galaxy.webapps.galaxy package



galaxy.webapps.galaxy.buildapp module

Provides factory methods to assemble the Galaxy web application

class galaxy.webapps.galaxy.buildapp.GalaxyWebApplication(galaxy_app: MinimalApp, session_cookie: str = 'galaxysession', name: str | None = None)[source]

Bases: WebApplication

injection_aware: bool = True
galaxy.webapps.galaxy.buildapp.app_factory(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Return a wsgi application serving the root object

galaxy.webapps.galaxy.buildapp.app_pair(global_conf, load_app_kwds=None, wsgi_preflight=True, **kwargs)[source]

Return a wsgi application serving the root object and the Galaxy application.

When creating an app for asgi, set wsgi_preflight to False to allow FastAPI middleware to handle CORS options, etc..

galaxy.webapps.galaxy.buildapp.populate_api_routes(webapp, app)[source]
galaxy.webapps.galaxy.buildapp.wrap_in_middleware(app, global_conf, application_stack, **local_conf)[source]

Based on the configuration wrap app in a set of common and useful middleware.

galaxy.webapps.galaxy.fast_app module

galaxy.webapps.galaxy.fast_app.add_galaxy_middleware(app: FastAPI, gx_app)[source]
galaxy.webapps.galaxy.fast_app.initialize_fast_app(gx_wsgi_webapp, gx_app)[source]

galaxy.webapps.galaxy.fast_factory module

Module containing factory class for building uvicorn app for Galaxy.

Information on uvicorn, its various settings, and how to invoke it can be found at https://www.uvicorn.org/.

Galaxy can be launched with uvicorn using the following invocation:

uvicorn --app-dir lib --factory galaxy.webapps.galaxy.fast_factory:factory

Use the environment variable GALAXY_CONFIG_FILE to specify a Galaxy configuration file. Galaxy configuration can be loading from a YAML or an .ini file (reads app:main currently but can be overridden with GALAXY_CONFIG_SECTION).

GALAXY_CONFIG_FILE=config/galaxy.yml uvicorn --app-dir lib --factory galaxy.webapps.galaxy.fast_factory:factory


Information on additional ways to configure uvicorn can be found at https://www.uvicorn.org/.


If an ini file is supplied via GALAXY_CONFIG_FILE, the server properties such as host and port are not read from the file like older forms of configuring Galaxy.

Gunicorn is a server with more complex management options.

This factory function can be executed as a uvicorn worker managed with gunicorn with the following command-line.

gunicorn 'galaxy.webapps.galaxy.fast_factory:factory()' --env GALAXY_CONFIG_FILE=config/galaxy.ini --pythonpath lib -w 4 -k uvicorn.workers.UvicornWorker --config lib/galaxy/web_stack/gunicorn_config.py
