We want to share a tool we created for ourself:
It’s a dynamic parameter modification tool, just like the RQT plugin but as a standalone application.
Since it’s driven by our own requirements, it has some additional features over RQT and is missing some features RQT has.
The driving feature missing from RQT was the ability to collapse parameters in a tree structure, which is possible in our tool. The text box at the top allows for quick filtering of parameters by substring. All available nodes are listed on the left (refreshing continuously), and parameters are only displayed for a single node at a time.
Instead of QT, the tool is implemented using dear-imgui.
You can install it using
sudo apt install ros-humble-rig-reconfigure or your local equivalent, it’s also released for iron and rolling! Run it using
ros2 run rig_reconfigure rig_reconfigure.
Feel free to try it, and let us know if it’s useful to you!
