A python binding for the Tango control system

Project description

PyTango documentation status

Main website: http://pytango.rtfd.io

Python binding for Tango, a library dedicated to distributed control systems.

Description

PyTango exposes the complete Tango C++ API through the tango python module. It also adds a bit of abstraction by taking advantage of the Python capabilites:

  • tango.client provides a client access to device servers and databases.
  • tango.server provides base classes to declare and run device servers.

Requirements

PyTango is compatible with python 2 and python 3.

General dependencies:

Python dependencies:

Build dependencies:

Optional dependencies:

Note

As a general rule, libtango and pytango should share the same major and minor version (for a version X.Y.Z, X and Y should match)

Install

PyTango is available on PyPI as pytango:

$ pip install pytango

Alternatively, PyTango can be built and installed from the sources:

$ python setup.py install

In both cases, the installation takes a few minutes since the _tango boost extension has to compile.

Usage

To test the installation, import tango and check tango.__version__:

>>> import tango
>>> tango.__version__
'9.2.0'

For an interactive use, consider using ITango, a tango IPython profile.

Documentation

Support and contribution

You can get support from the Tango forums, for both Tango and PyTango questions.

All contributions, PR and bug reports are welcome!
