Hi,

My question is how can I get the absolute path of the galaxy root folder from mako template file of the visualisation plugin? For example, /Users/myname/Downloads/galaxy is my root folder. I want this value in javaScript.

my template file has:

 <%
   root = h.url_for( "/" )
   app_root = root + "plugins/visualizations/protviewer/static/"
%>

I tried to access it in javascript like this:

var config = { root : '${root}' }
alert(config.root)

It gave me '/' but I expected /Users/myname/Downloads/galaxy. Any idea how to get this?

Your code is getting the URL root. It sounds like you're looking for the file system directory for galaxy. This should work as far as I know:

## within the mako file...
<% 
    import os
    galaxy_dir = os.getcwd()
%>
var galaxyDir = "${galaxy_dir}";
