Finding the List of Available Tools

The tools — executables or binaries — that are available for use in the DE have been integrated by the CyVerse Support staff, based on user requests. Before requesting installation of a new tool, you should view the list of all available tools to make sure the tool and version isn't already available in the list. You can view the name of the tool's creator, a description of the tool, and the apps that currently use the tool.
