BEAT supports libraries that can be used to organize commonly used functions. Instead of re-implementing every function from scratch, you can reuse functions already implemented by other users and published in the form of BEAT libraries. Similarly, you can create and publish your own libraries of functions that you consider may be useful to other users. For more information see the “Libraries” section of “Getting Started with BEAT” in BEAT documentation.
Usage of libraries in encouraged in the BEAT platform. Besides saving you time and effort, this also promotes reproducibility in research.
You can access the Libraries section from your home-page on BEAT by
User Resources tab and selecting
Libraries from the
drop-down list. You should see a page similar to that shown below:
This page shows you all the libraries you have access to, on the platform. You can use the Search-Box and the Privacy filters to limit your search to your specific requirements.
9.2. Deleting a Library¶
To delete an existing library, click on the red cross in the top right region. If a library is already being used in any experiment, the experiment should first be deleted, before the library can be deleted. Once deleted, your library cannot be restored.
