A workspace is a Linux desktop in your browser. It provides access to NCN's Rappture toolkit, along with computational resources available on the NCN, Open Science Grid, and TeraGrid networks. You can use these resources to do research. Or, you can use workspaces as a development area for new tools. You can upload code, compile it, test it, and debug it. Once your code is working properly in a workspace, it is ready to be deployed as a tool on nanoHUB. Contributors, people that "share" or "upload" code, can get workspace access as part of the contribution process. More information about contributing code on can be found here. You can use normal Linux tools to transfer data into and out of your workspace. For example, sftp will establish a connection with your nanoHUB file share.

NOTE: If you would like workspace access to develop a nanoHUB tool, please contact us via a help ticket. To open a ticket, click on the “Support” or “help” links on the top right of a nanoHUB window. In your ticket, provide the following information: the name of your tool and its intended use and audience, your affiliation and name of your project and PI (if applicable) and whether you are working with an NCN PI or are an NCN Partner. Your request will be reviewed promptly.
