A script to export a scene in pymol to GLmol. GLmol is a molecular viewer for Web browsers written in WebGL/Javascript.

With pymol2glmol, you can publish your pymol scene to a Web page. Visitors can rotate, zoom the molecule on the page.

Compared to export of polygon coordinates (VRML or Object3D), the published web page contain only atomic coordinates so that the file size is much smaller and visitors can even change representation.

Examples and script can be downloaded from my web page.

This script uses cmd.get_session to extract which representations is enabled on each part of the molecule. I think this technique is useful for many purposes, for example, writing exporters, copying representations between aligned structures, etc.

Comments and suggestions are welcome.

Best regards,

Example of use

import pymol2glmol

fetch 1TQN, async=0
select heme, organic

pymol2glmol 1TQN
