Tool Shed API Documentation

The Galaxy Tool Shed can be accessed programmatically using API described here via shell scripts and other programs. To interact with the API you first need to obtain API key e.g.: log in as your user, navigate to the API Keys page in the User menu, and generate a new API key. This key you have to attach to every request as a parameter. Example:

GET https://toolshed.g2.bx.psu.edu/api/repositories?q=fastq?key=SOME_KEY_HERE
