Hello,

There isn't a file editor per se, but the tools in the group "Text Manipulation", "Filter and Sort", and " Join, Subtract and Group" can often be used to modify files. You can also add in a few lines using the "Upload File" tool by just typing in text into the entry box. This become a dataset that you can work with using the above tools to add to your existing data (add a few lines that you filtered out - in effect replacing them, etc). Once you work out a process that modifies your files, save that into a workflow for future use if it is something you will be doing again, to avoid repetitive work.


Hopefully this helps,

Jen

Is it possible to use ACE or some other type of in line editor to modify files in Galaxy? Like if we had a tool that accepted as a parameter a file written in a homegrown modeling language, is there any way to update that file without downloading and re-uploading? Has anyone seen or done anything like this?

Thanks,
