April 2024 - This site, and Kamaelia are being updated. There is significant work needed, and PRs are welcome.


Whole File Writer

This component accepts file creation jobs and signals the completion of each jobs. Creation jobs consist of a list [ filename, contents ] added to "inbox". Completion signals consist of the string "done" being sent to "outbox".

All jobs are processed sequentially.

This component does not terminate.


class WholeFileWriter(Axon.Component.component)

WholeFileWriter() -> component that creates and writes files

Uses [ filename, contents ] structure to file creation messages in "inbox"


  • control : UNUSED
  • inbox : file creation jobs


  • outbox : filename written
  • signal : UNUSED

Methods defined here


You should be using the inbox/outbox interface, not these methods (except construction). This documentation is designed as a roadmap as to their functionalilty for maintainers and new component developers.



Main loop

writeFile(self, filename, data)

Writes the data to a new file
