    33The Rappture toolkit provides the basic infrastructure for a large class of scientific applications, letting scientists focus on their core algorithm when developing new simulators.  Here's a [http://www.nanohub.org/images/tool/molctoy/molctoy.swf demo] of a Rappture interface for a Matlab script which simulates conduction through a molecule.  This interface was generated automatically by Rappture, based on a description of the tool inputs and outputs.

    5 Rappture also makes it easy to put a friendly, interactive interface on existing legacy applications, without having to rewrite the code.  For example, the [http://bwrc.eecs.berkeley.edu/Classes/IcBook/SPICE/ SPICE circuit simulator] has been around since 1972.  You can now run [http://www.nanohub.org/resources/227 SPICE on the nanoHUB] via a simple Rappture interface.  This shows the power of taking a powerful, batch-processing tool, and making it more interactive and accessible.
