Extra parameters may ne passed to ant script to define default Tango REST API endpoint and/or Tango host:

$> REST_API_PROTOCOL=[http|https] REST_API_HOST=[ip/fqdn] REST_API_PORT=[e.g. 10001]  \
   TANGO_HOST=[ip/fqdn] TANGO_PORT=[e.g. 10000] \
   npm run build

Implementation details

  • Webix is used for UI
  • CodeMirror is used for scripting console
  • Plotly is used to display plots and images
