    Due to these circumstances which are beyond our control, the Tango Controls meeting 2020 is postponed from June to November 2020 in the hope that it will then be possible to travel and meet in St Petersburg. THe new dates are:

        November, 17-19 2020.

    We really hope that the situation in November will be safe and we all will be able to meet face-2-face and have a productive and exciting meeting in the beautiful city of St Petersburg! Thank you for understanding.

    In the meantime a compact virtual meeting is planned for the 10 June so that the community stays informed of progress for the core projects. More details to follow on this site.

    Looking forward to seeing you online in June and face-2-face in Saint Petersburg!

  • cumbia-telegram.png

    The cumbia-telegram bot is a small server employing the Telegram bot API to establish a communication between an authorized user  and a control system managed by the cumbia libraries. It can be used to:

    • get notifications about the control system status
    • read any source supported by the control system engines
    • employ formulas to get custom notifications:  alert  sr/diagnostics/dcct_s4 < 10

    Special care has been taken in realizing a safe application that protects the control system from both overloading and unauthorized access. The interaction with the messaging application is made effortless by the history, bookmark and alias modules. They promote tapping rather than writing.

    cumbia formula plugin & la-cumparsita app: manipulate results through functions & give life to an application without writing code

    cumbia-formula plugin: mixing the Qt javascript integration and the cumbia formula plugin, read results from Tango and Epics can be manipulated by functions. The results can be displayed into any cumbia-qtcontrols widget. Check out cumbia-libs and refer to the formula plugin section for details.

    la-cumparsita: a new cumbia utility that inflates a qt designer ui file into a real application without writing code. Nonetheless, the most demanding users can inject javascript functions into the graphical components to process and combine values from the devices. la-cumparsita seamlessly integrates with real Qt/C++ applications sharing the same cumbia  model.
