Python is a versatile language that you can use on the server side or the client side. On the server side, you can use Python to create web applications, handle requests and responses, and access databases. On the client side, you can use Python to create desktop applications or interfaces. You can also use Python to create cross-platform applications that run on Windows, Mac, and Linux.
Inductive Automation’s Ignition platform is a powerful tool for building industrial applications. Ignition uses Python for scripting and for its tag-based programming language, Vision. Python is also used for some of the built-in functions in the Ignition designer.
If you’re new to Python, you can get started by reading the official Python tutorial. Once you’re familiar with the basics of Python, you can start learning how to use Python with Ignition.
The first thing you need to do is install the Python runtime on your computer. Ignition ships with a Python runtime, so you don’t need to install anything else. However, if you want to use a different version of Python, you can download and install the Python runtime from the Python website.
Once you have the Python runtime installed, you can start using Python with Ignition. To use Python in an Ignition project, you’ll need to add a Python reference to your project. To do this, open the Project Properties dialog (File > Project Properties) and select the References tab. Click the Add button and select Python from the list of available references.
Once you’ve added a Python reference to your project, you can start using Python in your tags and scripts. To use Python in a tag, simply select Python as the language for the tag. To use Python in a script, you’ll need to use the PythonScript module.
The PythonScript module provides functions for executing Python code in an Ignition project. To use the PythonScript module, you’ll first need to import it into your script. You can do this by adding the following line to the top of your script:
Once you’ve imported the PythonScript module, you can use the run(code) function to execute Python code. For example, the following code will print “Hello, world!” to the Ignition log:
You can also use the runfile(filename) function to execute a Python script. The runfile(filename) function will take the contents of the specified file and execute it as Python code. For example, the following code will execute the script myscript.py:
You can find out more about the PythonScript module in the Ignition Scripting Reference.
Now that you know how to use Python with Ignition, you can start building your own industrial applications. Be
