OMERO.scripts are the OME version of plugins, allowing you to extend the functionality of OMERO. Official core OMERO.scripts come bundled with every OMERO.server release but you can also add new scripts you have written yourself or found via the repositories forked from ome/omero-user-scripts.
Uploading and managing scripts¶
OMERO.scripts user guide describes the workflow for developing and uploading scripts as an Admin. Any scripts you add to the lib/scripts/ directory as a server admin will be considered ‘trusted’ and automatically detected by OMERO, allowing them to be run on the server from the clients or command line by any of your users.
Once in the directory, scripts cannot be automatically updated and any additional ones will be lost when you upgrade your server installation. Therefore, we recommend you use a Github repository to manage your scripts. If you are not familiar with using git, you can use the GitHub app for your OS (available for Mac and Windows but not Linux). The basic workflow is:
fork our omero-user-script repository
clone it in your lib/scripts directory
cd lib/scripts; git clone email@example.com:YOURGITUSERNAME/omero-user-scripts.git YOUR_SCRIPTS
save the scripts you want to use into the appropriate sub-directory in your cloned location lib/scripts/YOUR_SCRIPTS
Then when you upgrade your OMERO.server installation, provided your Github
repository is up to date with all your latest script versions (i.e. all your
local changes are committed), you just need to repeat the
git clone step.
Those scripts will then be automatically detected by your new server
installation and available for use from the clients and command line as
