Re: Bindings for a 3rd-party library

OK I'm returning to this after a long period of not doing anything ...

This part does *something:

    basename => 'GtkFlow'
  , version  => '0.2'
  , package  => 'GtkFlow'

 ... because if I don't adjust my LD_LIBRARY_PATH, I get errors about
missing libraries. When I set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to where I installed
libgtkflow, the errors disappear.

However, that's as far as I get. The next part:


 ... gives errors like:

I'm wondering ... how much work is involved in getting Perl bindings
for this library working? I guess it would depend on how it's written?
Or does the introspection that comes along with gtk3 make it generally
an easy task?

Something like this should get you started:

  Glib::Object::Introspection->setup (
    basename => 'GtkFlow',
    version => '0.2',
    package => 'GtkFlow'); # or whatever package you prefer

  GtkFlow::Source->new (...)
  GtkFlow::Sink->new (...)

Aha. Thanks :)

Sadly, the library is written in Vala and uses Gee, which means that
some of its functions — especially the ones that deal with collections
— will not be introspectable, and thus will not be available in any
language *except* Vala.
