jblink, an open source Java implementation created by Pantor Engineering, can be found at GitHub. Fork me on GitHub


blinkc is a tool that generates source code interfaces from blink schemas. The tool is modular and will eventually support multiple output formats. Currently only Java is supported. The tool is itself open source and is written in node.js. It is distributed through GitHub.

The Blink Tools Package

The Blink tools package includes tools for

  • validating and translating Blink schemas,
  • dumping encoded data in annotated hex format,
  • and translating between the binary and tag formats in both directions.

The tools are released as binary executables for Linux, Windows and Solaris:
