The ISAconfigurator allows for creation of XML files (configuration files) used to build spreadsheets in the ISAcreator and for validation in the creator and ISAvalidation code.
Please note that the ISAtools team aims to fix bugs found in this tool when time permits, but no additional functionality is expected to be added in the near future.
Given user requests and the natural evolution of the ISAtools, we are now actively developing tools such as the ISA-API, which is a Python-based API for programmatic management of ISA metadata for experimental descriptions.
