Raising my hand ... :-)

    Oh, and just one or two more comments.
    I would love if someone who knows how modules in maven work ( ...) 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 : )

        Hi Chris,
        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
        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.
        DISCLAIMER: That I work with Python does NOT mean that I like python, just to be clear!
