Small SOAP wrapper to use Perl

[ #2927 ]

Making use of use Perl's new cool SOAP features, I've created a small, simple, and thin wrapper around them, if only to remember the interface. It has its quirks and limitations, but it works.

This is the first step in an attempt to create a WxPerl journal editor, when/if I get the time. You can grab it from

  • This will be broken sometime in the near future. The interface is not set, which is why I haven't announced it.
    • I thought as much, but as far as I'm concerned I don't mind much. Developping the UI will take time, something which I don't have plenty of these days. And the wrapper is simple enough that it can probably be rewritten in a few minutes now and then :)

      One thing that I found missing in the interface is nick2uid mapping and/or the ability to use a nick instead of a uid when fetching entries. Apart from that, it's really cool.

        The good thing about SOAP is that you point at a dummy proxy/endpoint while testing. And it's easy to do. So that should let you debug the wxPerly bits with the current interface in a stable state, and then debug the new interface when Pudge makes it public.

        Just $0.02. :-)

        I don't know if I'll support that or not. Probably not now, just because it might part of a larger SOAP interface for Slash, and I don't want to add it only to remove it later. It would belong in some Users package, not in Journal. And it's easy to look up user IDs manually. ;-)

        Another thing might be an eventual Zoo interface (that which supplies the friends/foes stuff), to let you see who your friends/foes/etc. are, and maybe add and remove friends/foes. And this is why I don't want to move ahead too
