VISPA (Visual Physics Analysis) is a web-platform that enables users to work on any SSH reachable resource using just their web-browser. It is used successfully in research and education for HEP data analysis.
The emerging JupyterLab is an ideal choice for a comprehensive, browser-based, and extensible work environment and we seek to unify it with the efforts of the VISPA project. The primary objective is to provide the user with the freedom to access any external resources at their disposal, while maintaining a smooth integration of preconfigured ones including their access permissions. Additionally, specialized HEP tools, such as native format data browsers (ROOT, PXL), are being migrated from VISPA- to JupyterLab-extensions as well.
We present these concepts and their implementation progress.
