New issue 2879 by matthew....@kitware.com: support for event streams
What version are you running?
Describe the enhancement and the motivation for it.
It would be really great if RB supported event streams a la
(especially for porting third-party tools - e.g. auto-builders - using
gerrit event streams to RB).
Please provide any additional information below.
Obviously this is a candidate for an extension, but would be a neat place
to start on a pool of 'official' extensions.
The 'tricky' part is what to use for IPC, since the RB server needs to be
able to throw events 'over the wall' to any listeners that may (or may not)
exist at the time. With Linux now being the only supported platform, one
possibility is to use the dbus system bus that exists on most modern Linux
systems. To that end, in the hope it may be useful, I've attached some
initial experiments I did in that direction. The client (dbus-cli.py) is
more or less complete, except would obviously need to be named differently.
The server component would optimally be integrated into the extension (so,
basically take the dbus-srv.py code and meld it onto something based on
RBWebHooks, with a more complete signal set). The dbus config to allow use
of the system bus would be a template that needs to be modified by the site
installer to have the appropriate context for the RB server, based on how
the RB server is set up.
