From: Quentin Glidic <sardemff7+...@sardemff7.net> We discussed on IRC about races between the several event sources that exist in libweston, libwayland and compositor code. Adding a priority system in the event loop is a first step to fix these potential races and help cope with bad clients. A second issue is that compositor writers are usually used to some specific event loop library (GLib, Qt, libev or any other) with differences in APIs and some frameworks are tied to one.
To make things easier to compositor writers, here is a draft for an event loop API abstraction that should allow to pick any library to work with libweston. (Still lacking the signal handling part.) Sending as RFC to check if the API is fine by Weston contributors before migrating all the codebase to it. Cheers, Quentin Glidic (2): libweston: Add event loop abstraction API compositor-x11: Use event loop abstraction API compositor/main.c | 182 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++-- libweston/compositor-x11.c | 64 ++++++++-------- libweston/compositor.c | 86 +++++++++++++++++++++ libweston/compositor.h | 67 +++++++++++++++++ 4 files changed, 358 insertions(+), 41 deletions(-) -- 2.15.1 _______________________________________________ wayland-devel mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/wayland-devel
