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. So I'm going to work on a GObject based zypp API that will replace the C++ one in the future.

Goal for this Hackweek

  • Lay the groundwork for the GObject based zypp APIs
  • Be able to control it from Python
  • Have basic functionality, like listing the actual repositories
  • ( Maybe have support for the new async media backend )

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
