Hello Volunteer Experts.
I’ve read a lot of the Ignition SDK Programmer’s Guide, a few times, and I’m still having trouble getting started. If you haven’t guessed yet I’m not a professional software architect or software developer, I’m a not-so-typical automation engineer. As far as I can tell I’ve installed all the required software per the instructions (Git, Maven, Netbeans 12.4 for my IDE…changed the default JDK from 16 to 11 etc.) and its all working. Following the Ignition vision-component example I thought I could use this as a template and expected to find some Java classes that I would edit in the Swing design tab but only source tabs exist. How to I start? I cloned ignition-module-tools from GitHub but don’t know what to do with them. Most of you clever folks know this inside and out…is there some kind of template or step-by-step guide for newbies? Any help would be appreciated.
