Build Status

WebOOT

WebOOT is a ROOT viewer for the web.

Fed up with writing plot scripts?

Introduction

WebOOT aims to make it easy to make navigate between ROOT files and do advanced manipulation on many plots simultaneously.

The first idea is that all plots should be addressable at a URL.

See the presentation at the ROOT Users Workshop 2013: Abstract, PDF

Prerequisites

To make WebOOT work, you need PyROOT, ImageMagick, pexpect and filemagic.

Copy & paste these commands into a shell to check:

$ python -c "import ROOT"
$ convert -h
$ python -c "import magic"

Installation

This is a simple way to install WebOOT:

git clone git://github.com/rootpy/WebOOT
cd WebOOT/
python setup.py develop --user

Usage

$ cd my/lovely/plots
$ ~/.local/bin/weboot

You will get a message on your screen that looks like this:

Starting subprocess with file monitor
Starting server in PID 31840.
serving on http://0.0.0.0:6543

Copy & paste the URL into the web browser of your choice and follow the browse link ( or go directly to http://0.0.0.0:6543/browse/ ).
