GenApp, a Generalized Application generation framework, is a general tool for rapid deployment of applications to an extensible set of target languages. To produce fully functional science gateways and standalone graphical user interface (GUI) applications, GenApp weaves libraries of code fragments and user defined modules as directed by simple textual definition files. Apart from the scientific code to be deployed, these definition files are the only input from the user. This conceptual simplicity makes GenApp ideally suitable for scientist (physicists, chemists etc.) with little-to-no CS expertise who wish to deploy their scientific software on the web. Currently, GenApp is used to generate multiple web-based science gateways primarily in the Small Angle Scattering field. GenApp features are frequently added as required by use cases. We will briefly cover existing basic and advanced GenApp capabilities and focus on detailed discussion of the most recently integrated GenApp features including enhancements to the user interface such as enabling robust interactive 2D and 3D data plotting.
