AB - Taurus is a popular solution for rapid creation of Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) for experiment control and data acquisition (even by non-programmers) *. Taurus is best known for its ability to interact with the Tango and Epics control systems, and thus it is mainly used in large facilities. However, Taurus also provides mechanisms to interact with other sources of data, and it is well suited for creating GUIs for even the smallest labs where the overhead of a distributed control system is not desired. This scalability together with its ease-of-use and the uncontested popularity of Python among the scientific users, make Taurus an attractive framework for a wide range of applications. In this work we discuss some practical examples of usage of Taurus ranging from a very small experimental setup controlled by a single Raspberry Pi, to large facilities synchronising an heterogeneous set of hundreds of machines running a variety of operating systems.
