Visualizing large high-dimensional datasets.
For a complete overview and detailed installation instructions for this project, please visit the project website.
This is the front-end of the FUn framework. A reference implementation visualizing over 10 million compunds exported from the SureChEMBL database can be found at faerun.gdb.tools. The backend can be found in its own github repository.
The best way to get started with Faerun is to pull the respective Docker Image.
docker run -d -p 80:80 --name faerun daenuprobst/faerun
This will use the default configuration. Using the default configuration means, that faerun will connect to the default services provided by our research group (http://www.gdb.unibe.ch). If you wish to provide your own service (e.g. containing other databases) you can provide a custom server address using the environment variable
docker run -d -p 80:80 -e SERVER=ws://example.ch/underdark --name faerun daenuprobst/faerun
See how to deploy your own backend server here.
If you wish to change more than just the server providing the data sets, you will either have to clone this repository and build the app and then create your own docker image or you can run docker using the following command and edit the configuration file on the host
docker run -d -p 80:80 -v /your/host/dir:/usr/share/nginx/html --name faerun daenuprobst/faerun
All application files will then be stored in the directory
/your/host/dir on your host and you are able to make changes to the configuration file
- nodejs, npm
- gulp (install using
npm install -g gulp)
In order to (hack and) build faerun, first clone this repository
git clone https://github.com/reymond-group/faerun.git and then run
npm install in the folder where you cloned faerun into (default:
faerun). To build faerun run
gulp, which will create the distribution folder
dist, the contents of which you can copy and serve on any web server such as nginx, IIS or apache.
- If you are cannot get the container running after building it yourself on a Windows machine, you might have hidden windows characters in the
entrypoint.shscript. Please remove them using
dos2unix.exe(http://waterlan.home.xs4all.nl/dos2unix.html) and try to run the container again.
