rFSM Statecharts (v1.0)
What is it?
rFSM is a small and powerful Statechart implementation. It is mainly used for Coordination of complex systems but is not limited to that. rFSM is written in pure Lua and is therefore highly portable and embeddable. As a Lua domain specific language rFSM inherits the extensibility of its host language.
See the rFSM documentation
Information about how to use rFSM using the OROCOS RTT Framework can be found here.
The code can be found in this git repository.
A cheatsheet summarizing the DSL is available here.
rFSM is dual licensed under LGPL/BSD.
