Common Tkinter widgets for HiPerCAM
Tkinter Widgets for HiPerCAM tools
hcam_widgets provides a set of TKinter widgets and utility functions for writing tools to plan and carry out HiPERCAM observations. The idea is to create a lightweight and easily-installed collection of common widgets. It is compatible with Python2 and Python3.
The software is written as much as possible to make use of core Python components. It relies on the third party library astropy for astronomical calculations.
Once you have installed astropy, install with the usual:
pip install .
or if you don’t have root access:
pip install --user .
Optional package dependencies
hcam_widgets supports several other tools, such as the finding chart tool hfinder and the instrument control GUI hdriver. Most users will need no extra modules installed. However, If you want to be able to run hdriver, and you want full communication with the telescope whilst running at the GTC, you need to install the CORBA implementation omniORBpy.
Full install instructions are found at the omniORB project homepage. Be sure to install both omniORB and omniORBpy. Also, the omniORBpy module and the lib64 variant must both be in the PYTHONPATH. Finally, communicating with the GTC requires the installation of Interface Definition Language (IDL) files, and the python modules compiled from them. Contact S. Littlefair for these files, which must also be in the PYTHONPATH.
