another probably elementary question: is there in Vstar a way to produce graphs with points of different colors and dependent on the observer?
Is there an automatic procedure or a plug-in to load data from different observers and assign a different color to each of these in graphs?
thanks a lot
You can create a new series after having created a filter, e.g. by observer code. Such a new series can be assigned a color like any other series. See pages 45, 46 in the user manual.
This is a manual process.
It's possible that a plugin could be created to do what you suggest, but that does not exist yet. Another approach would be to write a script to automate this in VStar but the create series feature would need to be exposed via the scripting API (see page 115ff).
I've seen the…
I've seen the documentation on how to write plug-ins and some examples, it doesn't seem that straightforward....besides the fact that you probably need some form of authorization
question: do you plan to expone scripting API (for creation of series?)
Plugins require no authorisation to create, just the ability to code.
They can be manually placed into the vstar_plugins directory or you can point to a local dir where the plugin is (via the plugin manager). To get a plugin into the plugin repository used by VStar's plugin manager requires getting them into the code base:
The scripting API, yes:
It's really just about prioritising what to do first and there's no shortage of issues (bugs, features) to address.
We're working towards the next release now. Hopefully out this month.
