rcsb_browser 0.0.1

Command line browser for RCSB database

Latest Version: 0.1.0


A command line browser for RCSB data bank: you can either query the database for
keywords or download when ID is known. This version only downloads the pdb file
in tar.gz file.

In this example, only one result is fetched but if query is short then you might
end up getting thousands for results (though it will never print more than 100
results onto the console). A file in XML format is also saved which you can open
in some office-suite to see.

Once ID is known (e.g. 4l20 in this case), you can download the pdb file, by
using the --fetch (or -f) command.

$ rcsb_browser --fetch 4l20

It will download and store the file in current working directory.
