Craig, I believe you probably did something wrong if you had to work with some library directly. Actually you generate classes from text description and just use them. I worked with Thrift some time ago, in 2015 . I wouldn't call it awkward. Protobuf is fine too, but unfortunately we don't have any Protobuf-related projects this time. Also it's probably worth noticing that the GSoC project doesn't imply using any existing libraries, only the binary format which is quite stable. Christos, I appreciate your interest in the Thrift-related project. You should know however that we already have a student interested in it . Feel free to apply for it as well but in this case be prepared for a little competition. : https://github.com/afiskon/scala-thrift-example/blob/master/src/test/scala/me/eax/examples/thrift/tests/BinaryProtocol.scala#L15 : https://postgr.es/m/CA%2BSXE9sP1iHNp9_DFJzdbE0cszAA-QF8d-8GAUyoCA4q9KCsGw%40mail.gmail.com -- Best regards, Aleksander Alekseev
