  The web continues to grow as an application platform, with accessibility and platform independence as major benefits. It also makes it possible to tie services together in new ways through simple APIs. At MAX IV we are using web services for various purposes related to the control system, for example, monitoring servers and services, accessing alarm history, viewing control system status, managing system and users logs and running recurring jobs. Furthermore, all user management is also accessed via web applications, and even data analysis and experiment control can now be performed via web based interfaces. We make an effort to use existing tools whenever possible (e.g. Kibana, Prometheus), and otherwise develop systems in-house, based on current well established libraries and standards, such as JavaScript, Python, Apache, etc. This paper presents an overview of our activities in the field and describes different architectural decisions taken.
