Mission Text Editor Walkthrough


When managing multiple computational jobs or Missions in Galileo, it is sometimes necessary to change a few parameters or settings before re-running a simulation or calculation. This just got much easier with Galileo’s built-in text editor, which allows you to edit text files associated with a Galileo Mission. With the text editor, it is no longer necessary to switch back and forth between editing files on your local desktop and then re-uploading them in Galileo.
This short walkthrough will show you how to access and use the text editor.

Getting Started

The text editor allows you to edit any plaintext files associated with a Galileo Mission. To access the editor, start on the Missions tab and find the Mission you wish to edit. Click on the “Update Mission” button.

You will then see all of the Mission’s contents. From here, you can add, edit, or delete any of the files or folders. To edit one of the files, simply highlight the file name by clicking on it and then click the “View” button to the right above the Mission’s contents.

Using the Editor

Clicking the “View” button will open an interface allowing you to view the contents of the text file. To begin editing, click the “Edit” button in the upper right corner of the interface.

You will now have options to change the language syntax highlighting mode, the font size, and the editor’s color theme (light or dark). In addition, you can toggle “Diff Mode”, which will track any changes you make to the file with special highlighting.

Once you are satisfied with your changes, you can save them by clicking the “Save” button in the upper right corner of the screen.

The Mission now contains the updated file, and you can immediately run the job.
