README.md

mastodon-cpp is a C++ wrapper for the Mastodon API. The library takes care of the network stuff. You submit a query and get the raw JSON. You can then put that JSON into easy to use classes.

TODO-list

The ABI will be unstable in versions < 1.0.0

Beginning with 0.30.0, all IDs are const string instead of uint_fast64_t as required by the Mastodon API. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Breaking API changes

I’m going to rewrite key parts of this library. The new API will be incompatible with the old one. The new code will start with the version number 0.100.0. The old code is archived in the branch pre-0.100.0 and will get bugfixes for a while.

The code on the master-branch is not usable at the moment, stick to the releases, please.

Usage

The HTML reference can be generated with build_doc.sh, if doxygen is installed. It is also available at doc.schlomp.space/mastodon-cpp/. There are examples in examples/.

Most basic example

#include <iostream>
#include <mastodon-cpp/mastodon-cpp.hpp>

int main()
{
    Mastodon::API masto("social.example.com", "auth_token");
    std::cout << masto.get(Mastodon::API::v1::accounts_verify_credentials);
    std::cout << std::endl;
}

Another simple example

Using the Easy-class.

#include <iostream>
#include <string>
#include <mastodon-cpp/mastodon-cpp.hpp>
#include <mastodon-cpp/easy/all.hpp>

using Mastodon::Easy;

int main()
{
    Easy masto("social.example", "");
    return_call ret = masto.get(Mastodon::API::v1::timelines_public);

    for (const std::string &str : Easy::json_array_to_vector(ret.answer))
    {
        Easy::Status status(str);
        std::cout << "  " << status.account().acct() << " wrote:\n";
        std::cout << status.content() << '\n';
    }
}

Compiling your project

A project consisting of one file can be compiled as follows:

g++ -std=c++14 -lmastodon-cpp example.cpp

Install

Packages

Every release includes packages for the package managers of Debian and Red Hat. Gentoo packages are available in an overlay.

Gentoo

Add my repository and install it from there.

eselect repository enable tastytea
echo 'dev-cpp/mastodon-cpp ~amd64' >> /etc/portage/package.keywords/mastodon-cpp
emaint sync -r tastytea
emerge -a dev-cpp/mastodon-cpp

DEB and RPM

Prebuilt DEB and RPM packages for x86_64(amd64) are provided with each release. These packages are automatically built and not tested. Install with dpkg -i or rpm -i, respectively.

To use the DEB package on stretch, you will need libcurlpp0 from sid.

Release

Download the current release at schlomp.space.

Development version

git clone https://schlomp.space/tastytea/mastodon-cpp.git

Compile

mkdir build
cd build/
cmake ..
make

cmake options:

  • -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug for a debug build
  • -DWITHOUT_EASY=ON to not build the Easy abstractions and to get rid of the jsoncpp-dependency (not recommended)
  • -DWITH_EXAMPLES=ON if you want to compile the examples
  • -DWITH_TESTS=ON if you want to compile the tests
  • -DWITH_DOC=ON if you want to compile the HTML reference
  • One of:
    • -DWITH_DEB=ON if you want to be able to generate a deb-package
    • -DWITH_RPM=ON if you want to be able to generate an rpm-package

You can run the tests with ctest .. inside the build directory. To install, run make install.

Packages

DEB and RPM

Compile with -DWITH_DEB=ON or -DWITH_RPM=ON. Run make package from the build directory to generate a DEB/RPM package.

Other

Run make package from the build directory to generate a tar.gz archive.
