Hello Peter

Thanks for the fast response. From reading around elsewhere I'd understood that 
using $PATH_TO_IMAGES was now deprecated? I think I tried it anyway and it 
didn't seem to help. But I might have missed something, so I'd be interested to 
know if it works for you.

Best wishes

Peter

It looks like something important is not showing in the best practise
website, special variable $PATH_TO_IMAGES as per the linked example:

.. image:: $PATH_TO_IMAGES/slop-glyph.png

Let me look into this,

Dear devs

I've been updating the <help> section for a locally developed tool and want
to include some images, but I've had some issues trying to see them when
testing locally.

I've followed the instructions outlined here:

https://github.com/galaxy-iuc/standards/blob/master/docs/best_practices/tool_xml.rst#including-images

(i.e. put the images files into a 'static/images/' subdir of the tool
directory and reference them using ".. image:: picture.png")

However when I load the tool into a Galaxy using "planemo serve ..." the
images fail to render: I just get a line of text with the image filename.
The same thing happens when I add the tool manually on our local server
(i.e. by adding a <tool file=...> reference to the tool XML in the
appropriate conf.xml file).

If I upload the same tool files to a toolshed and then install from there, I
do see the images rendered correctly.

I'm a bit baffled as to why there should be a difference. Is there an option
or setting I've missed to turn on the image rendering for non-shed-installed
tools? Or have I made some other mistake?

Thanks for your help,

Best wishes

Peter
