I have several cases where it would be useful to be able to have an interactive webpage as part of a tool. They are basically interactive filtering operations; for example:

  • to select a subset of items from a current dataset using checkboxes (e.g. a set of rows from some tab-delimited data)
  • pick one or more files to load from a remote file system

This functionality would be easy to implement as a CGI, but I'm not sure how (or if!) it could be done as a Galaxy tool. I thought perhaps as a visualisation option, but any ideas would be appreciated!

Hi

Have you looked at "dynamic_options" (https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Admin/Tools/ToolConfigSyntax) ?

The code tag is apparently deprecated -- do you know whether there is a recommend tag to use instead?

we and others still use the code tag a lot.

PS: according to unconfirmed resources going back to GCC2012, the "deprecation" has been "deprecated" ;)
