Application purpose

Jeff Gray's lab wrote an awesome tool to let you watch live Rosetta trajectories in PyMOL. It's like the graphics viewer but even awesomer.

How to use it

  1. Open pymol
  2. run /path/to/rosetta/src/python/bindings/
  3. Start a Rosetta run with the flag -show_simulation_in_pymol X, where X is how many seconds pass between PyMOL updates. 5 is default; low values may overload your computer.
