./net/py-foolscap, RPC protocol for Twisted

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.13.1, Package name: py27-foolscap-0.13.1, Maintainer: kamel.derouiche

This is a ground-up rewrite of Perspective Broker, which itself is Twisted's
native RPC/RMI protocol (Remote Procedure Call / Remote Method Invocation).
If you have control of both ends of the wire, and are thus not constrained to
use some other protocol like HTTP/XMLRPC/CORBA/etc, you might consider using
Foolscap.

Fundamentally, Foolscap allows you to make a python object in one process
available to code in other processes, which means you can invoke its methods
remotely. This includes a data serialization layer to convey the object
graphs for the arguments and the eventual response, and an object reference
system to keep track of which objects you are connecting to. It uses a
capability-based security model, such that once you create a non-public
object, it is only accessible to clients to whom you've given the
(unguessable) FURL. You can of course publish world-visible objects that
have well-known FURLs.

Log message:
all: migrate homepages from http to https

pkglint -r --network --only "migrate"

As a side-effect of migrating the homepages, pkglint also fixed a few
indentations in unrelated lines. These and the new homepages have been
checked manually.

Release 0.13.1

This release adds a minor feature to "flappclient": it now pays \ 
attention to
a pair of environment variables named $FOOLSCAP_TOR_CONTROL_PORT and
$FOOLSCAP_TOR_SOCKS_PORT. If set, the client will install a connection
handler that routes "tor:" -type FURLs through a Tor daemon at the given
ports (both of which are endpoint descriptors, e.g. "tcp:localhost:9050").

To use this, install the "tor" extra, like "pip install \ 
foolscap[tor]". If
this extra was not installed (e.g. "txtorcon" is not importable), the
environment variables will be ignored.

This release also improves the reliability of the unit test suite
(specifically test_reconnector) on slower systems.

Release 0.13.0

This release fixes compatibility with the latest Twisted-17.9.0 and changes
the way logfiles are encoded.

Foolscap's "flogtool" event-logging system can be configured to \ 
serialize log
events into "Incident Files". In previous versions, these were serialized
with the stdlib "pickle" module. However a recent change to Twisted's
"Failure" class made them unpickleable, causing Foolscap's unit test \ 
suite to
fail, and also affect applications which foolscap.logging.log.msg() with
Failures as arguments. And untrusted pickles were unsafe to load anyways.

This release replaces pickle with JSON, making it safe to use "flogtool"
utilities on untrusted incident files. All new incident files created by this
version will use JSON, and all tools (e.g. "flogtool dump") can only handle
JSON-based files.

This also resolves a problem with tox-2.9.0, which caused tests to not run at
all because nothing was installed into the test environment.
