Abstract: The web technologies utilized for the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope’s (GBT) new Dynamic Scheduling System are discussed, focusing on languages, frameworks, and tools. We use a popular Python web framework, TurboGears, to take advantage of the extensive web services the system provides. TurboGears is a model-view-controller framework, which aggregates SQLAlchemy, Genshi, and CherryPy respectively. On top of this framework, Javascript (Prototype,, and JQuery) and cascading style sheets (Blueprint) are used for desktop-quality web pages.
