hyperglass is a modern network looking glass application. A looking glass is typically implemented by network service providers as a way of providing customers, peers, and partners with a way to easily view elements of, or run tests from the provider's network.
hyperglass is intended to make implementing a looking glass too easy not to do, with the lofty goal of improving the internet community at large by making looking glasses more common across autonomous systems of any size.

hyperglass is developed with the express intention of being free to the networking community.
However, the hyperglass demo does cost @checktheroads about $15/month for 3 Digital Ocean droplets. If you're feeling particularly helpful and want to help offset that cost, small donations are welcome.
- This project originally started as a fork of vraulsan's looking-glass project. The guts of the Flask components still remain from that project, but almost everything else has been rewritten. Nevertheless, the inspiration for building hyperglass came from here.
