rtsprofile is a Python library providing an interface to the RT System Profile specification.
rtsprofile is an interface library of RT system profile (RTSProfile) specification. This specification describes a complete RT system and can restore and manage the system. YAML is also available for XML.
This software is being developed by National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, with support of the next generation robot intelligent technology development project of NEDO (New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization).
InstallationThere are several methods of installation available:
Using the library
The library has one main entry point: the RtsProfle class. Create an instance of this class, giving the constructor just one data source. The library will parse that source and give you a complete RT System Profile. You can then use the properties (they're Python properties, not class methods) to access information about the RT System. For further details, see the doxygen-generated documentation.
Running the tests
A pair of test specifications, one in each format, are included with the library. You can execute the test on these files as below:
Be aware that, depending on your Python paths, the tests may be executed against an installed copy of rtsprofile rather than the copy in the current working directory.
These tests are not yet complete coverage.
API naming conventions
rtsprofile follows the standard Python naming conventions as laid out in PEP8.
Most importantly, the private, internal API functions begin with an underscore (_). If a function begins with an underscore, it is not intended for use outside the class and doing so could lead to undefined behaviour. Only use those API functions that do not begin with an underscore and have a docstring in your programs.
Further documentation and examples
For further documentation, see the Doxygen-generated API documentation.
For examples of using the library, see the rtshell source code .
