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


For examples and more explanations, see the module level docs.

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.

__init__(self[, debug])

x.__init__(...) initializes x; see x.__class__.__doc__ for signature


Initialises component. Sets up a ReadFileAdapter to read the result of running 'fortune'.


Main body.

All the interesting work has been done by linking the file reader's output to our output. Messages sent to control are unchecked and the first message causes the component to exit.


Got a problem with the documentation? Something unclear that could be clearer? Want to help improve it? Constructive criticism is very welcome - especially if you can suggest a better rewording!

Please leave you feedback here in reply to the documentation thread in the Kamaelia blog.
