Extra menu-commands can be easily added to the Adun GUI using scripts. These extra commands appear under the ‘Scripts’ menu in the main-menu bar (see figure). Scripts are a way to rapidly add functionality to the program and enable users/developers to customize it with commands/operations they frequently use.
A number of fully functioning scripts are available in the Adun cvs in the Scripts/GUIScripts directory. To install them simply copy the *.st and *.plist files in that directory to $HOME/Library/Adun/Scripts/ (note: under linux use $HOME/GNUstep/Library). If you didn’t compile from source you can install the scripts in one step by running the following (requires CVS to be installed):
cvs -d:pserver:email@example.com:/var/cvs/adun export -d $HOME/Library/Adun/Scripts Adun/Scripts/GUIScripts/
Some of the tasks these scripts can perform are:
- Retrieve all the GO (Gene Ontology) terms for a system
- Get the Uniprot Sequence alignment for a system and provide a link to the relevant sequence page
- Output information on the energetics of a system
Note: The scripts under the WebServices submenu currently do not work on Linux.
If you want to create your own scripts see the Extending Adun with Scripts page.
