Minutes for Web Dev Weekly Call (Apr 12, 2016)


  • Finished work to change categories of several tracks in GBrowse; awaiting feedback and then will implement in JBrowse.
  • Improve jbrowse track selection with a plugin, between a simple vs detailed/full view--needs a proxy update to work fully.

ToDo: - look into options to draw users attention to the new feature; perhaps a css addition that highlights "New!"


  • LEGO
    • temporarily deployed at http://dev.wormbase.org:9004/, Kimberly shared with GO group for feedback
    • Last week: done fetching and render entity (node) information from WB REST API, resolved browser compatibility issue with Polyfill, color palette for drawing, tune animation..
    • TODO this week: email GO group about whether their API could support some extra feature.
  • Variation Vis
    • have been fixing things to get the correct CDS model showing.
    • TODO this week: get it working first, before tackle performence isssue


Datomic & website migration

  • Took the minimal necessary changes for website - Clojure API integration (this is in the branch feature/datomic-rest-api).
    • So further Clojure API generally doesn't require code changes in website repo
    • Datomic-to-Clojure repo has been fully re-factored and ready for development
  • Still waiting for Data for WS252 to be correct ( Matt has it converting right now - will likely be done running on Wednesday)


  • we moved docker image storage to the mounted drive, so it won't use up root directory space
  • building the image for WormBase/website has been built
  • TODO this week:
    • testing running container from the image
    • creating documentation and a small get started tutorial for team
