Data ingestion in Xi-CAM

What is an ingestor?

The ingestor design is specified by the Databroker team to provide an entrypoint for data generated external from the Bluesky environment. An ingestor is a Callable that accepts a URI (often a local file path) and yields (name, doc) pairs. The yielded data follows the Bluesky event-model structure (see event-model documentation). Synthesizing these event-model documents is made easier with the RunBuilder (see Bluesky-Live documentation).
