Upload a task from lab.js
To export a task in Open Lab, please select the option Upload to Open Lab... in the builder interface. After receiving a confirmation you will be redirected to the Open Lab page. You will see a form for adding a new task that will be filled with information from lab.js. When you first join Open Lab, the form contains fields to register a new account by entering an email address and a password. The procedure is simple and fast, as shown here:
A dashboard with all publicly viewable tasks gives you quick access to the range of tasks already running in Open Lab. You can try the task by running it or, if you want to see the code behind it, download the json file, go to the lab.js builder and open the file there.
It is a separate dashboard for the tasks you have added. It is empty at the beginning, but will be filled with your tasks. After you have added your first task, you can run the task, edit it, download the json file or delete the task using shortcut buttons on the task card.
Adding a new task is straightforward. Enter the name and description of the task, select the json file, and add a cover photo, if you wish. Tags are not necessary, but can help other researchers to find your task. At the end, choose how the task should be displayed. Public tasks are available to other researchers so they can see, run them and download the json file. If you don’t want to share your task yet, make it private so that only you and your participants can see it. After saving, your task will appear on “My tasks” page.
