DAQuiri = DAQ + UI Generation + Reactivity + Instruments: A simple scientific DAQ framework.

Project description

daquiri := DAQ + UI generation + Reactivity + Instruments

You should be spending your time designing and running experiments, not your DAQ software.

DAQuiri is a nuts and bolts included framework for scientific data acquisition (DAQ), designed for rapid prototyping and the challenging DAQ environment of angle resolved photoemission spectroscopy. If you specify how to sequence motions and data collection, daquiri can manage the user interface, talking to and managing instruments, plotting interim data, data collation, and IO for you.

DAQuiri also has logging and notification support built in and can let you know over email or Slack when your experiment finishes (successfully or not!).

If DAQuiri doesn’t do exactly what you need, get in contact with us or check out the examples. There’s a good chance that if it isn’t built in, DAQuiri is flexible enough to support your use case.


  • Python 3.7 over

  • NoArch


Automated DAQ

DAQuiri wraps instruments and data sources in a uniform interface, if you specify how to sequence motion and acquisition, DAQuiri handles async collection, IO, and visualizing your data as it is acquired.

UI Generation

DAQuiri using PyQt and Qt5 to generate UIs for your experiments. It also provides simple bindings (daquiri.ui) that make making managing the day to day of working on PyQt simpler, if you need to do UI scripting of your own.

It also ships with a window manager that you can register your windows against, making it seamless to add extra functionality to your experiments.

The DAQuiri UI bindings are wrapped to publish as RxPY observables, making it easier to integrate your PyQT UI into a coherent asynchronous application.


$ pip install daquiri


For usage examples, explore the scripts in the examples folder. You can run them with

$ python -m daquiri.examples.[example_name]

replacing [example_name] with one of:

  1. minimal_app

  2. plot_data

  3. simple_actors

  4. wrapping_instruments

  5. scanning_experiment

  6. scanning_experiment_revisited


0.0.2 (2019-09-10)
