Rappture is the Rapid application infrastructure, a toolkit within the HUBzero platform that makes it easy to develop a graphical user interface for scientific modeling tools. This talk picks up where More Rappture Objects left off, showing some of the more advanced constructs in Rappture. Use the structure tag to show the physical structure of your molecule or device. See how to create output logs and make files available for download. Use the sequence tag to create a time series or "movie" of output. Report progress during simulation so users can understand how much longer a simulation might take. Upload supporting materials to help users understand your tool.
