The XPDF project aims to provide a hands-off data service for users to produce X-ray Pair Distribution Function data. The software will be accessible to non-expert users, allowing scientists from a variety of disciplines to get PDF data without knowledge of the details of X-ray powder diffraction and with minimal intervention from beamline staff. The software for the project uses several of the technologies already developed by Diamond Light Source and other facilities to allow the automatic processing of X-ray powder diffraction data, including Dawn (Data Analysis Workbench), GDA (Generic Data Acquisition), iSPyB and SynchWeb. The interactions of these different applications and the greater XPDF software project will be presented.
