API for multi-file upload

burdettn
Hi,
    I really like the multi-file upload tool in the latest version of Galaxy. Is there an API for it so we can send files via a script rather than using the user interface? If so are there any examples?

Thanks
Neil

Hello Neil,

  The newer uploader targets the tool's API with in browser JavaScript
- so bioblend say targets the same API with its tool client
(https://github.com/afgane/bioblend/blob/master/bioblend/galaxy/tools/__init__.py#L104).
I imagine you could get a similar degree of parallelism by splitting
out a few Python threads and uploading files in parallel. I think it
is a testament to Aysam's great UX design that it feels like something
fundamentally different should be happening under the covers - but I
don't think it is.

Hope this helps.

-John
