Local tool installation without using tool shed

Hi everyone,

I recently set up a local Galaxy instance using the tutorial (Galaxy setup using Ansible), which is a great ressource btw. I would now like to install some of my scripts/tools along with various conda environments without having them in the tool shed (yet). Is there any example/tutorial etc. that can provide some guidance? I am using a local gitlab repository.

Thanks and best regards,

Hi Patrick,
to load tool into Galaxy without toolshed you just modify the tool_conf.xml with the path to your tool’s source. Have a look at the sample that contains the default tools Galaxy is loaded with.


Thanks @marten, worked perfectly fine!
