diaGrabber -> read, process, plot, automate

diaGrabber is a module fully written in Python. Its main benefits are:

  • no restriction to 2- or 3-dimensional problems
  • handle unstructured data
  • no limitation of the size of source-files
  • interactive visualization of the readout of sources
  • compair and connect multiple source-files (also of different file-types like plainText or libreOfficeCalc)
  • fully automatable
  • powerfull options to manipulate and filter values
  • inter-/extrapolate between given points

some impressions:

compare different sources readout streams in realtime orking with n-dimensional problems


  • Python v2.7 (the programming lanuage itself)

  • pyqtgraph v.0.9.6 (for Plotting)
    • this module needs either pyQt4 or pySide to work
    • if you are using windows, install pySide (pyQt4 wont support all features)
  • ooolib (to read from open-/libreOffice-calc)

  • numpy/scipy (Python modules for numeric and scientific problems)

  • bottleneck (superfast NaN-array-handling)


  1. download and install all required modules.
  2. download diaGrabber, go to its main-directory and type in a termial:

... in Linux:

sudo python setup.py install

... in Windows

  • Start -> Run -> ‘cmd’

  • go to you download-directory and type:

    python setup.py install

If windows doesn’t know the commend ‘python’, try this.
