An open source, straightforward, scalable, industrial-grade technology for global software interoperability

The Ingescape library brings software interoperability without breaking your existing code or your preferred work environment. It offers an easy path to model-based system integration, with clear architecture and interface contracts.

Ingescape library source code

The Ingescape library is free and open source under the Mozilla Public License v2, enabling both free and commercial exploitation of any software using the library. The library can be found on the ZeroMQ github pages as a part of the various ZeroMQ libraries, bindings and tools.

Ingescape library binaries

The binaries for the Ingescape library are available for Microsoft Windows, Linux and macOS. They are part of the Ingescape Circle installer with automatic updates.

Bindings for other languages

The Ingescape library is initially developed in C. We provide bindings for a series of other languages. Please let us know if your preferred language is missing.

A game-changing solution to orchestrate all your software together

Whether your software is new or already existing, less than one hundred lines of code are generally enough to make your software interoperate with any other Ingescape-enabled software. Ingescape is unique in bringing a simple yet powerful set of communication paradigms to design, implement and operate the most advanced digital systems.

Design, build, operate

Mainly on local networks and virtualized architectures but highly connected with the rest of the world, by combining new and/or existing software & hardware, you can define, develop and deploy your software systems with a flexibility that did not exist before.

Rely on a model-driven approach

Ingescape enables multidisciplinary teams to collaborate from early prototypes to operational deployment and validation. The various profiles in your team will rely on the simple yet powerful Ingescape models, supported by our intuitive visual tools, to smoothly build ideas, refine them and ultimately put them into operation.

Ingescape Software Library

A multi-OS, multi-language, portable software library to easily create and adapt software for your systems and platforms.

The software library is

  • designed to easily create new software and to quickly and lightly integrate with existing software code
  • developed in C with minimum dependencies which are all open source without commercial restriction
  • packaged for Windowsmany Linux systems, macOS, IOS, Android, etc
  • also available in C++, C#, Python, Javascript, Qt/QML, Java, etc.

The library supports

  • a fully decentralizedhigh performance, low latency software network layer for communications between agents
  • a simple yet powerful set of  paradigms to connect all the agents on your operational platform
  • self-discovery between software agents, data serializationextension mechanismsadvanced log management and much more…

Let's get a little bit technical...

The Ingescape library relies on the amazing ZeroMQ network layer

  • Enable custom network integration wherever needed, when performancesecurity or redundancy become critical,
  • Install advanced network patterns that will cover or improve features brought by the most common software bus families… but without losing simplicity :
    • MoM: Message oriented Middlewares
    • ESB: EnterpriseServiceBuses
    • DDS: DataDistributionServices

  • Enable multithreading programmingtimers and mainloops for advanced agents logic, real-time constraints, and third-party software integration
  • Go beyond TCP/IP to increase performancesecurity or robustness (multicast, IPC, TIPC, shared memory, etc.)

Ingescape Library vs. Ingescape Circle

Ingescape Circle is available under a commercial license with a free basic version and various commercial options. It is designed as an optional companion for the library and does not cause any dependency on your projects and the library itself. You are free to use Ingescape Circle or not  at any stage of your projects without any legal or technical side-effect. Ingescape Circle is designed to make your life easier and to support large and complex projects efficiently.

Why did we create Ingescape?

  • 01
    Modern complex systems are interactive, distributed and heterogeneous.
  • 02
    Network programming and system integration are always a hassle... and should not be!
  • 03
    Building a platform engages many stakeholders with different views, skills and needs : system engineers, software developers, hardware experts, end-users, marketing, designers, human factors, activity experts, etc.
  • 04
    During its evolution in time, a platform’s foundations should be strong and its structure should be flexible, from the early works to the operational exploitation.
