Geppetto is a web based platform to build neuroscience applications that let the user explore, visualize and simulate neuroscience data and models such as a cell or even a whole brain.

A demo application using latest release of Geppetto is available here while the binaries are available to download here. The documentation is split into two main sections: a guide to help you learn how to use Geppetto based applications and the developers documentation, to learn how to build applications based on Geppetto and how to contribute to it.

Geppetto is open source, released under the MIT license.
