Write graphical user interface components and applications communicating with the Tango and Epics control systems. More control system engines can be added in the future and plugged into existing cumbia installations and applications.


cumbia is written in C++ and uses the Qt libraries to develop graphical user interfaces. This means cumbia applications work on desktop computers as well as on Android devices. In principle, cumbia is available wherever C++ and Qt are supportedAndroid and Linux platforms have been successfully tested and porting an application from one platform to another is just a matter of a few clicks with the Qt creator IDE.
