Dear Galaxy Devs and Users,
I'm pleased to announce the Galaxy Docker Image project!
The Galaxy Docker Image is an easy distributable full-fledged Galaxy installation, that can be used for testing, teaching and presenting new tools and features.
One of the main goals is to make the access to entire tool suites as easy as possible. Usually, this includes the setup of a public available webservice that needs to be maintained, or that the Tool-user needs to either setup a Galaxy Server by its own or to have Admin access to a local Galaxy server. With docker, tool developers can create their own Image with all dependencies and the user only needs to run it within docker. Ideally suited to make your reviewers happy
Currently, I have three test images to play with. The first one, bgruening/galaxy-stable is the main Image that will do all the heavy lifting of setting up PostgreSQL, Apache and Galaxy.
bgruening/deepTools and bgruening/chemicaltoolbox are proof of concepts how easy it is to create an own Image build on top of the main Galaxy Image.
How to use it:
docker run -d -p 8080:80 bgruening/galaxy-deeptools
docker run -d -p 8080:80 -p 8000:8000 bgruening/galaxy-chemicaltoolbox
