"In this session, we will cover extending Cockpit (http://cockpit-project.org/), a web-based server management tool for Linux systems. Cockpit is the default administrative interface for Fedora Cloud, oVirt Node, and other distros, and can easily be added to Atomic, CentOS, and others.

Cockpit was designed to be modular, and adding your own code is a very easy process. Cockpit provides abstractions for invoking on dbus, spawning processes, and interacting with the filesystem.

We'll use docker-compose to bring up a development environment which reflects changes live, and walk through creating a filesystem browser and python REPL in about an hour.

No familiarity with React is required, though some familiarity with basic web development wold be helpful. Docker-compose should be configured."
