BioJS Mecu Line

Visualization of protein melting curves. Original component here.

Component user docs: adding this component to your webpage

Hey! If you'd like to use this component on your webpage, please do the following:

In the <head>, add:

<!-- the library for the webcomponent -->
<script src="dist/bundle.js" type="module"></script>
  .mecu-el {
      width: 800px;
      height: 300px;
      border: 1px solid black;
      font-size: 3px;
      background-color: #fafafa;

This links to the relevant scripts to define the component and fetch data.

In the <body>

Where you want your WebComponent to appear, add the following:

<mecu-line-web id="container"></mecu-line-web>

Important: Make a file named data.json and put the input data for visualisation in it. The data.json file should be in the same directory (at the same level) as the index.html file in which you are using the component.

Some notes on usage:

  • Download the bundle.js file from dist folder and link it to your index.html file.
  • You may use the style.css in dist folder file for styling the component.
  • Use the element like any other HTML element wherever you want.
  • attribute must be a valid identifier with a valid value.
