Abstract

This artifact contains a version of the Scribble tool that, given a protocol specification with multiple participants, can generate Scala APIs for implementing each participant in a type-safe, protocol-abiding way. Crucially, the API generation leverages a decomposition of the multiparty protocol into type-safe peer-to-peer interactions between pairs of participants; and this, in turn, allows to implement the API internals on top of the existing lchannels library for type-safe binary session programming. As a result, several technically challenging aspects in the implementation of multiparty sessions are solved "for free", at the underlying binary level. This includes distributed multiparty session delegation: this artifact implements it for the first time.
