Please place your PyMOL script requests here. A few other people might have the same request and someone might just code it up for free (viz. all these other scripts). There are no guarantees that someone will write your script, but it doesn't hurt asking.


Example text of what the new awesome script is supposed to do in PyMOL. Consider posting some contact information, so once the script is posted you are apprised.

List of Requested Scripts

Dang Reader

It would be nice if PyMOL could read in and visualize the Dangle ( colon delimited output or be scripted to reproduce the actual data itself for visualization.

Instruction request

Would it be possible to add short instructions to category page for new users how to run scripts in pymol...(?)

Maybe this helps: Running_Scripts (I didn't dare to edit the nice yellow table :-) ) --Karo 11:19, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

I created a github for the pymol scripts. I think this is a good way to to collect and enlarge the collection of scripts. The repo is public accessible so contribute. If you need help on git just write me an email.
