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.
