-*- Mode: Outline -*- This library aims to be an implementation of the D-BUS specification. * Introduction If you don't want to hack on this, you can stop reading at this point and delete the directory containing this file. Okay, you are still here. * Development resources The official source code repository of this project is managed in git. To get a copy of the recent development tree, visit: http://github.com/blitz/cl-dbus There is currently no fancy project page, bug tracker or whatever. Please coordinate your effort with js at alien8 dot de or use github's communication methods to reach me. * Setting up a D-Bus server to play with Verbose mode is disabled in production builds of dbus, so you need to compile your own dbus-daemon. Grab the source and build it with verbose mode enabled via something like: git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/dbus/dbus cd dbus ; sh autogen.sh ./configure --enable-verbose-mode --enable-asserts --prefix=$HOME/local make && make install Now you can start it via: DBUS_VERBOSE=1 ~/local/bin/dbus-daemon --session --print-address It prints a lot of debug chatter. Near the end is the session address, which looks something like: unix:abstract=/tmp/dbus-9ucTJli40r,guid=bc23bec2cc2ae2bd45f1477b4b5f6f3d Pass this string to DBUS-CONNECT. * Some notes ** Implementation-specific code An effort has been made to include no implementation-specific code, but to rely on various wrapper libraries. This increases the amount of dependencies somewhat, but frees CL-DBUS from a lot of clutter. ** Endianness Due to simplicity I plan only to support host endianness for outgoing messages, i.e. every message we compose ourselves. Incoming messages should be parsable regardless of their endianness. * Information The D-BUS spec: http://dbus.freedesktop.org/doc/dbus-specification.html
