SDK for Ruby planned?

SDK for Ruby planned?

New Poster

Are there any plans for a Ruby Client in the SDK? Such a client would be highly welcome to integrate ctrlX CORE into our Ruby based SCADA (which also uses ZeroMQ internally for communication 😊). We've already managed to deploy our SCADA app as a Snap on to a ctrlX CORE instance and we are now evaluating the options for communicating with the ctrlX CORE app. As far as me as a Bosch Rexroth newbee could identify, are the following options:

  • Use the data link layer REST-API
  • Use the OPC UA server
  • Use a Ruby client for the data link layer if it would exist

Did I get this right?

congrats on porting your app to the ctrlX CORE. 🚀

Yes, you got it right! You can:

  • Use the REST-API of the Data Layer 
  • Use the OPC UA server app 
  • And if it would exist, you could use a Ruby client for the Data Layer. But currently we only have C/C++, Go, Python, .Net, Node.js. 

At the moment, we don't have any plans for Ruby in our SDK. 

 Best regards, 


Thanks for your quick answer!

Maybe another option could be creating a Ruby binding to the C-library using FFI. Is this a pure C-API or is it C++?
