Tractoflow with Docker

Hi. I’m new with neuroimaging and programming and I’m trying to run Tractoflow with Docker using Mac OS (32GB RAM). I’m following the instructions from the Tractoflow Documentation:

  • Installation:
    docker pull scilus/docker-tractoflow:2.1.1

  • Launching Tractoflow:
    nextflow run tractoflow/main.nf --root Neuroimages --dti_shells “0 1000” --fodf_shells “0 1000” -with-docker scilus/docker-tractoflow:2.1.1 -resume

I’m getting the following error:
N E X T F L O W ~ version 20.10.0
Pulling nextflow-io/tractoflow …
Remote resource not found: https://api.github.com/repos/nextflow-io/tractoflow/contents/main.nf

Please, if appreciate it if anyone could help me.

Hi @dubergonzoni,

Did you downloaded TractoFlow ? You can do it using this command:

wget https://github.com/scilus/tractoflow/releases/download/2.1.1/tractoflow-2.1.1.zip && unzip tractoflow-2.1.1.zip

After that, you can launch the pipeline with the same command that you used but replacing the path of the tractoflow code. You command line will looks like:

nextflow run PATH_TO_TRACTOFLOW/main.nf --root Neuroimages --dti_shells “0 1000” --fodf_shells “0 1000” -with-docker scilus/docker-tractoflow:2.1.1 -resume

Hi @Guillaumeth,

I forgot to mention that the installation is being a problem, sorry.
I’m getting the error “Failed to connect to github.com port 443: Operation timed out”

I can’t fix this error. I don’t know if it is about the network security of the Hospital or something else. Please, could you help me to think about a possible solution?

Thank you.

Hi @dubergonzoni,

I think it is a security issue on your side. Github is widely used by the community and the command to install tractoflow is often used on our side too. So, my guess is that the hospital filter websites for security purposes.

Thanks

You can try to download the code here: https://github.com/scilus/tractoflow/releases/tag/2.1.1

Download the zip file: tractoflow-2.1.1.zip

It worked for me. At least the code is running right now.

Thank you so much!

Hi @Guillaumeth,

My code is running since yesterday, with just one participant, e.g:
Tractoflow_test (main folder)
S3 (subfolder)

  • dwi.nii.gz
  • t1.nii.gz
  • bvec
  • bval

It’s not progressing (0%):

Below is my code and wat the terminal is showing:

Dear @dubergonzoni,

Sorry for the delay, do you still have the same issue? If so, can you send us a link to the nextflow log please?

Thank you.
