hyperglass is the modern network looking glass that tries to make the internet better.

Project description

The network looking glass that tries to make the internet better.

hyperglass is intended to make implementing a looking glass too easy not to do, with the lofty goal of improving the internet community at large by making looking glasses more common across autonomous systems of any size.

⚠️ v1.0.0 is currently in beta. While everything should work, some things might not. Documentation and the live demo are not yet complete. For a fully working and documented version of hyperglass, please go to the v0 branch.

Any users, potential users, or contributors of hyperglass are welcome to join and discuss usage, feature requests, bugs, and other things.

hyperglass is developed with the express intention of being free to the networking community.

However, the hyperglass demo does cost @checktheroads $60/year for the domain. If you're feeling particularly helpful and want to help offset that cost, small donations are welcome.



hyperglass is built entirely on open-source software. Here are some of the awesome libraries used, check them out too!
