Generate code from DSDL using Jinja2 templates.

Project description

UAVCAN forum Documentation Status Codacy reports Codacy coverage reports Build status Supported Python Versions Pypi Release Version MIT license

Nunavut is a UAVCAN DSDL code generator that automates exposing a pydsdl abstract syntax tree to Jinja2 templates allowing authors to generate code, schemas, metadata, documentation, etc.

Partial example: generating a C struct

    * UAVCAN data structure definition
    * Autogenerated, do not edit.
    * Source file: {{T.source_file_path}}

    #ifndef {{T.full_name | c.macrofy}}
    #define {{T.full_name | c.macrofy}}

    typedef struct {{T.full_name | c.to_snake_case}}Type
{%- for attribute in T.attributes %}
{%- if attribute is constant %}
        const {{ attribute.data_type | c.type_from_primitive(use_standard_types=True) }} {{ }} = {{ attribute.value }};
{% endif -%}
{% endfor %}


    } {{ T.full_name | c.to_snake_case }};

    #endif // {{T.full_name | c.macrofy}}

Nunavut is named after the Canadian territory. We chose the name because it is a beautiful word to say and read. Also, the name fits with a theme of “places in Canada” started with the Yukon project.


Nunavut requires Python 3.5 or newer and depends on pydsdl.
