Testing SmartScope without the microscope

It is possible to test the SmartScope installation and setup by running the workflow without the microscope.

The initial database provided with SmartScope should already contain a fake_scope and fake_detector for selection.

Selecting this scope during a session setup will pick random images from a bank of images.

Setting up the image bank

You can download an initital image bank to which you can add your own images.

To download:

wget docs.smartscope.org/downloads/smartscope_testfiles.tar.gz
tar -xvf smartscope_testfiles.tar.gz

Podman/Docker Installation

Mount the location of smartscope_testfiles to /mnt/fake_scope/.


Change the TEST_FILES enviroment variable to the smartscope_testfiles location.
