Subject:Python class for kismet client protocol
Date:03:17:40 01/03/2009

> Hi folks,
> just a quick one; I'm working on a python class to access Kismet through the client/server protocol. It's coming together nicely, although definitely still in alpha stage at the moment. If anyone is interested, let me know here, and I'll get round to posting it somewhere. The eventual aim is a gui client for Nokia Internet Tablets (Maemo), although that's still a fair way off.


I'd suggest checking fields for \001 buffering automatically (the generic parser in newcore does this now) and using the capability protocol to dynamically map the field names, if you're not already.

Should be structured enough to make a python class that handles it well.

The other trick you can steal from newcore is to register callbacks for protocols; Newcore maintains internally a list of fields per callback and aggregates them into one protocol request, then feed just the requested fields to each callback.
