Empress - Barplots section of the main menu not showing up


I am following the empress tutorial (GitHub - biocore/empress: A fast and scalable phylogenetic tree viewer for microbiome data analysis) but I don't see the barplot section in the main menu of my empress output empress-tree.qzv (1.6 MB)

Am I missing something?

Thanks in advance!

ps: @fedarko I would really appreciate to hear your thoughts on this =).

Hi @JoaoGabrielMoraes,

From looking at the provenance of this QZV file, the version of Empress used didn't support barplots yet (version 0.2.0.dev0). (Barplots were added in version 0.3.0 -- see the release notes here for details.)

Re-downloading the latest version of Empress (and then re-generating a QZV) should let you use the barplot functionality.

I think the commands to re-download Empress would look something like:

pip install git+https://github.com/biocore/empress.git
qiime dev refresh-cache

You can check that the version installed is correct by then running qiime empress --version, which should hopefully show you 0.3.0-dev.


Hi @fedarko,

I’ll do that. Thank you very much! :grin:
