|Title:||Code Generation based on IFML for the User Interfaces of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA)||Authors:||Brambilla, M.

In this context, a number of Graphical User Interfaces (GUI) have to be designed and built to be used for monitoring and control, testing, simulation, integration, commissioning and maintenance. The Tango framework and its UI tools, selected for SKA in 2015, support the types of basic control interfaces currently used at both radio telescopes and within high energy physics experiments. This paper reports on the development of a Qt/Taurus code generator prototype based on the IFML (Interaction Flow Modeling Language) standard and respective modeling tools, that are extended for supporting the platform-specific code generation. The purpose of this work is to enable the use of low-code development in SKA GUI design, thus enabling increased efficiency, reliability and coherency of the produced UI. We present a simple GUI use case as complete example of software development cycle starting from requirements and including IFML modelling, Qt/Taurus automatic coding, interface evaluation and validation.||Conference Name:||17th Biennial International Conference on Accelerator and Large Experimental Physics Control Systems (ICALEPCS 2019)||Conference Place:||New York, United States||Conference Date:||7-11 October, 2019||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12386/30015||URL:||https://jacow.org/icalepcs2019/doi/JACoW-ICALEPCS2019-WEPHA093.html
