Projects / Flightdeck-UI


Flightdeck-UI is a project that utilizes the ideas in the design of aircraft controls and instruments for creating general purpose user interfaces. The project includes Flightdeck-UI Online (a Web-based monitoring system that works entirely through the browser), the Multi-Variable Monitor (MVM) application, and a Tkinter widget library. Flightdeck-UI Online is installed on a Web server. The MVM application provides a graphical editor with theme support for quickly creating Flightdeck-UI control panels. It is possible but not necessary to write code in order to use MVM.
