A Continuous REactive SysTems DSL

Project description

CREST - A Continuous REactive SysTems DSL

Build Status PyPI Documentation Status codecov (I know, I know, I'm really busy though...)

Binder <-- Launch this repository and play with CREST directly in your browser!


Introduction

CREST is a novel modelling language for the definition of Continuous-time, REactive SysTems. It is a domain-specific language (DSL) targets small cyber-physical systems (CPS) such as home automation systems. Specifically, it focusses on the flow and transfer of resources within a CPS. While CREST is a graphical language and its systems can be visualised as CREST diagrams, the main form of use is as internal DSL for the Python general purpose programming language.

Try me !

CREST uses Docker, Jupyter notebooks and Binder to create, edit and simulate interactive models online.

You can try CREST yourself by clicking on this link (or on the "launch binder" badge above).

You will find several notebooks that will introduce CREST's Syntax & Semantics and Simulation. You can also just launch the docker container on binder (click the badge) and create a new notebook. You can then create and simulate your own models.

Installation

Recommended: Download/clone this repository and use the sources. The easiest way is to use the latest version of CREST is to either launch it on Binder (see above), or create a local Docker image (scripts/docker-build.sh) and then run it (scripts/docker-run.sh). Alternatively you can use repo2docker.

Local install: You can also use CREST locally and install the dependencies manually. See the Dockerfile for information about the tools and libraries that are used. CREST also requires Microsoft's Z3Prover to be installed (including the Python API).

Soon: A pip-install is in the pipelines but has been delayed due to publication season :-)
