HIPE

Splash screen of HIPE

HIPE stands for Herschel Interactive Processing Environment. It is an open source, multi-platform graphical environment to reduce and analyse your Herschel data.

These pages give you a quick overview of HIPE as well as an introduction on how to contribute to it.

The name HIPE was chosen for several reasons including its resemblance (at least in pronounciation) with hype; the latter being defined as:

  • blatant or sensational promotion
  • extravagant or intensive publicity or promotion
which sounds ... just about right smile


Overview

This section explains the philosophy behind the framework and provides a brief overview of its fundamental elements. The aim is to enable you to make contributions to HIPE.

Contributing

HIPE is an extensible environment: you can make contributions to it by developing tools that manipulate data, a new perspective, a new view, a new data visualization component and so forth. Simply by registering such a component in a Jython package, HIPE automatically picks up your contribution.

Blue led Getting started with HIPE development

This tutorial will teach you the following:

  1. How to obtain the source code of HIPE.
  2. How to use the Eclipse development environment to modify a component of HIPE.
  3. How to put back the modified component into HIPE to see the result of your changes.

Blue led Adding components to views

The contents of certain views can be extended by developers, such as the Outline View and the Editor Area. Both are examples of the system reacting on a data selection made by the user.

Here we explain how you can contribute to the outline view and the editor area.

Blue led Adding views

You can develop new views and add them to the work-bench of HIPE. This section briefly explains how to do this.

Blue led Adding perspectives

If you think that a set of (new) views should be presented in standard layout, you can do so by creating a new perspective. Such a perspective defines how these views are laid out in tabs and split panes. This section briefly explains how to contribute a new perspective.

Blue led Adding preferences

This section explains the relationship between preferences and properties in HIPE, and how you can contribute to:

  • Introduce preferences and develop a GUI panel for them in your module.
  • Make a bridge between preferences and existing properties.
  • Use preferences in client code.
  • Listen to changes in preferences to adapt your functionality dynamically.

Blue led Registering your contribution

You must register your contribution (whether it is a tool, perspective, view, component to views or component to the editor area) to HIPE to make it part of the application. Registering means that you have to write add an entry to the jython package module (aka __init__.py) within the sub-system that is under your control.

This section explains the workings of the registry works and how it can automatically find your contribution.

Blue led Common utilities

This section explains additional useful information for HIPE developers, both for contributors with views, editors, etc. and for maintainers of the HIPE framework.
