Galaxy API for Programmatic Access


Is there an API for accessing and changing your setup within Galaxy?

I would love to programmatically turn on and off our staging server to save some money.


Unfortunately there is no such an API.
Right, That would be great if we can do a semi-auto scaling.


I don’t know if it’s against the terms of service, but technically you could probably use whatever API they use for their dashboard.



Your best bet is to run a VM, and simply run meteor --production

That will give you a pretty good idea of your staging server.


While meteor run --production simulates the minification of the code, it is quite different from a production build and unsuitable as staging env, which should mirror your prod env as close as possible. Read some more about it in the guide
