The Flightdeck-UI Online source code is now available under the GPL version 2. This is an advanced beta; few changes (if any) are anticipated before the stable release.
The distribution includes detailed installation instructions and two example control panels. The installation is designed to be a very simple process -- please contact the author if you have questions.

The goal of the Flightdeck-UI project is to apply ideas from aircraft instrumentation design to general purpose user interfaces.
The new web service version (Flightdeck-UI Online) retains the plug-in architecture of previous releases. Each plugin, however, may now be monitored at different sampling rates. Multiple data sources (hosts on the Internet, embedded devices, etc.) can be tracked simultaneously.
Also, virtually any Unix command that you enter from the shell can be automatically executed by Flightdeck-UI Online, and the results displayed by the system's virtual instruments.
Although the web service requires a Flash front end (developed using only the MTASC open source ActionScript compiler; see http://www.mtasc.org/) Flightdeck-UI Online is still primarily written in Python.
