RQT Wrapper

Overview

Wrap an rqt plugin so that it automagically goes down and comes up as a ROS master at the other end goes down and comes back up again. This solves the frustration of having to restart all of your rqt applications on your laptop/pc every time you teardown the robot and relaunch it again. Incidentally it will save time and effort as well.

The source code is released under a BSD 3-Clause license.

Status

Beta. Areas to be addressed:

  • Desktop notifications instead of a dialog while ros is down, #4.
  • Reflect all of the arguments that rqt programs usually let you handle, #5.

Usage

Just two lines. This example wraps the rqt_reconfigure plugin:

import rqt_wrapper
import sys

if __name__ == '__main__':
    rqt_wrapper = rqt_wrapper.RQTWrapper('rqt_reconfigure.param_plugin.ParamPlugin')
    sys.exit(rqt_wrapper.exec_())

Programs

Some of the common rqt programs are recreated here with the wrqt_xxx prefix and deposited into the global bin directory.

  • wrqt_graph
  • wrqt_reconfigure
  • wrqt_robot_monitor
