as i said earlier i havent gotten my hands dirty yet and havent even registered for a skypekit yet so i haven't got a really clear image of the possibilities of a the provided daemon.AcerExtensa wrote: SkypeKit is actually a daemon and you can code your client in many languages... Building daemon for daemon will be just waste of RPi resources and how do you imagine support for many languages? Plugin system with language interpreters for RPi? I don't think this will work well and smooth enough... And what about Video Calls? How do you imagine transition of video streams to plugins?
I though mainly about full command line control so simple bash command can control the entire program. commands which are later easy to "simulate " in a gui layer.
$ skype answer <contactname> <video:false>
$ skype call <contactname> <video:true>
$ skype listcontacts
another option i could see happening is to literaly copy the way MPD works.
accepting a set of commandos on a certain port (if i recall correctly in case of MPD thats 6600)
$ echo answer_contactname_false | nc localhost 1234
$ echo call_contactname_true | nc localhost 1234
$ echo listcontacts | nc localhost 1234
i think at least having command line control in one way or the other would make things a lot more flexible to adapt to different platforms and userneeds.
