Python library to interface with PicoLog ADC hardware

## Project description

# DataLog: a library for interacting with PicoLog hardware
It provides a Python class to interact with the ADC24, and data structures
to represent its outputs. The ADC24 is implemented, but the library is
designed to be easily extended for other PicoLog (and potentially non-PicoLog)
hardware. It may work with the ADC20 without modification, but this is not
tested.

## Prerequisites
The following requirements must be met before DataLog is installed:
* Python 3.5+
* PicoLog ADC 20/24 hardware and driver (libpicohrdl)

The PicoLog ADC driver can be obtained from
working before using this library.

## Installation
Installation is handled by setup.py. This is most easily handled by pip:
bash
pip3 install datalog

This installs the Python package dependencies automatically. If the above command doesn't make sense, try reading
[this introduction to pip](https://packaging.python.org/tutorials/installing-packages/).

## Use
The documentation should help to get you started. Compile it with:
bash
cd doc
make html

The main functionality is implemented in datalog/adc/hrdl/picolog.py and this
class can be used on its own.

### Site-specific use
We use this library at the [University of Glasgow observatory](http://www.astro.gla.ac.uk/observatory/weather/Observatory_weather/Observatory_weather.htm)
for our magnetometer. We have to calibrate the raw counts coming from the
PicoLog unit, as well as upload this data to our FTP server. The set of scripts
we use can be found [here](https://github.com/acrerd/magnetometer).
