kDrive by Weinzierl Engineering is a powerful software development kit (SDK) for KNX communication via KNX standard interfaces on the telegram level. It is implemented as a cross-platform software component library with a high grade of flexibility. kDrive defines a complete ecosystem for the rapid development of KNX applications on platforms with POSIX (like) operating systems, such as Linux and Windows. Application programming interfaces (APIs) are available in C++, C and .NET.
The purpose of kdrive is to enable the development of KNX software on different operating systems. It can be the basis for visualization tools as well as for individual management clients. A common use case is the implementation of test tools for production. The kdrive library can be used for all media in KNX as well as for different configuration modes. kDriveExpress is the binary distribution of the kDrive Library. It is available as free and as commercial license.
The following components are currently available in the framework of kDriveExpress:
