Micro-Manager Device Developer's Kit for Windows

Revision as of 21:38, 12 September 2011 by Nenad (Talk | contribs)

The Device Developer's Kit contains all source code and instructions required for building Micro-Manager device adapters. The major version number corresponds to the matching Micro-Manager Device API version. Using this kit you can build device adapters completely independent of the rest of the Micro-Manager code base, i.e. without the need to set up complicated build environments, or to understand or access MMCore and user interface source code.

As well as downloading and installing the Device Developer's Kit (installer downloads below), you will need to read the instruction manual: Building Micro-Manager Device Adapters.

Latest release

As of Micro-manager release 1.4.6 Device Kit is a part of the source code and there is no need to download and install stand-alone libraries and executables. All development tools and libraries can be built directly from the main source code base following a simple process described in Building Micro Manager Device Adapters. Distribution of separate Device Kit installers is therefore discontinued.

Despite some minor cleanup, Device Kit functionality is unchanged: it allows developers to develop and test Device Adapters using a low-level C++ environment. No changes are required to Device Adapters developed with the previous versions of the Device Kit.

Main advantage of the new source-code based Device Kit is that it never gets out of sync with the main code base. Developers just have to check out the latest code from the repository without the need to install any additional libraries or tools. Also, by following directory structure described in the new Device Kit, deployment and transfer of newly developed Device Adapters should be easier than before.
