Re: [Vala] GIO, GVfs, custom isolated URI handler

Hi Aleksandr,

Maybe what you're looking for is PhysicsFS: https://icculus.org/physfs/

I'm not sure if there is a Vala binding already, but creating one would be fairly trivial.

I don't believe PhysicsFS will do the priority search for you, but it wouldn't require much code to implement that.

Given what you've stated as your goal I don't think any bicycles need to be reinvented :-)


Quoting Aleksandr Palamar <void995@xxxxxxxxx>:

Hi, everyone.

I'm kind of new to GLib in general, but already have some basic
understanding of how it works. I'm planning to make a game using Vala
(which means GLib, GObject and GIO). One of the first things is to make
isolated VFS with different mount points on file system, each of has it's
own priority while looking for an existing file. I saw that GIO has
something for mounting and it's own GVfs, so may I extend/set up them in
some way to achieve my goal or that is totally another opera and I would
have to reinvent my own bicycle?

For example, while asking for file by URI resource://textures/blank.ktx it
will try to search for (sorted by priority):
