There's two aspects to iRODS and Galaxy. Firstly, there is the Galaxy
object store which can store objects in iRODS. This is entirely hidden from
the user and they have no idea that their datasets are in iRODS. Some work
on that happened earlier in this year, see:
Then there is the question of iRODS import/export. See this thread from
earlier this year: http://dev.list.galaxyproject.org/iRODS-td4669076.html -
Iyad Kandalaft (http://www.goc411.ca/en/8192/Iyad-Kandalaft) mentioned some
future work on import/export. As part of the B3Africa project some
colleagues of ours are also investigating iRODS import/export. I think it
might be useful to make a GitHub issue describing the problem and have
people comment on there.
I had a brief look at the iRODS python client library and it seems to be in
a relatively early state of development (
https://github.com/irods/python-irodsclient) but it is definitely usable.
