Apache Airavata: Develop your own Science Gateways using Airavata

Let's say you want to create a Science Gateway to use the Computing resources available. How do you do this?

It's a tedious job to write the whole thing from scratch because you'll have to deal with the resources head on to create an interface to use the resources along with the gateway you'd want to develop.

The solution is that you can use Apache Airvata to do this task more conveniently. All you need to do is to develop your own gateway, connect it to an Airavata server using the Airavata API, configure the credentials of the resources you want to use, then you are good to go!!

How can I do this you asked?
