Unfortunately, orocos.org was down since mid August and we have not found a quick and easy way to fix it. It is planned to create a new website and also restore the contents of the Wiki that are still up-to-date.
If you have questions, comments or want to contribute to this temporary page, please open an issue or pull request at https://github.com/orocos/orocos.github.io.
Most of the manuals linked below should probably be rewritten in Markdown
to be rendered by Jekyll.
Contributions are welcome!
Binary builds are currently only available for Linux through ROS.
For ROS users:

The Orocos Toolchain is your primary tool to create real-time robotics applications using modular, run-time configurable software components.
- Multi-platform support: Linux, Windows (Visual Studio) and Mac OS X
- Extensions to other robotics frameworks: ROS, Rock, Yarp
- Code generators to transfer user-defined data between distributed components
- Run-time & real-time configurable and scriptable components
- Logging and reporting of system events and communicated data
It consists of:
- AutoProj, A tool to download and compile the necessary libraries (optional)
- The Real-Time Toolkit, a component framework that allows us to write real-time components in C++
- The Orocos Component Library, the necessary components to start an application and interact with it at run-time
- OroGen and TypeGen,
tools to generate ready-to-compile-and-run code from existing headers or component description files
Components built by users of Orocos are hosted in their own repositories.
