Application portability conundrum of Galactic proportions.
Using application containers for portability, especially overcoming Toolshed build issues.
The wonderful, but checkered history of Toolshed distribution of galaxy tools has had its share of delights and frustrations, the latter often attributed to Linux distribution issues, but nevertheless big time sinks. While a lot of work in the Galaxy ecosystem is being done towards Dockerizing everything some sites have no opportunity to run Docker. Let's talk about some other possibilities focused on the application portability to try to make toolshed tool distribution as painless as possible.If you are interested in participating in this BoF, create a Sched login (if you don't already have one), and add this BoF to your personal schedule.
