AreaDetector configurator and viewer

Project description

AreaDetector configurator (and - one day - viewer)

adviewer - despite the viewer in its name - is primarily a configuration tool for already-running areaDetector IOCs. It can help you determine how any given plugin pipeline has been configured, displaying an interactively- reconfigurable node graph and tree-based view. It may also help you discover what plugins are installed for an unfamiliar installation.

Eventually, there will be a full-featured viewer based on PyDM integrated as well. For now, a simple PyDM user interface is spawned in a separate process when using the image plugin right-click context menu in the graph.



  • PyDM, to spawn an image viewer
