Transient Array Radio Telescope High-level HTTP Interface
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 'run_api.sh' should be created with the following contents:
#!/bin/bash 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 tart_web_api.app
If you are developing this package, this should be installed using
python3 setyp.py develop
in which case changes to the source-code will be immediately available to projects using it.
