Zorg

Join the chat at https://gitter.im/zorg-framework/zorg

Zorg is a Python framework for robotics and physical computing. It is based on Cylon.js, a JavaScript framework for robotics.

Getting started

Installation

All you need to get Zorg up and running is the zorg package:

pip install zorg

You may need to copy the source if your device does not support pip.

You should also install the packages for the hardware you are looking to support. In our examples, we will be using the Intel Edison and an LED, so we need the edison and gpio packages:

pip install zorg-gpio zorg-edison

Examples

Intel Edison and an LED

This example controls an LED connected to the Intel Edison and blinks it once every 500 milliseconds. This program should be run on the Intel Edison itself.

import zorg

def work (my):
    while True:
        # Toggle the LED
        my.led.toggle()

        # Wait 100ms before doing it again
        time.sleep(0.1)

robot = zorg.robot({
    "connections": {
        "edison": {
            "adaptor": "zorg_edison.Edison",
        },
    },
    "devices": {
        "led": {
            "connection": "edison",
            "driver": "zorg_gpio.Led",
            "pin": 13, # 13 is the on-board LED
        }
    },
    "name": "example", # Give your robot a unique name
    "work": work, # The method (on the main level) where the work will be done
})
