Configuration optionsΒΆ

A CATMAID instance an be configured mainly through the settings.py file, which is located in the django/projects/mysite directory. Along with settings_base.py (which is not supposed to be edited) the instance configuration is defined. Settings defined in settings_base.py can be overriden in settings.py. Below is an explanation of all available settings.

NODE_LIST_MAXIMUM_COUNT
The maximum number of nodes that should be retrieved for a bounding box query as it is used to render tracing data. If set to None, no limit will be applied which can be slighly faster if node limiting isn’t necessary in most cases.
NODE_PROVIDERS
This variable takes a list of node provider names, which are iterated during a node query as long as no result data is found. The next provider, if any, is only used if the current node provider either doesn’t match the request or decides it can’t provide a useful answer. An entry can either by a single node provider name (e.g. “postgis2d”) or a tuple (name, options) to pass in additional options for a node provider. Possible node provider names are: postgis2d, postgis2dblurry, postgis3d ans postgis3dblurry. In addition to these, cache table can be configured, which allows the use of the following node proviers: cached_json, cached_json_text, cached_msgpack.
