1# Netlink library for VPP plugins
3This VPP package provides a rtnetlink-based library to be used by [VPP](http://fd.io/) plugins and other extensions.
7The library and test plugin can be compiled by running the following commands from the plugin directory:
15sudo make install
18If VPP is not installed, but rather built in a separate directory, you can use the VPP_DIR 'configure' argument.
26You can also enable debug with the 'configure' --enable-debug option.
32### Current status
34This library is currently looking for some maintainers.
38This effort intends to be a building block for a better integration of VPP into Linux.
39It will evolve depending on the needs of the VPP community while focusing on the relations between VPP plugins and the Linux networking stack.
