We really like Ricochet but the application is a monolithic Qt-based one.
We are developing this library for those reasons:
Different frontends – like ncurses
Possibility to build bots
Easier to extend the protocol using new channel types (adding these is meant to be easy using our library)
Stability and Security
Don’t use this project unless you are developing on it. It is probably neither stable nor secure and far from being finished.
Building and Documentation
We tested everything using the following nix-workflow but you should also get it to work using stack or cabal.
cabal2nix . > haskell-ricochet.nix nix-shell -A env # for dependencies cabal configure cabal build cabal haddock # documentation cabal repl # for playing around cabal test # tests (need tor running with control port open)
