I have two questions.
If I want to use unsupported custom file types, what steps do I need to
Have a look at this wiki page:
Also, if I want to use all/some files in a folder, how can I do
I think it would be really nice if galaxy can allow importing third party
file types / data types / other options in totally separate source trees
from original source tree.
well, you can always delegate this to the script you are going to execute
within galaxy. As long as the user 'galaxy' has access to the this folder
which (I assume) is outside the galaxy directory.
It might need some hard coding of the path in your script, and then do
something like, pseudo code:
- read contents of directory
- if file present run your tool
And this can all be based on parameters (ie: which directory, which file
name ) you provide (or ask for) via the interface.
Maybe you should provide more details about the task you want to do with
galaxy and the someone might be able to help you in a more specific way.
