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 a pointer.
The library has been formatted to fit the Boost directory and
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 http://zajo.github.io/boost-synapse/index.html
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.
