Detailed Description

the PipeWire context

The context object manages all locally available resources. It is used by both clients and servers.

The context is used to:

  • Load modules and extend the functionality. This includes extending the protocol with new object types or creating any of the available objects.
  • Create implementations of various objects like nodes, devices, factories, modules, etc.. This will usually also create pw_global objects that can then be shared with clients.
  • Connect to another PipeWire instance (the main daemon, for example) and interact with it (See page_core_api).
  • Export a local implementation of an object to another instance.
