Re: INDI AP driver
Michael Fulbright <mike.fulbright@...>
The future you are projecting with cross-platform ASCOM would be very welcome as I always like to have multiple options.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
And it isn't too hard to write code to support multiple platforms - Cartes du Ciel does this already for example.
PHD2 is another example.
But since this promised ASCOM doesn't exist yet it really doesn't answer the requirements people have until this happens.
People have been waiting for a better part of a decade actually.
So for those people there is a valid alternative and we are all working on making it better.
You should be careful throwing out unsubstantiated comments like "almost every ASCOM driver is considerably more mature".
Based on what criteria or testing? I don't know we can make any claims of that nature without considerable work to back it up.
I also think the idea of having every ASCOM driver migrated to a new platform is more non-trivial than you are making it sound.
And why would you have to rewrite an entire application to use INDI?
Any properly written application will abstract these methods to minimize the impact of the actual implementation.
The best I can tell what you are trying to say is "If I have a decade invested in a code base that using Windows/ASCOM it would be best for me if everyone continues using Windows/ASCOM".
