TPd: 0th draft of our new event router

Lab News

We can’t claim it’s useful yet, but we’ve been working to put some of our insights about event-based programming into code. There’s a fresh TPd page on our Wiki that describes our ‘microkernel’ approach to event routing, one where even cross-host subscription is an outboard shell script.

With a thin, stateless, event forwarding loop, we’re exploring two separate directions: agoric routing, to see if “price signals” for buying and selling news can function at all like a content routing service; and dataflow scripting to see if we can coin a convenient new way to teach programmers event-based architectural styles by simply binding variables to URLs ‘out there’ on the Web.
