P2P data-update API suggestion

Tue Jan 03, 2017 9:28 pm

I'm looking for feedback on a project I'm thinking of starting, called "Onex".

Onex would be a C API for networking between devices, but not in the form of low-level messages that you hand-craft per application..

Instead, Onex would let you work with high-level data object updates, shared peer-to-peer.

It'd probably work in a mesh via proxy-cacheing nodes.

Here's my "design doc" for the Onex API:

.. https://github.com/DuncanCragg/Onex/blo ... ME-NOIF.md

What do people here think? Could such an API be useful?

(I began a similar topic, targeting education and games, here: viewtopic.php?f=68&t=167859 - this is the more generally-applicable concept..)
