master codecov

Copyright (c) 2018 - 2020, S. V. Paulauskas, Dolosse Collaboration.

Dolosse is a modern scientific data acquisition and analysis framework. We use Kafka as a messaging backend that allows synchronization between acquisition systems. Using Kafka's messaging interface we can create a feedback loops between analysis and acquisition systems. We're still working on developing the framework


  • Digitizer interfaces (coming soon)
    • XIA
      • Pixie-16
      • XIA Pixie-Net
  • Decode digitizer data formats
    • XIA
      • Pixie-16 (released)
      • Pixie-4 and Pixie-Net (coming soon)
  • Runs on Linux and Windows Systems.
  • Unpacks binary data formats:
    • PLD (UTK)
    • LDF (ORNL) - coming soon


Our documentation is sparse right now since we're still getting off the ground. You can read about the project motivation in this presentation. You can also checkout the wiki.


Checkout the support page for more information.


There are a couple of ways to use the software. They depend on the goal that you're after.

For use in custom software

pip install dolosse

Now you'll have access to the packages and modules we use to build our components. Checkout the modules documentation to see what you can do out of the box.

NOTE: There's nothing that's ready for experiments just yet.

For development

Developers should read the development workflow.

git clone
cd dolosse
python3 -m venv venv
pip install -r requirements.txt
