Mmh, what do you mean by "too large"?
As I mentioned, I was thinking of either creating a new native python client, or possibly joining efforts with an existing projects. What are your thoughts on that? Is npindi too complex?

That is good to know!
I was actually about to start my own implementation, but if I can find the time I might try to contribute to one of these.
geehalel implementation seems more mature, but also inactive in a couple of years.
@Jean-Luc do you have any insight on this?

I would be afraid that the Rust-based python extension would have similar problem..
Not that I don't trust your work, but given that not many people know Rust, it would be difficult to find someone helping you maintain it :\

Ideally, the best solution would be a simplified JSON interface written in C++ directly into the INDI server. That way, writing a client for python, or indeed any other language, would be much much simpler

This happened a lot before, and it's definitely gonna happen again.
As much as I appreciate the pyindi-client project, it's essentially just a workaround for automatic API generation.

I have to wonder if it wouldn't just be easier to write a native python client for the XML protocol, or possibly a c++ python wrapper exposing a simplified version of the API...

Hi all!

I was finally able to produce a stable, and more importantly, easy to install version, so a first "public beta" is available.

Release link:  github.com/GuLinux/StarQuew/releases/tag/0.1.0

Raspberry Pi image:  github.com/GuLinux/StarQuew-PiGen/releases/tag/0.1.0  (Instructions:  github.com/GuLinux/StarQuew-PiGen/blob/master/README.md )

And a video tutorial on how to use the program.
