BioQ is a web application based on LAMP (Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP) architecture. The code can be found our Subversion server.
This shows roughly how the key components of the web application interact.
Files and Directories
The "help" link in the top right.
The BioQ main page.
Used for those PHP programs that require sessions.
This needs to be saved as config.php and then revised according to the particular installation. This is basically the case for any file in Subversion prefixed with "template_".
Contains some utilities for setting up MySQL.
Contains the perl programs used by BioQ, such as bioq_query.pl and dbdoc_util.pl.
Contains code for BioQ::Query features. The web interface is contained in submit.php. This uses query.php via an Ajax call. The query.php script then call bioq_query.pl that does all the database work.
Note that some of these modules also require their own CSS files.
jQuery UI is an extension of jQuery that provides custom themes and a suite of user interface features. jQuery UI is built into BioQ by going to their download site, selecting a theme and which widgets you will need, and then downloading the tarball generated by their web tool. The current configuration is as follows:
Version: jQuery UI 1.8.2 for jQuery 1.4.2 (the current version as of 2011-07-20 is jQuery UI 1.8.14 and jQuery 1.6.2)
The theme is based on "humanity", specifically it's "humanity-mod-2" as of 2011-07-20.
The modification to the stock humanity theme are
Change Font Family to "MS Trebuchet" in "Font Settings"
*UI Core: *Core, Widget (I think)
selectable: was being used in the query page (query/submit.php), but maybe no longer?
autocomplete: used in the search bar
button: used in many places
dialog: I think this is being used in messages, such when a query is executed with no data
tabs: used on the query page, such as Simple Query/Custom MySQL Query
jqGrid is a jQuery plugin for displaying interactive tables.
Version: as of 2011-07-20 we're using jqGrid 3.7.1
Theming: Note that jqGrid takes advantage of the jQuery UI theme.
