Web based root file browsing


I am looking for a tool/webpage/server side script that allows me to browse a root file on the web. Nothing fancy, I just want to be able to look at histograms inside the root file without having to download the file and open it in root manually. Is there anything like that out there?



This is one of the things that the Carrot system is doing. Unfortunately
the carrot web page is down for the time being.

However note that from standard ROOT, you can access any ROOT file via
the web
TFile *f = TFile::Open(“http://xxx.yyy.zz/myfile.root”);

see: root.cern.ch/root/WebFile.html

If you come to the ROOT workshop next week, you will learn more about the developments in this area.
