One of the features Globus users appreciate is its user-friendly login mechanism. Globus allows users to login using Google, ORCID, or identities from any of the thousands of academic/research organizations that participate in InCommon or eduGAIN.

Did you know you can easily add the Globus login function to your own Apache-hosted website or web application? In this blog post, I’ll demonstrate how to use Globus Auth to do just that.

My last post introduced the Jupyter “live notebook” environment and explained why our Globus team is working to make it easier to use Globus services in the Jupyter environment. Now, it’s time to share some of the cool things you can do with Globus and Jupyter.

In this post, I’ll cover how to access Globus services in Jupyter notebooks, how to set up a multi-user JupyterHub to use Globus for user logins, and how to access Globus access tokens in a notebook after logging in with Globus.

I get a kick out of seeing "ordinary" information technologies make new kinds of science possible. For example, the ability to move and share digital data is a pretty mundane topic in computer science circles. The mass market entertainment industry (think: iTunes, Netflix) has even brought streaming data and multi-megabyte files into our living rooms--for fun! Despite this dramatic adoption and transformation in some industries, there are still plenty of areas where the effects are being felt for the first time.
