Tutorials | PyF, flow-based python programming Tutorials


In the tutorials series we will cover the 4 main levels at which you can use PyF. Depending on which kind of way you want to use pyf you should read the corresponding tutorial.

  • The low-level tutorial is written for people who want to understand the internals of pyf, but keep in mind that pyf’s interest lies in its network and components architecture. Each tutorial will build upon the previous one and thus will continue the source code and exemples of the previous tuturial assuming that you know it already.
  • The network tutorial shows how to wire components together using a network manager instead of building all the wires between components by yourself.
  • The componentized (plugin-based) layer tutorial shows how to wire components without using code.
  • Finally, the design tool of pyf.services (the web service) shows how to use the componentized layer without writing xml code, focusing on what you want to achieve.

If you want to go straight to the fun part, I recommend reading directly the design tutorial, and then, to understand how it works at lower levels reading the others tutorial if needed.

In the tutorials we consider that you have successfully installed the necessary pyf layers. If you haven’t, please go to the corresponding section on the website.
