Xaya Game Library
libxayagame is a C++ library that makes it easy to implement games on the
Xaya platform. It takes care of the interaction with
the Xaya Core daemon, so that game developers only have to implement the
rules of their game.
mover is a simple game using this library, where players
can move around an infinite plane. It is fully functional, although mainly
meant as example and/or basis for more complex games.
nonfungible is a simple implementation
of non-fungible assets on the Xaya platform. It is useful as another example
(of using the
for testing Democrit but also as an actual
application on Xaya for issuing and trading fungible and non-fungible tokens.
libxayagame and the example mover game, use the standard routine
for building autotools-based software:
autogen.sh && ./configure && make
After a successful build, you can optionally run
make check and/or
make install to run tests and install the library and
your system, respectively.
libxayagame has a couple of dependencies which need to be installed
for the configuration and/or build to be successful:
libjsoncpp: The Debian package
libjsoncpp-devcan be used.
jsonrpccpp: For Debian, the packages
libjsonrpccpp-toolsare not fresh enough. They need to be built from source; in particular, it must be a version that includes the commit
ZeroMQwith C++ bindings: Core ZeroMQ is available in the Debian package
libzmq3-dev. The C++ bindings need to be installed from the source repository, as the version in the Debian package (at least for Debain 10 "Buster") is too old.
zlib: Available in Debian as
- SQLite3 with the
In Debian, the
libsqlite3-devpackage can be installed. Alternatively, build from source and configure with
- LMDB: Available for Debian in the
glog: Available for Debian as
gflags: The package (
libgflags-dev) included with Debian can be used.
- [Protocol buffers]((https://developers.google.com/protocol-buffers/)
are used both in C++ and Python. On Debian, the packages
python-protobufcan be used.
For the unit tests, also the Google test framework is needed. The package included with Debian 10 "Buster" is not fresh enough, it should be built and installed from source instead.
For running the integration tests based on Python, install Python3 and
the jsonrpclib library. On Debian,
We also provide a Dockerfile, which can be used to build an image based on Debian that has all dependencies and libxayagame itself prebuilt and installed. (Hint: The file can also just serve as documentation for how to get all dependencies and build libxayagame yourself on a Debian system.)
Builds of this image are also published on Docker Hub.
