Create new Webclient for Grider

Hi All,

I am new to Girder. We are planning to implement a new web client application like histomicsui.


  • Web client applications should be run individually, not like a plugin (histomicsui).
  • We can use girder API to fetch the service (‘’)
  • Need to build an image viewer.

How can I import the below modules, unable to find the npm install

  1. @girder/large_image_annotation
  2. @girder/slicer_cli_web/
  3. @girder/large_image/

can you please share the any example or documentation for the above topics.

The modules you mention are part of their parent python packages (large_image, large_image_annotation, and slicer_cli_web), and are in those repos. If you don’t want to use the girder 3 build process for a web client, then you’ll have to refer to those packages via either local paths or from the git repos (I’d have to look up how to do either of those).

You can serve your own web client either by adding static files to where Girder serves such files or by adding an appropriate path resolution (e.g., use nginx to convert a path on the girder server to reference whatever you are using to server your client).
