Running Examples

Or you can start the Web-Application with the server command:

cloudgene server

The webservice is available on http://localhost:8082. Please use username admin and password admin1978 to login.

You can run installed applications on the commandline with the run command followed by the application id and the parameters. For example:

cloudgene run print-text --message "Hello World"


Commands and Bash

cloudgene run print-text --message "Hello World"
cloudgene run print-text-to-file --message "Hello World"

More complex tasks using Java or Groovy

cloudgene run hello-groovy
cloudgene run hello-groovy --name Lukas


You need Docker installed on your computer to run this example. This workflow starts a Docker container containg vcf-tools and calculates the allele frequency of the provided VCF file:

cloudgene run vcf-tools --vcf vcf-file.vcf.gz
You can’t perform that action at this time.
