Add Rapture to Your Software Development

Rappture is the Rapid APPlication infrastrucTURE, a toolkit that you can use to accelerate the development of scientific simulation tools. Scientists developing a code are often led astray by all of the elements surrounding their code. They end up developing their own command language for input, their own format for output, their own graphics for visualization, their own user interface, and so forth. Solutions vary wildly from tool to tool, with very little regard for human factors engineering, so the resulting tools are often difficult for anyone but the original author to use.
