Creating a template should allow setting script name #297

The create template dialog only allows entry of the code path, but not the script to use by default. At the moment it appears to pick a random executable for the dir you specify. The only way I can see to fix this is to edit the manifest file after template creation.

Steps to recreate:

  • New template
  • Enter a code path
  • Enter a name
  • Hit save

New template is now shown with a job dialog on the right with a Script Name that was somehow chosen and is not changeable.

Currently setting the script file is the responsibility of the Manifest#default_script, and it is not possible to set it in Manifest#initialize.

A good first step would be to add an input to the new Template view for script selection. A better experience would be to offer a select with all of the files in the root of the selected directory as options. Currently we just take the first *.pbs or *.sh which isn't very intuitive and is PBS/Torque favoritism.

An input on the new Template view would be great and the selection pulldown even better. In general, it would be nice to add the file selection pulldown for any path or file selection across the board.
