WENDI: Web-Exploration of Numerical Data Interactive

WENDI is a portal that provides cloud access to your own ipython notebook and terminal environment for computing, data gathering and analysis.

Introduction

WENDI is a portal that provides cloud access to your own ipython notebook and terminal environment for computing, data gathering and analysis. It uses Docker virtualization(https://www.docker.com) and the Jupyterhub notebook server.

We find that the following combinations of browsers and OS work best: Mac OS and Linux: Chrome, Windows: Firefox

Access

Please contact Falk Herwig if you would like to use Wendi. Access to the WENDI platform is by using your GitHub account.

About

The Wendi platform is developed and maintained by the Computational Stellar Astrophysics (CSA) group  in collaboration with CANFAR, the Canadian Advanced Network for Astronomy.

An initial version has been developed as part of aCANFAR  Canarie project. Its goal was to provide remote ipython notebook, web-based analysis access to the NuGrid nucleosynthesis data.

WENDI has been expanded in 2016 to accommodate the needs of the PPMstar collaboration between the LCSE at the University of Minnesota and CSA at UVic. This extension was part of a NSF JINA-CEE project in which both groups are participating, and supported by the NSF CDS&E program.
