Description

There is interest in providing devices via Python. A Python FE framework would be ideal. This would allow engineers and physicists to directly link their analysis to devices.

Should this kind of work be done in an IOC?

History

#1 Updated by Beau Harrison 2 months ago

  • Description updated (diff)

#2 Updated by Richard Neswold 20 days ago

(This should probably be moved to a front-end project.)

Just a few notes about supporting this:

  • Our current Python library uses TCP sockets to reach acnetd. We either need to open up service support on our TCP interface or create a Python library that uses the local, UDP interface.
  • The scripts would have to run on registered ACNET nodes (see previous point). We currently don't encourage transient front-ends. If a FE is operational, we expect its devices to be accessible.

#3 Updated by Beau Harrison 20 days ago

  • Category set to Front-end Request
  • Project changed from DPM to Front-end Group
  • Tracker changed from Feature to Idea

Move to the FE group.
