Is there a ROS 2 bag GUI?

asked 2019-06-20 08:33:10 -0600

I understand that the former ROS bags are now in the form of an sqlite database. For now, I have tried using a tool like sqlitebrowser to inspect the contents of the bag/database recorded with rosbag2.

Is there an rqt plugin (a.k.a. rqt-bag) for ROS 2 so re-playing just specific topics, or quickly checking their data (e.g., via plots) is more user-friendly?

I found a discourse discussion where someone made an online tool for inspecting rosbags for ROS 1. I asked about their intentions for ROS2 rosbags (rosbag2), which they are not currently considering (yet). If there is however enough interest (enough user requests) they could add this feature in future. You could have a look here: . Obviously not a solution for you right now, but it could lead to a nice tool in the future.

There is not as for now. But given that the rqt packages are available, I believe we have all the components available to push forward on this. That is to say, I am happy to review PRs for this :)

Did you review any PR on this? or nobody has submitted any PR yet?
