This is pretty interesting stuff :)  There has been thinking about
open-sourcing our in-house descriptor engine that we use to call some
common chemistry software libraries.  If it would be helpful at all, I can
advance this project forward faster if you may find it useful.  Note that a
good half of the run-time is dedicated to actually being able to run the
software, so it may be a good companion piece.

Additionally, this is the first time I have heard of cclib actually, so
thanks for bringing it to our attention.

> Project abstract:
> cclib is used to parse calculation results from various chemistry software
> log files. This project will be a flask-based framework making use of cclib
> to parse a collection of such log files, store the parsed data in a
> database and enable searching & filtering of these data records via a REST
> API. The web front-end will be based on this API. Also, a chemistry
> software log file can be uploaded on the webpage which will be parsed with
> cclib to show the results.
> Thus, this project will provide a web GUI for cclib, add searching
> capability and also make use of 3Dmol.js to visualize the molecule in
> browser (when file is uploaded as well as in search results).
> I had started with the simple functionality of showing parsed results from
> uploaded file. The current code can be seen at :
> nitish6174/cclib-web.
> I hope to migrate the code to a new repository under OpenChemistry's
> github.
