Re: Refs to Conda - giving it a try after meeting Björn at a conference
Hallo Steffen & al.,
These are wonderful news. I'll be in the Paris Biohackathon, and I'll be happy to help taking this further.
I just met Björn from the Conda community over here at the GCB in
Heidelberg. Over some sweet cake we agreed that it would be good to
mutually reference our packages. And we find that it would be mutually
beneficial to develop some training material that references both conda
and Debian packages, allowing the focus to remain on the biology. The
idea is to allow for the smoothest possible transition from "Jugend
forscht!"-/hobby/student side projects to HPC environments and back,
like to explain results to the public. We had also some early thoughts
about how to help automating the exchange of links with some
inter-distributional bots, also involving the github-reinvented
bio.tools. Does anybody of folks reading this attend their upcoming
BioHackathon in Paris?
You are all up for this, right?
I saw Björn do first pull requests towards the mutual links and have
created a bunch on my own now - a* and b* should be complete. @Andreas,
could you please perform your magic on integrating that data with the
udd? And did I do the modification of the blends' task page correctly?
Many thanks and greetings,
