Subject Re: [python] Experimental version of plc4py available for testing!

Hi,

I see... well, we can do that, no objections... I have just no idea how this whole "directory"
resolution stuff works.
But feel free to adapt it in my branch.

Julian

PS.: Or should I simply merge it into develop for all to play around?

    Hi Julian,
    
    I just checked out your feature-branch and can now see the plc4py directory.
    So as mentioned in another thread, I think it would be great to have a similar setup as
with the other languages.
    Then we would have a "plc4py/api" and a "plc4py/proxy" module (As we are hoping to have
"plc4py/s7" and alike in the near future).
    
    The "proxy" driver could then run the thrift generation stuff ... 
    
    What do you think?

        For what?
        I just added a maven module for plc4py.. so feel free to add the "copy the jar from
interop-server"-thing... as you can do that without googling, I know :D

                Oh, and just one or two more comments.
                I would love if someone who knows how modules in maven work (setup.py ...)
could help a bit out here (perhaps copy the lib automatically during maven build).
                And then, I'll create the PR as soon as someone else has tried it out : )

                    No offense. Just wanted to start a discussion and get some feedback before
a pr :)

                    Hi Julian,
                    
                    Great stuff :-)
                    
                    Well how about adding the plc4py to develop and work on the API from there?
I mean you currently can't really use the c++ implementation sure to a lack of drivers (so
this concept would also be great for that). The connection to the Java thrift server could
be treated as a proxy and therefore the driver could be named something accordingly. Then
we'd have the API module and a proxy driver implementation. Guess this setup should work for
all languages.
                    
                    And let's see if the news on Tuesday will wash ashore someone interested
and deeply into python that could help fine tune the API?

                    Hi all,
                    
                    as some of you may know, with the interop server (PLC4X-111) we are working
towards providing language bindings for other languages.
                    And, as I thought I should learn python at some point, I decided to play
around with the python bindings.
                    So, in my branch [1] you find the experimental implementation of a python
api based on the interop server.
                    There are also some tests which pass and the mt / it where tried against
my local s7 here and work also.
                    
                    All you need to run everything is (aside from installing the necessary
dependencies, which are mainly thrift in version 0.12.0) is written in the README.md.
                    
                    I would be very grateful if someone tries this out and gives feedback.
                    And we should also talk about some things like.
                    
                      *   How are these packages created in python, how to integrate this
in our build?
                      *   How to manage the dependencies (there are many systems in python
as I learned)
                      *   Is this API okay or not python-esque enough?
                    
                    Thanks all of you for your feedback.
                    And I would even suggest to prepare an experimental version of this with
the next release to some python repos to let people play around with it in python. This could
really be a killer feature to bring others to the community.
                    
                    Best
                    Julian
