For developers

INDIGO is still under development and INDIGO development guide is under preparation, but in the meantime you can already look at the source codes available in public Git repository.

Obtaining and building the code

Make sure that you have all prerequisites installed. On Ubuntu / Debian / Raspian use:

$ sudo apt-get install build-essential autoconf autotools-dev libtool cmake libudev-dev libavahi-compat-libdnssd-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev fxload

It is advised to remove libraw1394-dev as the build may fail if it is installed

$ sudo apt-get remove libraw1394-dev

On macOS install XCode and download and build autoconf, automake and libtool (use tools/cltools.sh script).

If you're ready, get the code and built it

$ git clone https://github.com/indigo-astronomy/indigo.git

$ cd indigo

$ make all

$ build/bin/indigo_server_standalone

or

$ build/bin/indigo_server indigo_ccd_asi [other drivers]

and connect from any INDI client or WEB browser to port 7624...

This is list of properties, their items and mapping to legacy INDI protocol
