Cryosparc tool - installation & usage

Dear colleagues,

I want to import dmoc from SerialEM to a usable XML format.
(BTW. It is a good idea for future improvement for CS to be able to read mdoc as well)

Import ImageShift from .mdoc files (SerialEM) - Scripting - CryoSPARC Discuss

Installing the cryosparc tool from
Getting Started — cryosparc-tools

it is not well clear to me how to start using it.

Firstly, could you please prompt me on how I can run the cryosparc tool after installation?
Secondly, do I understand correctly that the topic here
Import ImageShift from .mdoc files (SerialEM) - Scripting - CryoSPARC Discuss

Is the method now updated, as well as the script needed to import ImageShift from .mdoc files (SerialEM)?
cs_jiffies/ at main · ccgauvin94/cs_jiffies · GitHub

If so, could you please prompt on the correct usage of the last script with cryosparc tools?

Thank you.

Kind regards,

  • write a python script and, from inside the python virtual environment, run it like
    python /path/to/
  • or also install inside your python virtual environment a python notebook application, like jupyterlab, then write and run a notebook.
  • or …
