Hi Katherine,

an example of a datatype addition can be seen in this PR: https://github.com/galaxyproject/galaxy/pull/2452

You need to define a class and teach it to sniff files of your defined type (with a doctest) and how to generate peek for the datatype's datasets in history.

Let us know if you have more questions and thanks for using Galaxy.

Hi everyone,
I am looking to implement a new parameter type for galaxy tool development. Does anyone know what would be involved in doing something like this or perhaps what files would need to be edited?
