changelog

peekabot project is a multi-platform 3D visualization tool primarily aimed towards aiding robotics researchers in their daily chores.

The peekabot package is subdivided into two distinct parts: the server and the client API, also referred to as "the proxy". Both are built by default but you can disable building of either of them by configuring with --disable-server or --disable-proxy.

Requirements:

· FLTK 1.1.6+ (server only)
· Boost 1.33+
- Boost.Thread
- Boost.DateTime
- Boost.Regex
- Boost.Signals (server only)
- Boost.Filesystem (server only)
- Boost.UnitTest (optional, needed for unit tests)
· Xerces-C++ (server only)
· libpng (server only)
· GLU (server only)

Installation:

General instructions on how to use the GNU autotools build system we use can be found in the INSTALL file. But generally this will suffice:

  ./configure
  make
  make install


If you use Mac OS X you will also have to perform this step after installing the peekabot executable:

  /Developer/Tools/Rez Carbon.r -o /path/to/peekabot

Otherwise the window will not get focus (menus won't work, the window will be obscured by other windows, etc. etc.).

If you built the examples (--enable-examples) you can verify that your installation works by starting peekabot and then running the antigrav demo which can be found in the src/ directory.

Configuration:

Configuration is done through the file ~/.peekabot/config.xml. A nicer configuration interface is planned for the future.
