Qresp | Organizer

Qresp | Organizer is a software to configure the parent folder containing a collection of folders where each paper content is organized and stored. An example of parent folder is reported in the figure below (paper_collection).


How to create a parent folder

  • Super-user privileges may facilitate this step but are not mandatory.
  • Download the qresp-config-v1.0.tar.gz file and run
pip install qresp_config-v1.0.tar.gz
  • Or using pip
pip install qresp_config
  • Run qresp_config to create the parent folder, for e.g. paper_collection which will host paper content of user(s) and generate a config file(qresp.ini).
qresp_config collection <folder_name> [<path>]
  • The qresp_config script will ask the user to identify an http service path, Globus service path & Git service. These paths will generate the qresp.ini file. An example of the file content is the following
ishttpservice = Y
isglobusservice = Y
isgitservice = Y



globus_service_path is a non mandatory field, however the http_service_path is needed for the Qresp | Explorer to explore your paper contents.

How to organize a paper content

pip install qresp_config-v1.0.tar.gz
  • Initialize qresp_config to create a folder with the paper name inside the paper_collection folder. If a git service is running qresp.py creates an additional paper_name.git folder.
cd paper_collection #parent folder hosting all user(s) papers.
qresp_config paper <paper_name> [<path>] #creates empty folders with the users paper name.
  • Populate the content of the paper folder.

If git service is running,

git clone ssh://<username>@<servername>:<path>.git


scp <source> <destination>
