[Bug 819] New: Feature request for graphical component support

http://bugs.orocos.org/show_bug.cgi?id=819

Summary: Feature request for graphical component support
Product: Toolchain
Version: unspecified
Platform: All
OS/Version: All
Status: NEW
Severity: enhancement
Priority: P5
Component: RTT
AssignedTo: orocos-dev [..] ...
ReportedBy: steven [dot] bellens [..] ...
CC: orocos-dev [..] ...
Estimated Hours: 0.0

The idea just came up in my head. How nice it would be to have, at runtime, a
graphical overview of all my created OROCOS components, showing their status,
how they are connected to each other, etc... May I dream of the option of then
selecting one of the components output ports and getting a plot of the
outputted data?

I know this is far from a trivial implementation, but I think _a lot_ of users
would _greatly_ benefit from it!

[Bug 819] New: Feature request for graphical component support

You mean a graphical "taskBrowser" ? This would be really really great to
have.

How to arrange components on the page is not simple espacially when you have
many components (we have 60 of them and I don't count connection but be sure
it's hudge).

I know those and already use them, but they don't allow you to see the
different components and connections _inside_ the deployed orocos
process.
A workaround is putting all output port data on ros nodes and reading
all input port data from ros nodes, in that way launching a new
deployer for every component - which is a far from optimal solution.

yes and there is things happening inside components (state machines, scripts

[Bug 819] New: Feature request for graphical component support

To support the OROMACS framework, a MSc student at the Control Engineering
group (University of Twente) developed an OROMACS Browser tool with
functions as you have mentioned.

Is this code available for the public?

This tool seems great ! I would love to have something like this in OCL
Does the port updates without human actions ?

These tools are already available is ROS, namely rxgraph and rxplot.
They provide port connections, and port data plotting.
Just use the orocos_ros toolchain if you want to have these tools for
free! ;)
