This paper presents RoboComp, an open-source component-oriented robotics framework. Ease of use and low development effort has proven to be two of the key issues to take into account when building frameworks. Due to the crucial role of development tools in these questions, this paper deeply describes the tools that make RoboComp more than just a middleware. To provide an overview of the developer experience, some examples are given throughout the text. It is also compared to the most open-source relevant projects with similar goals, specifying its weaknesses and strengths
