This is my first attempt on Open Science and this diary will store all the ups and downs of the process. InFasta is a software idea I had a couple of years ago, a open-source program that would do whatever you want to a FASTA file (or multiple files).
It started as a C++/wxWidgets package, but time run out of me and I haven’t been able to continue developing it. Now it will resurface as a Python/wxPython cross-platform application, fully open source. This time I will have Keith Hughitt along the way, and we are going to prove (or not) if Python has batteries included.
We already decided some of the functionality but to make this as actual Open Science project, the community input is more than desired. We don’t think we will publish it, but have the intention to create a lightweight cross-platform open-source package that can be useful for at least on researcher out there.
