Repository and documentation

Controls.kt is a data acquisition framework (work in progress). It is based on DataForge, a software framework for automated data processing. This repository contains a prototype of API and simple implementation of a slow control system, including a demo.

Controls.kt uses some concepts and modules of DataForge, such as Meta (immutable tree-like structure) and Meta (which includes a scalar value, or a tree of values, easily convertable to/from JSON if needed).

Materials and publications


Among other things, you can:

  • Describe devices and their properties.

  • Connect devices to event bus via bidirectional message flows.
