Explore the API reference for a list of available nodes and the test/graphs directory of the corresponding GitHub repositories for examples.


Useful tools and helpers can be found here: timeflux.helpers.

In particular, you may want to have a look at:

  • timeflux.helpers.viz to generate images from applications, which is very useful to visually debug your application

  • timeflux.helpers.handler if you need to deploy experiments on Windows systems and need to integrate with other software components

If you are developing plugins:



Work in progress!

The timeflux_ui plugin exposes a powerful JavaScript API to build web apps and interact with Timeflux instances from a browser. Extensive documentation is on its way. Meanwhile, we invite you to explore the available example apps.
