ChemServer™ is a software module that makes it easy to add structure search to websites. Both Ruby and PHP versions are available. ChemServer is ideal for small product catalogs and any other website whose users need to search for information by chemical structure. Collections of up to 10,000 structures can be searched using SimpleSearch.
The software consists of three components: a wrapper written in either Ruby or PHP; an executable file; and a test suite. ChemServer requires no modification to database software and works well given a standard MySQL installation. Databases containing chemical structures encoded as either SMILES or molfile representations can be used.
ChemServer comes with two hours of individualized training that will guide your designated Web developer through the process of installing and using the software.
