Module @ndn/repo-external


This package is part of NDNts, Named Data Networking libraries for the modern web.

This package allows inserting and deleting Data in ndn-python-repo. PyRepoClient type is a client for ndn-python-repo protocol. PyRepoStore type implements a subset of DataStore interfaces defined in @ndn/repo-api package.

This implementation is compatible with ndn-python-repo version 0.2a5. Newer versions of ndn-python-repo are not supported due to ndn-python-repo issue #60. To install the specified version, run:

pip install ndn-python-repo==0.2a5 python-ndn==0.2b2.post1

As tested on 2023-02-16, this version of ndn-python-repo is no longer compatible with the latest NFD and NDNts. This is caused by changes in Interest ForwardingHint encoding.
