Concert is a light-weight control system interface to control Tango and native devices. It can be used as a library:

from concert.quantities import q
from concert.devices.motors.dummy import LinearMotor

motor = LinearMotor()
motor.position = 10 * q.mm
motor.move(-5 * q.mm)

or from a session and within an integrated IPython shell:

$ concert init session
$ concert start session

session > motor.position = 10 * q.mm
10.0 millimeter

You can read more about Concert in the official documentation.
