From a local copy of the repository:

$ git clone
$ cd nwb-web-gui
$ pip install .

2. Running

From command line shortcut:

$ nwbgui

From repository local copy:

$ python

NWB Web GUI by default runs on localhost:5000.

3. Running on docker container (referencing a local folder)

  • Change on config.ini file the NWB_GUI_ROOT_PATH to /usr/src/nwb_web_gui/files
  • build docker with:
$ docker build -t latest .
  • run the docker with:
$ docker run -it -p 5000:5000 -p 8866:8866 -v /host/path/to/filesFolder:/usr/src/nwb_web_gui/files <image_id>

4. Run NWB Web GUI for a specific NWB Converter

NWB Web GUI can be set to run with any specific NWB converter:

from nwb_web_gui import init_app
import os

# Set ENV variables for app
# Set root path from where to run the GUI
data_path = '/source_path'
os.environ['NWB_GUI_ROOT_PATH'] = data_path

# Set which NWB GUI pages should be displayed
os.environ['NWB_GUI_RENDER_CONVERTER'] = 'True'
os.environ['NWB_GUI_RENDER_VIEWER'] = 'True'
os.environ['NWB_GUI_RENDER_DASHBOARD'] = 'False'

# Choose NWB converter to be used
os.environ['NWB_GUI_NWB_CONVERTER_MODULE'] = 'my_lab_to_nwb'
os.environ['NWB_GUI_NWB_CONVERTER_CLASS'] = 'MylabNWBConverter'

# Choose port where the GUI will run. Default is 5000
port = 5000

print(f'NWB GUI running on localhost:{port}')
print(f'Data path: {data_path}')

# Initialize app
app = init_app()

# Run app
