Cyface KNIME Nodes

Run Status Coverage Badge

These are the KNIME nodes developed and used by the Cyface GmbH. We do provide them without any warranty, but we are happy to share our experience ond get input from the community. If you got an improvement or found a bug please let us know.

Some of the Nodes are work in progress and will not work directly. Please see the following list for a more detailed explanation about the KNIME nodes included.

  • Distance: A node to convert a signal with non equal spaced data points to a signal with equal spacing.
  • Envelope: A node to calculate the envelope curve to an input data signal.
  • Read: A node to read input in Cyface binary format.
  • Export: A node to export data to the Cyface binary format.
  • Map Matching (WIP): A node to map match a table of coordinates. This is still work in progress and does not work yet.
  • Smooting: A node for smoothing a data signal.



Steps to get Cyface KNIME Nodes inside KNIME:

  1. Goto Help > Install new software ... menu
  2. Press add button
  3. Fill text fields with
  4. Select --all sites-- in work with pulldown
  5. Select Cyface KNIME Nodes
  6. Install software & restart (for now an "Unsigned Content" warning can popup during the installation, you can safely ignore this)


Development requirements:

Steps to get development environment setup:

  1. Download, install and run Eclipse Oxygen
  2. Clone this Git repository
  3. Import contents into Eclipse using File → Import... → Maven → Existing Maven Projects
  4. Open targetplatform/ in Eclipse and select Set as Target Platform

During import the Tycho Eclipse providers have to be be installed. If this is not done automatically by Eclipse, perform the following steps:

  1. Goto Eclipse Preferences and browse to Maven → Discovery → Open Catalog
  2. Install Tycho Integrations


The following command builds the entire project:

mvn clean package 


The following command builds the entire project, creates an update site, runs unit tests and test workflows:

mvn clean verify 

ATTENTION: Make sure to use Java 8. Building this does not yet work with higher versions yet.

Releasing a new version

To release a new version of the Cyface KNIME nodes you should use the Tycho versions plugin. Just call:

mvn tycho-versions:set-version -DnewVersion=X.X.X-XXX

and substitute X.X.X-XXX with your new version. The project is versioned using semantic versioning. A samll fix on version 1.0.0 thus should result in a new version 1.0.1. Extensions to the current API should result in 1.1.0 and breaking changes to the existing API should result in a new version 2.0.0. Snapshot versions on the dev branch can have the SNAPSHOT keyword attached, like for example 1.0.0-SNAPSHOT while true releases are qualifier free like 1.0.0.

ATTENTION: Do not use the maven release plugin. This will not work, since there are some Eclipse configuration files, where you need to change the version as well. You may of course do that by hand, but that is tedious and error prone.
