Developing Tools for

By Michael McLennan

The nanoHUB lets you access simulation tools online via an ordinary web browser. Where do the tools come from? From you--hundreds of you throughout the world who are developing nanotechnology modeling tools. Anyone can upload their own code onto nanoHUB and publish a tool for a limited group of colleagues or for the entire world to use. The code can be kept protected or given out as open source.

This tutorial shows you exactly how to do that, starting with the tool registration form, taking you through the process of uploading code into a Subversion repository, developing and testing your code within a workspace, and finally, approving and publishing your tool. This is a good starting point for all new tool developers, to help them understand the overall process.
