Post Writing teleop programs is super easy with Teleop Catalyst
Hello everyone,

Teleop Catalyst for RobotC is a Windows application that lets users "click together" pretty robust teleop programs using a simple, "click, command, create" workflow. While the user still needs to know how to write simple code such as
Code:
motor[ballSweeper] = 100;
, all the complexities of handling button presses, determining toggle states, driving, etc. are handled by my program and abstracted away from the user. I have included a couple screenshots below to help give you a better idea of what the catalyst does:

It is my hope that Teleop Catalyst will make the teleop programming aspect of the FTC competition as painless as possible. Also, since the RobotC code generated by the catalyst is fully commented and formatted, it is a great way for those new to the RobotC programming language to learn about how the teleop code works.

To learn more about Teleop Catalyst, and/or give it a spin, visit it's website at: http://tituswoo.com/project/catalyst

I hope you like it, and I can't wait to hear what you think! :)

Thank you for sharing this work with everyone. It looks really fantastic. Makes me wish I had a controller so I could try it out.

Thank you :D
It really means a lot to me to get feedback from the community!
I hope Teleop Catalyst will become one of those invaluable tools to help teams with the programming aspect of FTC
(and maybe, just maybe, convince some of them to make the switch to RobotC from Labview!) :)

What you did here was incredible! Nice work. I'll have to play around with it and write something on our blog as well.
