Building and Installing
You need libzmq and czmq prior to building fty-proto.
Using Open Build Service
Zeromq community maintain packages network:zeromq for a lot of Linux distributions. Check if your system is supported and install devel packagage of czmq (libczmq-dev, czmq-devel).
From source code
Here's how to build CZMQ from GitHub (building from packages is very similar, you don't clone a repo but unpack a tarball), including the libzmq (ZeroMQ core) library (NOTE: skip ldconfig on OSX):
git clone git://github.com/zeromq/libzmq.git cd libzmq ./autogen.sh # do not specify "--with-libsodium" if you prefer to use internal tweetnacl security implementation (recommended for development) ./configure --with-libsodium make check sudo make install sudo ldconfig cd .. git clone git://github.com/zeromq/czmq.git cd czmq ./autogen.sh && ./configure && make check sudo make install sudo ldconfig cd ..
Then build fty-proto itself
git clone git://github.com/42ity/fty-proto.git cd fty-proto ./autogen.sh && ./configure && make check sudo make install sudo ldconfig cd ..
See fty_proto.txt for API summary and example code.
fty-proto is developed through a test-driven process that guarantees no memory violations or leaks in the code:
- Modify a class or method.
- Update the test method for that class.
- Run the 'selftest' script, which uses the Valgrind memcheck tool.
- Repeat until perfect.
Always ask - can I make it simpler?
