One of the unique features of the GoPiGo is the availability of programming examples in multiple languages. Another strength of the GoPiGo as a platform “was” the establishment of a simple API upon which users could build behaviors that other users could directly use.
While I was expecting that DI would at some point release a Classes version of the Function based Python API, my expectation was that it would be mostly cosmetic - a Class around the Function APIs, with Class constants, and setters/getters for Class vars.
The gopigo3.py class methods use hardware layer parameters and units, and above that seems to be the EasyGoPiGo3.py classes that use robot/world parameters and units. The shock is that the simple functional API of the (GoPiGo/)gopigo.py is totally re-imagined.
Evolution is inevitable, and I do see beauty in the new interface design. I just wasn’t expecting this much change.
(I was also hoping that all method defs would be documented in-line with allowed values, ranges, and units, or documented at the top of the module.)
