xWoTModelTranslator 1.6

Translates xWoT models into various code snippets

# Model2Code converter

Convert an xWoT meta-model to executable python code.

# Installation

## End Users

pip install xWoTModelTranslator

## Developers

### Final installation

from a terminal launch

sudo python setup.py install --record files.txt

this will compile and install the project to the pyhton libraries (eg. /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/XWoT_Model_Translator-1.1-py2.7.egg). Furthermore it will install three scripts in /usr/local/bin/:
* physical2virtualEntities
* model2Python
* model2WADL
The configuration and logging.conf are copied into /etc/Model2WADL/ but it is possible to overwrite them either by placing a file with the same name (but prefixed with a dot eg. .logging.conf) in the user home directory or a file with the same name in the current working directory.

### Development installation

from a terminal launch

sudo python setup.py develop --record files.txt

does the same as before but, uses links instead of copying files.

### Clean Working directory

To clean the working directory

sudo python setup.py clean --all
sudo rm -rf build/ dist/ xWoTModelTranslator.egg.egg-info/ files.txt


# Uninstall

## Method 1

# Utilisation

The package provide two scripts: _physical2virtualEntities_ and _model2Python_. The first one is used to enhance an xWoT model (created with the according Eclipse plugin see https://github.com/aruppen/architecture4xwot for how to get this eclipse plug-in) containing only the virtual side of a Device with the corresponding virtual side. The second script takes a final xWoT model and translates it into code skeletons. The code sekeltons reflects the chosen hierarchy as a RESTful webservice based on python and autobahn.
