Scope GUI for TCP Reporting

Hello,
Does anyone already programmed a Scope GUI to monitor real time values from
the TCP Reporter ?

The TCP Reporter was once created together with a plugin for kst
(http://kst.kde.org) by a summer student and then rewritten by me for a
project. I think Herman should still have some of the source code for the kst
plugin.

In the project we connected the TCP Reporter to a telemetry visualisator of
ESA/Trasys, but I guess it is not open source.

URL about this "Scope GUI", please? Your 'first impressions'? What would be
its "competitive advantages"?...

He did not deliver, in the end... :-(

I wasn't talking about a particular software. I'm just looking for a tool to
plot the real time recorded data.

I looked at kst and this is exactly what I'm looking for, but with TCP
Reporter support :-) . Is there a particular reason why the kst plugin
didn't work?

I don't know, i think parts of it definitly worked. But as Herman said, no code
is delivered and thus lost.

But I checked the kst website a little bit and the have a template for adding
a new datasource plugin, this is exaclty what you/we need as a starter.

look at: http://kst.kde.org/download.html at the bottom: Datasource Template,
i do not think it should be to hard to add support for the tcp reporter.

Ok that's why I didn't find any mention on the net about this "Scope GUI"
:-)

Besides KST, I think CLAM <http://clam-project.org/> is also a potentially
good candidate: it's been developed with audio in mind, but its source is
very nicely decoupled from that application. It also allows to build a GUI
and not just do a Scope only :-)

But my technological bias goes towards the Python framework of Enthought
<http://code.enthought.com/projects/index.php>: at least as complex to
understand and learn as Orocos, but also a framework with a long term and
broad vision :-)
