The coding period of the Google Summer of Code is now over since this Monday, and it's time to give to the Haiku Community a debrief of what has been done on my initial project, what has been modified, and what remains to do. The Kit. First of all, let's talk about the good news. Among others things, I introduced most of the classes required to make HTTP requests over the network, just like the cURL library allows you to do.
It's been a month and half since the very beginning of the GSoC coding period, and this is my first blog post about Services Kit. In fact, it's quite difficult to write interesting things for both developers and non-developers, I waited to have some materials before writing a report of my work and ... it's time ! If you manage to build complex applications over the original BeOS Network Kit, you will quickly face a major problem.
Haiku is currently missing a subsystem allowing application to be connected to Web 2.0, although this is becoming important relatively to the interaction between users and "the world" through the Internet. The development of the Services Kit would permits to Haiku applications to access various web services, such as micro-blogging (twitter, ...), pasting services (pastebin, pastie, ...), social networks (last.fm, ...).
