A lightweight Java GUI to launch ProtProtocol images
This Java tool provides a simple graphical user interface to install and launch ProtProtocol images.
ProtProtocol images are shipped as Docker containers that contain a complete analysis environment for common proteomics bioinformatics workflows. Since Docker containers are light-weight virtual machines, all required software tools are installed by simply downloading the image.
We currently provide the following ProtProtocol images:
- IsoProt: This protocol supports the analysis of isobarically-labelled (TMT/iTRAQ) datasets starting from the identification of the spectra to the final statistical and differential expression analysis.
- docker-launcher requires Java to be installed. You can download Java from http://www.java.com
- You also need to have Docker installed on your system. For help with this step see our docker installation manual
- Download the current version from the releases.
- Unpack the zip file to any directory
- Simply launch the docker-launcher-[VERSION].jar file (double click or use `java -jar /path/to/docker-launcher-[VERSION].jar)
- Updated to new ProtProtocols docker hub name
- Added alerts for all critical errors
- Available protocol image versions are automatically detected based on the GitHub tag versions.
- Added controls to set input and output directory separately
- Re-styled application
- Added icon
- Added support to launch image when Windows drive sharing fails
- Detects if a new version is available for download (necessary as protocol versions are hard-coded)
- Detects IP address of docker host when running Docker Toolbox
- Fixed bug that prevented image download in Windows 10
- Fixed bug that prevented file sharing to work with Docker Toolbox
- Added functionality to select which image version to download and / or update
