Tutorial, Source files

The Galaxy project has developed a significant number of Ansible roles that enable anyone to build a production-level Galaxy server on any infrastructure without much manual effort. In this workshop, we will cover the purpose of the available roles and how they relate to each other. To showcase their use, we will build a complete Galaxy server with personal choice of tools using only a handful of commands.


  • Knowledge and comfort with the Unix/Linux command line interface and a text editor. If you don't know what cd, mv, rm, mkdir, chmod, grep and so on can do then you will struggle in this workshop.
  • Some knowledge of running a Galaxy server.
