Project description

# PLICO: Python Laboratory Instrumentation COntrol

[![Build Status][travis]][travislink] | [![Coverage Status][coveralls]][coverallslink] |

plico is a framework to develop applications controlling instrumentation typically available in a scientific laboratory. It is entirely written in Python and support server-client applications, using [zeromq][zmq] as message dispatcher.

[zmq]: http://zeromq.org [travis]: https://travis-ci.com/lbusoni/plico.svg?branch=master “go to travis” [travislink]: https://travis-ci.com/lbusoni/plico [coveralls]: https://coveralls.io/repos/github/lbusoni/plico/badge.svg?branch=master “go to coveralls” [coverallslink]: https://coveralls.io/github/lbusoni/plico

## Installation

plico runs on Python 2.7+ and Python 3.3+.

It depends on zmq, numpy and pyfits (to store calibrations). You need a backend (PyQt4/PySide, PyQt5/PySide2) for GUIs.

It is not very useful to install this package by itself. See [tipico][tipico] to install an example applications simulating some HW controller and a corresponding client.

Anyhow, if you really want to install plico as standalone package go on with pip:

` pip install plico `

## Wish list

  • Documentation (readthedocs or alike)
  • Implement reconnect-to-devices in case of lost connection
  • Implement service discovery
