RFC Name : QuickStart Plugin

Editor(s): Mike Smoot

Date: 2/8/2011

Status: …


The goal of the QuickStart Plugin is to provide a splash screen that appears when Cytoscape starts and that prompts users in basic Cytoscape tasks like importing networks and attributes.


Cytoscape has many mechanisms for getting data network and attribute data into Cytoscape, however loading networks and mapping attributes onto networks is still challenging, especially for novice users. It is particularly difficult to map network identifiers to attributes.
