Emulate a Hexabus device using libhexabus

Libhexabus provides you with an abstraction class to make the emulation of hexabus devices on a linux machine simple.


A hello world example could look like this:

#include <iostream>
#include <boost/asio/io_service.hpp>
#include <libhexabus/device.hpp>

boost::asio::io_service io_service;
std::string myDeviceName = "example";

std::string readDeviceName() {
	return myDeviceName;

void writeDeviceName(const std::string& name) {
	myDeviceName = name;

std::string helloWorld() {
	return "Hello, World!";

int main() {
	hexabus::Device device(io_service, "eth1", "bbbb::1");


	hexabus::EndpointRegistry ep_registry;
	hexabus::EndpointRegistry::const_iterator ep_it;

	ep_it = ep_registry.find(90);
	hexabus::TypedEndpointFunctions<std::string>::Ptr helloWorldEP = ep_it != ep_registry.end()
		? hexabus::TypedEndpointFunctions<std::string>::fromEndpointDescriptor(ep_it->second)
		: hexabus::TypedEndpointFunctions<std::string>::Ptr(new hexabus::TypedEndpointFunctions<std::string>(90, "Hello World!"));
