Press the ‘q’ key, Control-C, or Control-D to quit. This view may no longer be accessible or work correctly after quitting.
So, I have to quit the whole qiime session every time, I want to see the results? Is that normal?
Hi @Lacona. Please try to refine your topics to one question whenever possible. It will make it easier for other forum users to answer them.
I think you may be confused about what’s happening here. You probably received that message after running qiime tools view demux-paired-end.qzv, not qiime demux summarize. A “QIIME 2 Session” isn’t really a thing that exists. Generally, when you run a QIIME 2 command, QIIME 2 runs until it is finished, and then it stops. Once it stops, QIIME 2 isn’t “on” any more. While it is running, you’ll notice that you don’t have access to the command prompt. Once it stops, you get control back.
qiime tools view is an exception to this rule. It opens a new browser tab in which to display your visualization. In order to do so, it needs to “serve” the data in your .qzv to the browser. Because it doesn’t know for how long you want to look at your .qzv, it just keeps serving the data up until you tell it to stop yourself. When you q, ctrl-c, etc, you are just telling your terminal to stop the qiime tools view process, so you can get back to your analysis.
