DescriptionThe use of environment modules in HPC systems is rapidly gaining traction due to the increasing complexity of managing research software. While environment modules improve organization for administrators, they can be unfriendly to end-users, especially those less familiar in UNIX-like shell environments. I created a search engine for modules that allows users to query available modules by the names of the commands they provide. Furthermore, I wrote integrations for the popular shells bash and zsh that completely automate the searching and the loading
process.
