Hi Martin - I’m cc-ing our development mailing list for posterity.
we are planning to use JalView in our upcoming new CopraRNA postprocessing pipeline to visualize alignments with additional annotations, for which we found JalView very well placed. Thanks for the tool!
Thanks very much
Since we are distributing our tool via the bioconda platform, we would like to know whether you are aware of this platform and if you are interested to provide JalView also this way?
We have indeed been considering bioconda as a distribution route.
Bioconda is currently the most extensive bioinformatics software distribution platform and enables easy to use installation of about 3000 tools. If you would integrate JalView here, its visibility, availability and usage is much increased, since it could be installed via a common interface and also easily integrated/provided as dependency for other tools (like CopraRNA).
This is another excellent reason for us to connect with bioconda downstream.
We could help with the setup of an initial bioconda ‘recipe’, while the update to new releases would have to be done by you via github.
That would be a great help indeed !
One detail is that we do not coordinate jalview development via github. Instead, we manage our development and repositories via issues.jalview.org/git.jalview.org (though we plan to mirror via https://github.com/jalview in the very near future).
I’m happy to spawn a jalview-bioconda distro repository on the jalview github org, but for admin simplicity we will need to ensure that bug reports are passed into our own issue tracker. Does bioconda require packaging work to be coordinated solely via github ?
