Build Status

Attempt to make Toxcore accessible in Julia. Toxcore, ToxAv and ToxDNS have been wrapped.

Wrapping method

C-enums have been wrapped as global consts like this.

typealias TOX_USER_STATUS Uint32
const TOX_USER_STATUS_NONE = @compat (UInt32)(0)
const TOX_USER_STATUS_AWAY = @compat (UInt32)(1)
const TOX_USER_STATUS_BUSY = @compat (UInt32)(2)

They are being exported. Functions have been wrapped like this:

function tox_self_set_status(tox,user_status)

They are NOT being exported. Instead they can be found within Toxcore.CInterface. The idea is to easily identify C-calls in the code.

Toxcore.CInterface.tox_self_set_status_message(tox, message, length(message), C_NULL)

Tox_Options has been wrapped like this.

immutable Tox_Options


Apart from the basic wrapping the attempt is to create a Julia-style Toxcore API. This is independent from the concrete wrapping implementation used. The idea is to keep function names for a first Toxcore-close API, but to overcome any C-specific limitations. This includes altering return values and arguments.

  1. Replace (..., const uint8_t * pointer_to_some_array, size_t array_length, ...) by (..., data::Fitting_type, ...)
  2. => Don't need to expose some functions - like tox_friend_get_name_size
  3. Messages etc. are UTF8String
  4. Have some new types: ToxPublicKey, ToxAddress (do we really want this & more to come?)

Unfortunately this requires some work and we are not so far yet. How it is intended to work and anything that works can be seen from the super-awesome chat-bot example.

However here is how far we are for Toxcore (av&dns nothing done yet)


tox_options_default() returns default Tox_Options struct

Tox *   tox_new()

Tox * 	tox_new(options::Tox_Options, savedata::Vector{Uint8})

void 	tox_kill (Tox *tox)

tox_get_savedata (tox::Ptr{Tox})	returns an array of Unit8

tox_bootstrap(tox::Ptr{Tox}, host::ASCIIString, port, public_key::ToxPublicKey)

uint32_t 	tox_iteration_interval (tox::Ptr{Tox})

void 	tox_iterate (tox::Ptr{Tox})

tox_self_get_friend_list(tox::Ptr{Tox}) - returns an array with the friend list

tox_friend_get_name(tox::Ptr{Tox}, friend_number::Integer) 	returns "" if the friend does not exist. utf8 encoding expected
