Make a repository installable

Hi everybody. I’m trying to upload my tool in the public tool shed following this guide (not using Planemo): How to publish a tool in the Tool Shed - Galaxy Community Hub

In my local instance of Galaxy, in the admin tab I can see the repository but it says that it is not possible to install it, which is confirmed also by the repository tab in the tool shed.

I just loaded a tar file with the xml and the python code of the tool, am I missing something else?
Thank you for the help

Hi @Andrea_Furlani,
does it include the .shed.yml file? Could you share the repository link with me?

Hi, this is the repository link (just a test):

It doesn’t include a yml file, just the .py codes and .xml definitions

Hi, I found an error while validating the sys_heatmap.xml file:

Applying linter tool_xsd... FAIL
.. ERROR: Invalid XML found in file: pheno_sys.xml. Errors [/tmp/tmpiy7_00_p:18:0:ERROR:SCHEMASV:SCHEMAV_CVC_COMPLEX_TYPE_3_2_1: Element 'param', attribute 'labels': The attribute 'labels' is not allowed.]

I think that it is the problem; I recommend you to use planemo for developing the Galaxy wrapper.

Thank you for the suggestion. I’m using planemo and I solved the error indicated in your reply, but still the lint fails retrieving this message:

Regarding the warnings: I saw that also in other tools already present in the toolshed the version of the requirements is not always indicated and the citation section often is not present or inserted in the help since they are not using bibtex or doi citations types.

In the folder there are: , tool.xml , .shed.yml
Here’s the temporary link to the repository I loaded manually.

I found the solution by using the following command for lint:

planemo shed_lint --tools --fail_level error

In this way it will not compile only in presence of errors.
