|This code has been put under version control in the project Pymol-script-repo|
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.
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.
Example of use
reinitialize import pymol2glmol fetch 1TQN, async=0 preset.pretty_solv("1TQN") select heme, organic pymol2glmol 1TQN import webbrowser webbrowser.open("1TQN.html")
GLmol runs on newer versions of Firefox, Chrome, Safari or Opera.
Internet Explorer is not supported because IE doesn't implement WebGL.
GLmol also runs on Sony Ericsson's Android devices which support WebGL.
Support for Firefox Mobile is currently underway.
Reportedly, GLmol also runs on WebGL enabled safari in iOS.
If you see only black screen and you are using
- Internet Explorer: sorry. IE doesn't support WebGL.
- Firefox (version 4 or later): try force enable WebGL.
- Chrome: try force enable WebGL.
- Safari: enable WebGL.
Fix explained for Mint 12, gnome shell 3, chrome 16
Install menu editor, and run it
sudo apt-get install alacarte sudo alacarte
Locate internet menu. Edit the "Google Chrome" entry from->to
/opt/google/chrome/google-chrome %U /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome --enable-webgl %U
Then find out what handles your text/html, and edit that .desktop file.
