Customizations & Custom Properties

Custom Properties

You can easily add your own properties to Galaxy Modeler projects, giving you the freedom to customize them as you wish. These properties can be displayed on the diagram and in the user interface, making it convenient for you to modify their values in the side panel. Additionally, you can smoothly integrate them into HTML reports and utilize them to create your own scripts or other outputs.

Side Panel & Template Based Output

In your templates you can write a code that will be generated only for the currently selected object. Thus, it is not necessary to generate the output for the whole project and then search for the file with the generated code. Just select a type, input, interface or other object in the diagram and view your own template based script in the sidebar.

Templates Structure

When you open the templates folder, you will see a simple structure. To create a custom template, just create one simple json file describing the template and one hbs file containing the template written in Handlebars. Writing templates is easy and based on a well-known templating system. There is no need to reinvent the wheel!

Comfortable Development

In rare cases, you may make a mistake when creating a template. In this case, the Handlebars templating system will display an error instead of the generated content. This way you can immediately see where to look and there is no need to restart Galaxy Modeler at all.

Our goal is to make your work comfortable and pleasant even if some modification of the templates is required.
