Will the INDI library be separated from kstars? was created by Fivel

I read some comments, that mention the possibility of the INDI library being separated from kstars.
I hope that happens, so it makes using the library with other apps much easier.
Of course the library should still be included with kstars as well.

This is the case already since 2003 :-)

Hello Jasem.
I guess I should have added that I am talking about kstars on a Mac.
As you know, we Mac users cannot install the INDI library as a stand alone for use with other apps.
One such app is CCDCiel. To use it, I need to first open kstars only for the INDI library.
If my thinking is wrong, please let me know.
Thank you.

Well, INDI is available, but you probably want it packaged separately as its own application. This can be done, but someone who is interested in the Mac community needs to adopt this task and get INDI Library packaged.

You can also clone INDI from Github and build it on Mac and start all the drivers from the console.

Jasem,
I am not a programmer, so I will wait to see if the package is produced.
In the mean time, I need to see how to build the clone from github.

If you are adventurous you can try a new version of my IndiStarter that now include the INDI server.

You can get INDI servers packages for MacOS from cloudmakers. Free I think. Some of their other stuff is for purchase.
www.cloudmakers.eu/indigoserver/

EDIT: I dont know why they make no reference to INDI but I assure you I have an "INDI Server" app I downloaded from them maybe a year ago. I checked again and they say they have retired INDI support but I believe their INDIGO packages are probably based on INDI. I've emailed them for an explanation.

EDIT@: Found this: "INDIGO Server is a server part of INDIGO framework wrapped into macOS GUI. It is INDIGO based replacement for INDI Server for OSX" www.cloudmakers.eu/doc/indigoserver_3.11/#whats_new

Hello PENTAXIAN23, thank you for your reply.
I do have both (older) Indiserver and Indigoserver (Mac). I have connection issues with the Cloudmakers servers (especially the Indigoserver). Other apps do not work well with it.
Also, thanks to Patrick's recent addition, I have the latest Indistarter/server for Mac.
I have some issues with all of them where I can set up the drivers, but other apps, such as CCDCiel do not connect them all. The latest Indistarter/Indiseerver will not show a connection for my ZWO cameras.
It connects to the mount and focuser with no issues.
I have no issue with kstars connecting all the equipment though.
I will let Patrick (he may see this post anyway) know of the issue with the Indi Server camera driver.
Without all the drivers connecting I cannot use CCDCiel.
I guess I need to contact ZWO support as well. Maybe they can tell me how to install the latedst ZWO camera drivers, as they are not necessary on Macs.

Hello Patrick.
Thank you for your work with CCDCiel and the new Indistarter/server for OSX.
I installed the latest Indistarter version and loaded the equipment drivers, but the server will not connect to my ZWO camera(s). I do not have any problems with kstars connecting to all the equipment though.
There may be an issue with the ZWO driver for the Indistarter package.
I will contact ZWO support to see if they can help with this issue.

Hi Fivel,

Can you please continue the discussion in the other thread because it is not good to follow an issue at two different place:
www.indilib.org/forum/development/4881-i...ution-for-macos.html

But there is no need to contact ZWO for that, as I say this driver build is experimental and I not have the require hardware for testing.
Can you configure Indistarter to produce a trace: in the Setup menu specify a log file and in Server options add -vv , then run only the ZWO driver, try to connect the camera and post the log file in the other thread.
