I switched from using the default Python Paste web server for my local Galaxy installation to nginx. I have verified that it works fine so far, but shouldn't the following option in the universe_wsgi.ini file be changed? (I don't see anything in the documentation about this.)
# The internal HTTP server to use. Currently only Paste is provided. This
# option is required.
use = egg:Paste#http

You'll need to update your datatypes_conf.xml file to get custom builds + converters to work. This file is located in the root of your galaxy directory.
If you haven't modified your datatypes_conf.xml file previously, you can just copy datatypes_conf.xml.sample to datatypes_conf.xml If you have modifed this file, please add the following lines to your datatypes_conf.xml:
<converter file="fasta_to_2bit.xml" target_datatype="twobit"/>
<converter file="fasta_to_len.xml" target_datatype="len"/>
to the fasta definition
<converter file="len_to_linecount.xml" target_datatype="linecount"/>
to the len definition
See datatypes_conf.xml.sample for examples.
Also, you'll need to download and add the UCSC program fastaToTwoBit to your path as well. You can find UCSC executables here:

Hello Galaxy Folks,
NCBI has received a few requests to provide a mechanism for people browsing the NCBI databases to download the data they have selected into Galaxy, so we are looking into it. I know some other sites have done this, it looks like through a URL based callback mechanism.
However, I know things can change over time, and I'd like to be sure that we are assessing an approach that reflects your current best thinking, whether it turns out to be something well established you are happy with, or if you might be considering moving toward something new, we'd like you to tell us what you think would work best for your users in your environment.
If you can just point me at a URL with the appropriate documentation, that's great. If you'd prefer to dialog a little, we're happy to talk. If there is a particular person we should be talking to, let me know.
Thanks for your help.

I have an in-house Perl tool that generates a double digit number of
outputs that we'd like the user to have access to, but don't
necessarily need to be in the history. A complicating factor is that
the exact number is determined at run time as user input can add any
number of outputs that can't be determined in the scope of the tools'
Ideally, the end result would be that executing the tool would produce
a single output in the history with the other files either being
hidden or in the extra_files path. The visible file should be an HTML
file that can be used to describe and link to the other outputs as
well as providing the option to either unhide or add the hidden
outputs to the history for use in subsequent analysis.
I've looked at composite datatypes, but as far as I can tell the
documentation and examples don't cover how to produce a composite
datatype with a variable number of outputs. I briefly tried to use
the deprecated <code> tag to iterate over the results with the other
outputs added as hidden extra files to the index after execution, but
wasn't really excited about using a deprecated feature and couldn't
get it working quickly, regardless. Any other suggestions?

I am very new to Galaxy and so far have only used the online interface.
However, I have an old Unix-running computer and I was hoping to run
Galaxy as a local instance. However, the computer has a very small hard
drive, that is already half full, so I was wondering if there is any way I
can run Galaxy by installing it on an external hard drive. I tried
already, and was able to install it properly and connect, but I get errors
when I try to upload data.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I don't have a lot of experience
with Unix systems, so it might be something easy to solve or impossible to
do, I have no idea.
I'm from China and was interested in the i18n of galaxy.
I wrote 4 locale files such as ginga.po/mo and tools.po/mo ,tried them
on my server and it worked well.
I want to contribute it to the galaxy repository but don't know how to
do that because I don't have the permission to push it to bitbucket.
Could anyone tell me how to contribute them ? Thanks~
