Developer installation

OMERO.web depends on If you want a developer installation of, replace pip install omero-py with instructions at

For a development installation we recommend creating a virtualenv with the following setup (example assumes python3.6 but you can create and activate the virtualenv using any compatible Python):

python3.6 -mvenv venv
. venv/bin/activate
pip install zeroc-ice==3.6.5
pip install omero-py          # OR dev install (see above)
git clone
cd omero-web
pip install -e .

This will install OMERO.web into your virtualenv as an editable package, so any edits to source files should be reflected in your installation.

Note some omero-web tests may not run when this module and/or omero-py are installed in editable mode.

Running tests

Unit tests are located under the test directory and can be run with pytest.

Integration tests

Integration tests are stored in the main repository (ome/openmicroscopy) and depend on the OMERO integration testing framework. Reading about Running and writing tests in the OMERO documentation is essential.

Release process

This repository uses bump2version to manage version numbers. To tag a release run:

$ bumpversion release

This will remove the .dev0 suffix from the current version, commit, and tag the release.

To switch back to a development version run:

$ bumpversion --no-tag [major|minor|patch]

specifying major, minor or patch depending on whether the development branch will be a major, minor or patch release. This will also add the .dev0 suffix.

Remember to git push all commits and tags.


Following omero-web release, need to update and release omero-web-docker.


OMERO.web is released under the AGPL.
