P5-05: : Nebulizer: a command-line utility for remote Galaxy admin tasks 🌀

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!


Nebulizer is a Python utility which provides a high-level interactive command line interface to remotely administer Galaxy servers

Nebulizer enables admin operations to be performed efficiently via the command line, as an alternative to using a Galaxy instance's web interface. It was developed to help "part-time" admins perform day-to-day administrative tasks (specifically management of users, tools and data libraries) across multiple Galaxy instances.

The poster gives a brief overview of Nebulizer's main functionality; additionally there is a pre-recorded demo (https://youtu.be/_eXKTSSYBgY) which covers initial installation and set-up, and shows how it can be used to manage users, create and populate data libraries, and to install, update and remove tools.

The poster will presented live at BCC West on Tuesday July 21, 2020 16:30 - 17:15 (Europe/London timezone), and will include a live demo of the utility lasting approximately 30 minutes.
