About two years ago, I reached out to Roberto Faga and Celso Vanderlei of Patent2Net fame  and finally got in touch with David Reymond from Institut Universitaire de Technologie (IUT) at the Université de Toulon as well as Luc Quoniam, professor and doctor of information and communication in science at different university in France.
Patent2Net seems to be their brainchild altogether and they still want to bring it forward and to a wider audience.
We discussed some ideas revolving around how we could build a P2N with PatZilla features (or a PatZilla with P2N features) together.
Work done so far
Shortly after reaching out to David, we have been able to make some contributions to improve the Patent2Net codebase , which have been received well within the P2N community.
After that, the core developers took over again and continued maintaining and improving the P2N codebase which is now located at .
We would well still like to work on bringing Patent2Net and PatZilla closer together. In order to realize this and other things, we’ve added a generic fullscreen dialog  for displaying cross-referenced things within PatZilla. We did this consciously while definitively still looking at displaying results and visualizations there which have been crunched and enriched through the utilities from Patent2Net. While the fullscreen dialog itself  is not really made of any rocket science at all, we decided to take the chance to move towards TypeScript and integrate Material-UI  as well in order to go into the direction of using next-generation user interface frameworks. This should well reflect our intentions here.
Saying this, we’d like to integrate the full scope of the
p2n command line interface into such fullscreen dialogs on the first hand. Both the idea and the goal here would be to be able to interactively refine queries to OPS using PatZilla and then to drill down into analytics coming from Patent2Net.
Within this conversation, we will try to collect and outline some thoughts on how to improve the general user experience for both installing and using PatZilla together with Patent2Net.
