The Swirl Project

Swirl Mascot, Messier Spiral Galaxy M74, also known as NGC 628

Swirl is an implementation of the IETF PPSP protocol, RFC7574 in Erlang/OTP, and released under the ALv2 license. It is currently incomplete.

Until the project's alpha status is removed, expect this repo to change quickly and without respecting any version numbers. Bugs are expected, but any reports or even patches would make my day/week/year.

Requirements

  • A modern UNIX system, although swirl will likely run on Windows, the compile-time dependencies are more complicated. Please contact the project if you want to build or run on Windows.
  • The most recent release of Erlang/OTP available. This is OTP 18.2 at time of writing, and is available from ESL for most platforms. This is strongly advised, instead of using a possibly inconsistent version from your OS packaging system.
  • A reasonable level of Erlang and PPSPP knowledge is anticipated.
  • If you are developing on / with swirl you will need a pre-built dialyzer plt. If you don't know what this is, just run make distclean plt each time you install/upgrade to a new Erlang/OTP release.

Usage

  • Use make as usual. It will retrieve dependencies, so internet is needed at least for the first run.
  • After building, a stand-alone command, ./swirl starts a simple peer on localhost:7777, without console access.
  • make console loads the full erlang application but you'll need to enter either swirl:start_peer(). for a single instance, or read the console help via swirl:help(). to see how to start multiple peers.

Developers

  • make distcheck cleans all build files out, compiles, and runs all tests, including common_test, and dialyzer.
  • make reindent uses vim to ensure your indentation is consistent.
  • more information is available in contributing.md

Example Usage

From a clean git checkout of git://github.com/skunkwerks/swirl, just run, supplying your root hash:

make all console
# erlang console is automatically launched
swirl:start("c89800bfc82ed01ed6e3bfd5408c51274491f7d4").
swirl:quit().

This peer should now be active, and able to participate in PPSPP swarms.

Here's what a sample session looks like from the above commands:

🌈  dch@akai % git clone git://github.com/skunkwerks/swirl && cd swirl
🌈  dch@akai % make console

use any of these commands, prefixed by `swirl:` to run:

help().                    these help notes
start().                   starts the swirl application, but no peers or swarms
stop().                    stops the swirl application and all peers and swarms
start(Options | Id).       starts a new swarm and peer on OS selected random port
start_swarm(Options | Id). starts a swarm using given options or swarm id
stop_swarm(Options | Id).  stops a swarm using given options or swarm id
start_peer().              starts a peer with default port
start_peer(Port).          starts a peer with given port
stop_peer().               stops a single peer on the default port
stop_peer(Port).           stops a single peer on the given port
start_pool(First, Last).   starts peers on consecutive ports from First to Last
stop_pool(First, Last).    stops peers on consecutive ports from First to Last
quit().                    immediately terminates the entire BEAM vm

e.g. swirl:start("c89800bfc82ed01ed6e3bfd5408c51274491f7d4").
use ^c twice to exit, or type `swirl:quit().` for a graceful shutdown.
