Julia binding for ZWO ASI SDK now available

Post by MonsterMax » Fri Mar 27, 2020 5:29 pm

Hello everybody!

I spent the past weeks becoming familiar with julia and wrote a wrapper for the camera SDK. You can take a look at the result here:

https://github.com/AlfTetzlaff/LibASICamera.jl

All installation instructions, as well the documentation can be found there. Raspberry Pi is not yet supported, Mac and Windows have not been tested - you are welcome to do so. The wrapper downloads and installs the SDK in the background. If you see any licensing issues, please let me know and I will act immediately.

Have fun experimenting with it! Any help is welcome!

EDIT: Windows and RaspberryPi support have been added! :)

Yes, interactive like python, but at the same time quite different, as all the code gets compiled. Therefore it is very slow on the first run of any function, but a lot faster afterwards; you should be able to easily get high frame rates with it - there is an example on the git page. Just try it out and come to the dark side :D
