ISystemtap is an interactive jupyter interface for the
incremental writing and running of Systemtap scripts.
The stap-jupyter-install program can be used to locally install
the ISystemtap jupyter kernel, language-server and jupyter-lab
extension in ~/.systemtap/jupyter. Once installed, the kernel
can be used with jupyter-lab.
Alternatively the stap-jupyter-container program can be used to
run ISystemtap within a container, preventing the need for any
local jupyter kernel installation.
