Narrative making

I did Covid analysis by following the nextstrain tutorial and successfully created auspice based visualization “Result.json” file. I can open and check the same in my localhost.

I want to make narrative as described in tutorial but not understand properly.

I make a “narrative.md” file which look like this


title:Covid Analysis
author: “ME”
Year:“2021”
dataset:“http://localhost:4000/Covid?d=tree
abstract:“This is Covid Ananlysis Result”


then I ran
auspice view --datasetDir dataset/ --narrativeDir narratives/
the error is “Failed to read Covid_root-sequnec.json”
what I am missing?
however
auspice view --datasetDir dataset/

running perfect on my localhot

Hi @avrajit - thanks for reaching out, I think we can solve this with a few more details from you.

  • What is currently happening when you load your narrative? If you have this stored at narratives/narrative.md then you should be able to load http://localhost/narrative. Could you post any console errors / terminal messages to help us here?
  • The message of “Failed to read Covid_root-sequence.json” is inconsequential in this situation.
  • What dataset do you wish to visualise? You indicate you’re dataset is dataset/Result.json but the URL in your narrative (http://localhost:4000/Covid) will be using dataset/Covid.json.
  • In your narrative.md you’ll need at least a paragraph of content (currently you only have the frontmatter). Here’s an example:

Hi James,
Thanks for your response. here is my terminal output

I understand your point. But I am following this tutorial Writing a Narrative — Nextstrain documentation

which is instructing add the local host address where your auspice result is running.

Is there any tutorial how to make narrative for nextstrain auspice result? please share

It looks like you’ve written a narrative narratives/covidNarrative.md – what happens when you load that narrative in your locally running auspice? I’m not sure what is not working from your messages. The tutorial you linked to is the best example to follow currently.

in my terminal

the error is

verbose] Error: ENOENT: no such file or directory, open ‘/home/avc/Covid_result_Nextstrain/auspice/Covid_root-sequence.json’

What this mean? what is root-sequence.json?
