Embedding of scripting into applications
Kross is a scripting bridge to embed scripting functionality into an application. It supports QtScript as a scripting interpreter backend.
The core of Kross provides the framework to deal transparently with interpreter-backends and offers abstract functionality to deal with scripts.
The Kross::Manager class is a singleton that provides the main entry point to deal with the Kross Scripting Framework.
The Kross::Interpreter class is the base for interpreter implementations. Each scripting backend needs to inherit its own interpreter and implement it. The Kross::InterpreterInfo class provides abstract information about a Interpreter before the interpreter-backend itself is loaded.
The Kross::Action class is an abstract container to deal with scripts like a single standalone script file. Each action holds a reference to by the matching Kross::Interpreter created Kross::Script instance.
The Kross::ActionCollectionProxyModel class implements a QSortFilterProxyModel for a Kross::ActionCollectionModel instance which implements QAbstractItemModel to provide a model for views on a Kross::ActionCollection instance.
Kross is able to optional dynamic load modules which provide then additional functionality for scripts.
- Kross::FormModule provides access to UI functionality like dialogs or widgets.
- Kross::TranslationModule provides access to the KDE internationalization and translation facilities.
The Kross console application provides an executable application to run by Kross supported scripts from within the command line:
