Mojo Public API

The Mojo Public API is a binary stable API to the Mojo system. There are several components to the API:

Bindings

This directory contains a static library that clients can link into their binary. The contents of this directory are not binary stable because each client is free to use whichever version they prefer.

This directory also contains a compiler that translates mojom interface definition files into idiomatic bindings for various languages, including C++ and JavaScript. Clients are expected to statically link with the generated code, which reads and writes the binary stable IPC message format.

GLES2

The IPC protocol used to communicate between Mojo client and the GLES2 service is not binary stable. To insulate themselves from changes in this protocol, clients are expected to link dynamically against the standard GLES2 headers from Khronos and the headers in this directory, which provide an adaptor between the GLES2 C API and the underlying IPC protocol.

System

This directory defines the interface between Mojo clients and the Mojo IPC system. Although the Mojo IPC message format is binary stable, the mechanism by which these messages are transported is not stable. To insulate themselves from changes in the underlying transport, clients are expected to link against these headers dynamically.

Tests

This directory contains tests for code contained in the public API. Mojo clients are expected to ignore this directory.
