Quick start guide

Getting started with easy-import

## GenomeHubs easy-import has been incorporated as a core component of [GenomeHubs](http://genomehubs.org)[1], which provide a Dockerised solution to setting up a custom [Ensembl](http://ensembl.org) genome browser with a [SequenceServer](http://sequenceserver.com) BLAST server and [h5ai](https://larsjung.de/h5ai/) downloads server. A guide to running easy-import (in an EasyImport Docker container) as part of a complete GenomeHubs setup is available at [genomehubs.gitbooks.io](https://genomehubs.gitbooks.io/genomehubs/content/) and is the recommended place for new users to start. The pages on this site provide a more complete description of the available configuration options for the easy-import scripts.
