We are pleased to announce the first public release of Easotope! On the website you can find links to the software and also to video tutorials that explain what Easotope is and how to use it:
From that link you can find downloads to the executable and links to videos explaining how to use Easotope. To install Easotope in server mode, you will need to download both a server and a client. The installation of the server is documented in a file contained in the folder you download.
You can also operate in "client mode" only by setting up your database as a local file. However, this will limit your ability to access data from more than one computer.
If you have questions, we have set up a community email discussion list (email@example.com , to subscribe, subject: "subscribe"). But you are also welcome to send feedback and questions to this forum by responding to this thread if you prefer.
I hope that some of you will try Easotope and adopt it!
All the best,
Cedric and Devon
By the way, some of you have already asked me what file formats are supported into Easotope. Here are a few guidelines:
- If you use Isodat (.did files) with either a 3 or 6 collector configuration (CO2, clumped isotopes), you can drag and drop the files directly. This may work with other systems too by the way
- For any other format, the easiest is to import your data in a "java" style properties file. I have uploaded an example of such a file (http://www.carbonateresearch.com/filedepot_download/3150/59) for you to download. This is one acquisition file, so if you do n acquisition, you need to copy your data acquisition by acquisition in this file. As you can see, the Mv for the masses are included in the files, as well as a Java date. It is important to save your data with the correct date as all of the subsequent corrections are based on the time stamp of the file. You can use a Java date converter (e.g. http://www.timestampconvert.com/?go1=true&m=01&d=09&y=2016&hours=12&min=48&sec=22&Submit=++++++Convert+to+timestamp+++++&offset=5) for this, and copy-pase the time and date of the file acquisition in milisecond format.
If you want to use Easotope with a particular raw file currently not supported, the best is to email firstname.lastname@example.org for it to be included in a future release.
Just so everyone is aware, even if you have not yet registered to the esotope list: there is a new version of Easotope released last week, but it will require you to download the latest version at www.easotope.org, it will not automatically prompt you to go and download it. Devon is aware of this bug and it will be fixed in later version.
