Ada-TOML: a TOML Parser for Ada

AW1.125
Pierre-Marie de Rodat
The world of generic structured data formats is full of contenders: the mighty XML, the swift JSON, the awesome YAML, ... Alas, there is no silver bullet: XML is very verbose, JSON is not convenient for humans to write, YAML is known to be hard to parse, and so on. TOML is yet another format whose goal is to be a good configuration language: obvious semantics, convenient to write and easy to parse in general-purpose programming languages. In this talk, I'll shortly describe the TOML format and show a few use cases in the real world. I'll then present the ada-toml library itself: its high-level architecture and examples.

In the Ada world, we are surrounded by impressive and professional tools that can handle large and complex projects. Did you ever dream of a tiny, incomplete but compatible system to play with? Are you too impatient, when developing small pieces of code, for long compile-bind-link-run cycles? Are you a beginner intimidated by project files and sophisticated tools? Then HAC (the HAC Ada Compiler, or the Hello-world Ada Compiler) is for you.

Last year I presented Cappulada, a C binding generator for Ada that intended to overcome the shortcomings of existing solutions and to provide usable bindings even for complex C code. This year I want to show our conclusions on why automatic bindings between C and Ada are hard (if not impossible) and where existing solutions (including our own) fail.

The Robot Operating System (ROS) is one of the chief frameworks for service robotics research and development. The next iteration of this framework, ROS2, aims to improve critical shortcomings of its predecessor like deterministic memory allocation and real-time characteristics. RCLAda is a binding to the ROS2 framework that enables the programming of ROS2 nodes in pure Ada with seamless integration into the ROS2 workflow.

Ada incorporates in its standard a model for distributed execution. It is an abstract model that does not depend on a particular kind of network or any other communication mean, and that preserves full typing control across partitions. This presentation briefly exposes the principles of Ada's distribution model, then shows the possibilities with life demos across different machines and operating systems.
