I just wanted to give a quick update on the status of qauld. After doing
some design work and (not very successful) prototyping, I currently have
a pretty good idea of how it will be set up for actual use with clients,
and how I want a basic proof of concept chat client to look.
The `qauld` daemon itself will use a UDP netmod bound to the localhost
address for clients to communicate with. These clients can then take
advantage of any connections `qauld` makes to other nodes.
A few challenges remain. First, the `subscribe` method needs
implemented, which I'm currently working on (in a branch isolated from
the `store` changes, which aren't working right now.) Second, the RPC
bindings aren't there yet. That's okay for getting started, but once the
basic auth/send/receive of messages are set up, that'll be the critical
Now that librobot is building and can be run on Android, we can also
consider what we want that syncronous interface to look like, and if we
want to mirror it at all in the RPC interface.
Logistically, I'm currently stuck in transit. I'll be on the call if I
can get cellular connectivity, but if not, I'll be in touch later and
I'll look at the notes doc.
