Is it possible to use URL hyperlinks in Key-Value pairs?

Is it possible to use URL hyperlinks in Key-Value pairs (MapAnnotation)?

I could not, but the readme file of OMERO.mapr shows apparent hyperlinks (text in blue), so I wonder if it's possible or not. https://github.com/ome/omero-mapr

Mapr overrides one of the webclient templates to make hyperlinks into links: https://github.com/ome/omero-mapr/blob/ ... al.js.html
It's not part of the standard OMERO.web. If you've got a test system you could try installing mapr even if you don't need most of the functionality?

Thanks. We discussed the installation of OMERO.mapr before for other purposes, but this adds another advantage of using it.

I've noticed that, with standard OMERO.web, HTML tag like `<a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/gene/14415">14415</a>` does not work. However, if I use an URL like "https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/gene/14415" as a value, it does look blue and allows us to jump to the destination page.

Dear Kouichi,

Thank you, an interesting observation. We'll have a think about this one: I can see that it would be useful to recognize simple cases more usefully but we may shy from having users expect arbitrary HTML to be supported!

Cheers,
Mark

I agree. What to be supported and what to be not.

Thinking of the appearance of MapAnootation on OMERO.web, just supporting the HTML <a> tag makes sense to me. You probably don't want <b> or <i> or anything more complicated than that.

Does that (supporting <a> alone) accidentally convert a literal text to a hyperlink? Quite unlikely, but not guaranteed.

If it's just hyperlinks we could auto-link anything matching
Code: Select all
protocol://<non-space-characters>
and not bother with parsing html or any other markup?

Thanks.

protocol://<non-space-characters>


Looking at the screenshot I uploaded above (the Gene ID value), this I think is perhaps already working?

Maybe, it's good as it is, then? Just ask people to give up using <a> and instead ask to use full URLs?

Best,
Kouichi

You're right! It looks like if you add a URL to a map-annotation in OMERO.web it only becomes hyperlinked after a refresh, this is why I thought it wasn't implemented, so I think using the full URL is the best option. We'll certainly consider adding limited formatting (e.g. limited HTML tags, or markdown) in future though.
