Re: [libvirt] Question about building libvirt.so



Thanks for the replies guys, libvirt-glib sure sounds interesting. On the other hand I was able to leave libvirt.so alone and write my own wrapper (based on libvirt/examples) for easy calls from NodeJS. I can get to list VMs, their config etc. from node but not able to list the operating system running on the VM (ubuntu, win7, etc.). I can get the os_type though (hvm in my case) but that does not tell me whether it is running a windows or a linux distro.

Depending on what parts of libvirt API you need to use from _javascript_,
libvirt-glib may be an option as it already makes some parts of libvirt API
accessible from _javascript_, see
http://libvirt.org/git/?p=libvirt-glib.git;a=blob;f=examples/conn-test.js;h=7f9784b8fc55a2be6c7596cfd365d4273d057a2e;hb=HEAD
for example. I don't know if this would be usable from nodejs?
If this is a good fit for what you need, patches extending the libvirt API
wrapped by libvirt-glib are very welcome ;)
