I am happy to introduce you to the new Dials User Interface (DUI) for CCP4.
DUI is a graphical user interface that is designed to make data processing with DIALS more user-friendly and efficient. A key feature is a full history tree that keeps track of all steps of processing. Every position in the tree represents the execution of a DIALS command line with full record of the user-supplied parameters, and the results, which can be inspected with several visualisation tools. At any step, the user can either fork, proceed to the next command or navigate to another step without loss of information. This ability to keep track of different branches of data processing gives the user freedom to explore different hypotheses, such as the space group of the crystal.
DUI is intended to be intuitive and immediately useful across a wide range of user expertise. Beginners learning about the integration process with DIALS will benefit from the ease-of-use of the GUI and the visualisation tools. Experts retain full control of the underlying DIALS programs and can use the history tree to test different ideas quickly.
DUI does not have a launcher from ccp4i2 yet, but you can launch it by just typing dui from your terminal. I would recommend to cd to the directory with your images first. And of course have updated CCP4 to the latest version.
