Latest commit 4e226c8 Dec 3, 2018


This software is used by The Cacophony Project to record thermal video footage from a FLIR Lepton 3 camera when a warm moving object (hopefully an animal) is detected. Recordings are stored using the project's own CPTV format.


Releases are built using TravisCI. To create a release:

  • Tag the release with an annotated tag. For example: git tag -a "v1.4" -m "1.4 release"
  • Push the tag to Github: git push origin v1.4
  • TravisCI will see the pushed tag, run the tests, create a release package and create a Github Release.

For more about the mechanics of how releases work, see travis.yml and .goreleaser.yml.
