Telepathy Inspector is a telepathy client (GTK+) whose objective is to expose all interfaces and functionalities implemented by a given connection manager along with its connections, channels, etc.
The idea is to enable the user (likely to be a Telepathy developer) to easily view and access all methods and interfaces of all Telepathy entities (CMs, connections, etc), which could not be easily achieved using a regular telepathy client since it would (and should!) hide all Telepathy logic behind a pleasant, usability oriented, GUI.
As it's only the first version (0.1), only those main interfaces are exposed:
It can be downloaded from Tapioca's svn (inside sourceforge):
There's also a mockup connection manager to play around with:
They both implement 0.13 spec.
- As a learning tool
It should be a good starting point for new Telepathy developers to get acquainted with the specification by seeing all interfaces, methods, etc at work.
- As a reference implementation for clients
A client developer can, for instance, see what features are not being handled correctly or are missing in his application.
- As a tester/debugger tool for connection manager developers
Developers can directly use their connection managers and see exactly how it behaves from a client's point of view.
Developed by the Tapioca (INdT) team, it shows our active commitment to Telepathy project, since we merged efforts towards a common Communications Framework.
I hope Tapioca (INdT) and Telepathy (Collabora) can really work side-by-side towards that common objective, since it would be win-win game for everyone.
