The goal of this project is to provide a high quality web portal for OAR. A web portal is an important feature to help users to get used with sophisticated supercomputing infrastructures, by hiding from them the complexities of the computational environment. Also, it helps administrators to simplify simple tasks on resources.

With OAR we use Monika and Gantt for monitoring jobs and visualization functionalities. We have a first version of a web portal developed during a previous Gsoc edition. Now we need to push this proof of concept to a production quality level.

Is is important to note that OAR has a REST API that provides most of the necessary features to build a web portal on top of it. This API should be used for this project.
