I am writing tools and workflows for Galaxy. I am under a Mac OSX.
I found it quite challenging to use all the features available in Galaxy under this Operating System. I don't think pushing more Mac compatibility is realistic and useful (as Galaxy is mostly running under Linux), so I thought it could be really nice if I could use Docker (or another technology) to run Galaxy but still have my tool files under my OSX environment.
Maybe some kind of mapping between Galaxy under Docker and the folders inside my Mac. For example:
Under OSX: MyTool/myTool.xml and MyTool/myTool.py Under Docker or another technology running Linux: Galaxy / Planemo with MyTool mapped into the right folder
I know there are a lot of documentation out there, and Docker efforts, so I maybe missed something.
And let me know how you are handling these kind of setup if you have the same :), so we can come up with a documentation and best practices.
