A Qt based flow diagram editor with main focus on image processing. It uses the OpenCV computer vision library and offers simple access to most of the basic functionality. If you want to participate in this project feel free to contact the developers!

To install the software flodiedi, open a shell and type in:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:philip5/extra
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:freedev/flodiedi
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install flodiedi

Please note, that this software depends on OpenCV version 2.3, built in the ppa:philip5/extra.
Maybe you need to add this ppa, before installing flodiedi (see above).

From that ppa you can also install libopenni-dev to use images of Kinect or Xtion 3D cameras.

sudo apt-get install libopenni-dev

In order to start the editor, run

This command should also be available in the gnome menu/dash/whatsoever.
To execute a completed flow diagram, you can use

FlowExecute <nameofdiagram>.xml

If you want to start developing your own plugins, you should first remove flodiedi, but
keep the dependencies.

In you favorite source directory you can get the source code by either calling

sudo apt-get source flodiedi

or get the sources using git from sourceforge (one of the lines is needed, second one requires sourceforge login and
maybe invitation to or joining the developer group).
(read-only) git clone git://
(read/write) git clone ssh://<your-sourceforge-user-name>

Get the remaining build dependencies by calling:

apt-get build-dep flodiedi

cd to your flodiedi build directory, create a build directory, call cmake and make install.
NOTE: You have to call
sudo make install
to make the software work correctly. Or you need some script that copies all of the plugin libraries to ONE folder.
