Hello everyone ! I'm working in a ros2 project and i want to know if there is a way to build a simple interface or (web site) so i can run the nodes from it instead of using the terminal.. . because not all the team knows ros2 and i want to make it easy for them to launch or run nodes by only using a simple interface. I saw that there is a python method to launch the system but i wonder if there is something specific for ros2 or not.

There is this new (as of June 2022) post on ROS Discourse Create stunning UIs for ROS2 using the newly released QML ROS2 plugin:

If it is going to be a visualization and debugging tool for robotics, maybe Foxglove would be good?

If it's mostly about launching nodes, the most commonly used are Python launch files, I believe

Yes i'm using python launch files, but the issue is i want to build a simple interface so if someone who doesn't know what is ros or doesn't work with terminal can just click a botton and launch these files.
