Andrew,

 

I have cced to Charles Eckel who can help.  Charles setup two repos for my open-source code for the hackathon at https://github.com/IETF-Hackathon

 

I do program GoLang, but am buried today and during ensuing weeks with work.  However, once I see the open-source code, I can see what I can contribute during my spare time.

 

Thanks,

 

Hemant

Subject: [Coin] P4 runtime etc.

 

Hi All,

 

So after yesterday’s hackathon session and a brief bit of sleep – I decided to take a look at implementing other code we had using a p4 data plane – now that was interesting – because when I started looking at the p4runtime implementations etc. – as stated, they use grpc – but there is actually a fair bit in there in the python libraries.

 

So – What I’ve started – and am in the very very early stages of doing – is creating a Golang port of the p4 runtime libraries – this will let me handle the Protobufs and GRPC calls correctly from Golang.  As I move on this – I’ll happily opensource this code and share it as it comes – and I’ll request some of my team to get involved in this as well.  

 

If there are any golang coders out there interested in assisting with this project – I’d be happy to discuss.  I’ll also get details this morning about where we can commit code to a public repo so we can check the code in etc as we go in case anyone else has a use case for it

 

Thanks

 

Andrew
