Transient Array Radio Telescope High-level HTTP Interface

Project description

TART: Radio-telescope high-level HTTP interface

This module is used to communicate with the TART radio telescope. It listens on a port on localhost, and allows a web-based interface to communicate with the TART hardware.

For more information see the TART github repository


Running The API Server

The API server is a flask app written in Python. This is run using the 'flask' command line tool on the telescope host (Raspberry Pi) that is installed as a dependency of this package. A shell script '' should be created with the following contents:

export LOGIN_PW=password
export FLASK_APP=tart_web_api.main
flask run

where 'password' is a secure password that can be used to log into the telescope web-application to configure your telescope.


We are now using to deployment using docker. There is a Dockerfile for this in the TART/software/docker/tart_web_api directory.


twistd -n web --port 8080 --wsgi
