The formal review of the Synapse library by Emil Dotchevski starts
tomorrow, December 2 and is scheduled to continue through December 11. I
will be making an official announcement tomorrow, but I want to give
the following information today for anyone wishing to acquaint
themselves with the library.
As explained previously by Emil Dotchevski when requesting that Synapse
be put on the Boost Review list, Synapse is a signal programming
library, similar to Boost Signals2 and the signals-slots system in Qt.
The main difference is that Synapse is non-intrusive: the address of any
object of any static type whatsoever can be passed to synapse::emit to
emit a signal. This makes it possible to emit Synapse signals from
objects of third-party types as well as system objects (e.g. standard
FILE pointers, HWNDs, etc.) or any other object that can be converted to
The library has been formatted to fit the Boost directory and namespace
structure. To get Synapse, clone
'https://github.com/zajo/boost-synapse.git' into a directory called
'synapse' under your boost/libs directory.
See the tutorial at http://zajo.github.io/boost-synapse/Tutorial.html,
or read full documentation at
The documentaion can also be viewed from the local clone at
I would urge anyone who may be interested in signal/slot processing in
C++ to take a good look at the Synapse library.
