SBOL Designer

SBOL designer allows you to visualize SBOL designs using SBOL visual icons, edit SBOL designs in a GUI, import genetic constructs from an SBOL parts registry, and save your design an SBOL file.

Running SBOL Designer stand-alone

SBOLDesigner requires Java 8 to be installed on your computer. To run SBOL designer, simply double click the jar file. If your OS does not support running Java applications by double clicking, you can run the designer from command-line by using the java -jar <jarFileName> command at a terminal where jarFileName will be the name of the SBOL Designer jar file you downloaded.


In order to build SBOLDesigner from source, type the following into a Windows shell or create an Eclipse Maven run configuration that has the following goals (excluding the "mvn") after cloning this repository: mvn clean install exec:java -Dexec.mainClass="com.clarkparsia.sbol.editor.SBOLDesignerStandalone" && mvn package
