I havent started coding it yet, but I've been planning it a fair bit. Below is what I've come up with so far:

  • XML Configuration
    This is the basic model:
    <TclSigXConfig version="[string]/required" licenseAgree="[boolean]/required">

        <userOptions username="[string]/required" type="default|override/required">
            <!-- individual user settings here -->
        <account accountId="[string]/optional(default)" username="[string]/required" passwordType="tagBack|fileBack|filePlain/required" password="[string]/optional()" protocol="sigx|costine/optional(sigx)" serverAddress="[string]/optional([protocolDefined])" serverPort="[integer]/optional([protocolDefined])" />
            <!-- there will be multiple ways to specify module options, as shown below -->
            <moduleName option="[string]/optional([subTagSettings])" overrideUser="[boolean]/optional(false)" value="[moduleDefined]/optional()" accountId="[string]/optional(default)" allAccounts="[boolean]/optional(true)" />
            <moduleName option="[string]/optional([subTagSettings])" overrideUser="[boolean]/optional(false)" accountId="[string]/optional(default)" allAccounts="[boolean]/optional(true)">[moduleDefined]/required if no value attibute</moduleName>
            <moduleName overrideUser="[boolean]/optional(false)" accountId="[string]/optional" allAccounts="[boolean]/optional(true)">
                <optionName overrideUser="[boolean]/optional(false)" accountId="[string]/optional" value="[moduleDefined]/optional()" allAccounts="[boolean]/optional([inherit])">[moduleDefined]/required if no value attibute</optionName>
        <data lines="[interger]/optional(0)" accountId="[string]/required" dataId="[string]/optional(default)" maxLineLength="[interger]/optional([protocolDefined])" lineOverflowHandle="ignore|remove|wrap/optional(remove)" lineOverflowEnd="[string]/optional(...)" wrappedLineStart="[string]/optional(  ...)" removeMultiWhitespace="start|end|startAndEnd|[boolean]/optional(startAndEnd)">
            my server's uptime - @ssh(server,"@uptime()")

    this model includes support for multiple users, alot of advanced config items for handling the output text (such as data item arguments) and work generate errors from users entering bad tcl code syntax like with v0.1.
  • Deamon mode, should allow for easy caching of data, starting and stoping TclSigX like other deamons (/etc/init.d/tclsigx start|restart|stop|force-reload|test|etc)
  • Start on a module system for data items.
  • Multiple protocol support
    I'm planning to make up my own XML (SOAP based) protocol to use instead of SigX's, mainly to collect data from other computers and combine it together in the one SigX signature.
  • v0.3.x will be unstable only releases, a stable version of v0.3 will become v0.4. a stable stable version of v0.1 will become v0.2
  • network configuration protocol
    this will work like DBMSes (eg, postgresql) do. by default you can only configure a tclsigx 0.3 daemon if the "configuration client" is on localhost, but can be changed so you could configure how tclsigx is running on another computer accross a network. this feature will be mainly be used by TkSigX.

I've been kinda caught up in a few other projects *and homework* lately.

I'll see if I can whip up anything to help, though.

TclSigX is t3h BESTEST!

thanks noclue, im going to need more hepl with v0.3 than with v0.1 tho. :-)

I'm also starting to think about focusing on Mac OS X a bit (support iTunes, fix up any general compatabily issues, etc), as development on the existing OS X client has stopped AFAIK, and it isnt open-source.

I also dont want to start developing any TkSigX v0.1 (alpha) releases until TclSigX v0.4, but I'll continue hacking TkSigX v0.0 for TclSigX v0.3 until then.
