefile which will let you do this. You can simply run:

make client

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