Open source VCL/FireMonkey data flow library
Openwire offers you a free open source library for writing advanced vcl/firemonkey (fmx) components for delphi, c++ builder and rad studio. The purpose of the openwire project is to introduce unified easy way to transfer data among different vcl/firemonkey components.
This is very similar to the way the products as labview, agilent vee or simulink work. For example, you could quickly build an application with a sine wave generator, which streams out to a chart and in parallel to a filter, which streams out to another chart and in parallel to a file logger, as well as to a serial communication sending the data to another system.
And what makes this easy is that you do not write code: you build streams by connecting an outputpin to one or more inputpins. The underlying technology pumps your data from pin to pin, in a multithreading safe fashion, allowing high performance data exchange.
Also includes a visual graphical editor for codeless development. Openwire uses streams in order to transfer the data. Each stream is a connection between one output and one or multiple inputs. Each component can have one or more inputs and/or outputs. Each input or output is called pin.
There are iputpins and outputpins. Each outputpin can stream specific format data to compatible format inputpins. Each type of data has its own data specification. Supports state pins, allowing components to share common state.
