For the accelerators driven by the distributed control system like EPICS, control engineers solve the problem to make the devices work, while accelerator physicists dedicate themselves to make the machine run as the physics predicted. To fill the gap between the physics high-level controls and the low-level device controls, we developed a software framework that can help the users like accelerator physicists and operators, to work well with the machine in an object-oriented way, based on which the implementations for the physics control algorithms could be very efficient, understandable and maintainable.* Meanwhile, the modularized UI widgets are developed to standardize the high-level GUI applications development, to greatly reuse the codebase and ease the development. The most important thing is all the development also apply to other EPICS based accelerators. In this contribution, the design and implementation for both interactive Python scripting controls and high-level GUIs development will be addressed.
