Project Description

Currently we are in a situation with libzypp where we have a C++ based and hard to use API. Due to the nature of C++ it's basically impossible to use it from other languages like Rust or even Python.

In the last hackweek I layed the grounds for calling into libzypp via GLib, so I'm going to improve on that trying to wrap the legacy reports into a new style report API and maybe expose more functionality.

Goal for this Hackweek

  • Wrap new C++ event API in GLib-C
  • Catch and forward legacy reports via said API
  • Expose more functionality as we go

I already started to look into it, development will be done here: https://github.com/bzeller/libzypp/tree/zyppng-api

      So during the hackweek I managed to set up a very basic GObject based API that is able to initialize libzypp, list the names of all currenty known repositories and use the new async libzypp API to download a file. This is a good start and we should be able to build on it.

      You can see the resulting python script that is controlling libzypp here
