I like web app because user does not need client soft to use it.
I often use cytoscape to visualise molecular network. Network view is very informative.
Yesterday, I found cool web app that using RDKit.
URL is following.
The app is an open source application for visualizing molecular networks.
If user can use docker, Installation is very easy. 😉
I’m mac user, so I start boot2docker at first.
And run following command.
iwatobipen$ boot2docker start iwatobipen$ docker pull ajing/chemtreemap
Wait several minutes……
Then run the server.
iwatobipen$ docker run -t -i -p 8000:8000 ajing/chemtreemap /bin/bash root@6969be03007e:/# cd examples/ root@6969be03007e:/examples# python examples.py
Access to server from mac.
To get docker’s ip just input following command ‘boot2docker ip’.
Worked fine. The app seems light weight and colourful.
And the library using RDKit for chemical structure handling, it’s meaning the app has flexibility for development.
I wish the app had structure search function.
Docker is very useful to share nice technology for everyone.
I’m looking forward to major release of native docker app for MAC.
