Description

The kepler library skin should be reworked now that we're uploading KARs.
http://library.kepler-project.org/kepler/
Maybe we can just show the kar contents on the kar pages?

Ben mentioned it's not very useful as it is. See an example on his test server (if it's still there):

History

You can see the Browse the other examples I've uploaded here: http://fred.msi.ucsb.edu:8080/knb/
Sorry one of the "kar-20-no-doc" components should be named kar-20-with-doc -- i renamed the kar but not the workflow.

#2 Updated by Jing Tao almost 9 years ago

Here is the summary during our discussion (derik, ben and I):

1: Remove the broken image link
2. Add a section to display the content of kar (like the manifest file)
3. Display all workflow names, authors if the kar file have more than one workflows.

For search result page:

We need to Display all workflow names, authors and versions if the kar file have more than one workflows.

#3 Updated by ben leinfelder almost 9 years ago

For the display details page I'd imagine just looping through each karEntry and displaying it's information:
-name*
-type
-author (if moml)
-version (if moml)
*The name of the karEntry is probably the same as the entity name for a workflow moml entry. But for other types of karEntries we won't have an entity name - just the karEntry name.

#4 Updated by Jing Tao almost 9 years ago

Here are result discuss with ben:

The detail display of kar file will be:

Kar file name (download)
Workflow name 1 - author - version
Documentation
Parameters
derivedFrom fake
....
Workflow name 2 - author - version
Documentation
Parameters
derivedFrom fake
....
WorkflowRun.4.xml (org.kepler.util.WorkflowRun)
WorkflowRun.5.xml (org.kepler.util.WorkflowRun)
RIO.4.xml (ReortingInstance)
ROML.4.xml (ReportLayout)

The kar search result will be:

Kar component Author Version Download

If you are in the process of revamping this stylesheet and presentation, its probably worthwhile to also consider improving the presentation style. Please review some other sites that display workflows on the web, including:

MyExperiment:
Workflow: http://www.myexperiment.org/workflows/23.html
Resultset: http://www.myexperiment.org/tags/49.html?type=workflows

CrowdLabs:
Workflow: http://www.crowdlabs.org/vistrails/workflows/details/119/

I think the finish quality of the presentation on our workflow site could be improved significantly. We may not have time to tackle that now, but if you can make some gains during this revision that would be a major step forward.

Those pictures looks great. Thank matt for the information. However, our goal is very simpler - it can display the information of kar which contains multiple workflows. We just started this today and hope it will be done today as well. So we can patch the revision into the 1.9.3 release...

#7 Updated by Ilkay Altintas almost 9 years ago

The interface and the search query back end needs to allow more sophisticated queries than just search, e.g., ability to search an archive based on the contents of the workflow.

#8 Updated by Derik Barseghian almost 9 years ago

Jing's done this, we just need to wait for the kepler library metacat to be upgraded to change this to an ER and retarget.

#9 Updated by Jing Tao almost 9 years ago

The new kepler library server is up and the bug was closed. We also open a new bug 5177 for the enhancement of workfow presentation.
