CAEplex is a web front-end for open-source engineering computational codes running on the cloud. It is the first platform designed from the back-end outward, embedding the UNIX philosophy in its design basis to write an easy-to-use yet flexible and powerful tool for engineers.
The front-end was designed, coded and implemented from scratch in the same spirit the back-end was actually designed, coded and implemented. Simple parts connected by well-defined interfaces. Separated policies ands mechanisms. Easy communication with other programs. Small straightforward cooperating pieces.
