I am trying to figure out from where to start reading the code, which file does the execution starts from etc. Can someone please help?
I feel the documentation for contributing to the code speaks nothing about the structure of the project/code base. Also, I am an electronic hardware designer and don't have much experience dealing with system software and/or large code.
Any help will be greatly appreciated :)

Unfortunately 4diac FORTE is quite hard to get into. One reason is that we did quite some optimizations towards memory and CPU usage. The second is the many different operating systems and devices we are supporting. Therefore I think it makes more sense to look into the code for dedicated use cases. E.g., the IO code or the threading code. What do you want to understand from 4diac FORTE code?

Hm.. Okay. I am looking to integrate the ADS1118 that I have interfaced with a raspberry pi in my board (OpenPLC). It is connected over SPI. I also plan to have a script like the one for plcnext, conmelon etc dedicated for OpenPLC.

I still think the best option here would be to go with the new IO interface. The most complete reference implementation is the embrick one which is also SPI based. However this is rather complicate to understand. I guess better would be to have a look at the new Wago code, which is more limited but better for starting. Maybe also Jose who did the Wago impl can give some hints.
