Generating the client stub

Within DASF we provide the possibility to automatically generate the client stub from the server stub (see Remote Procedure Calls if you want to know more about these terms). This is done in the generate() method of the BackendModule class and can also be invoked from the command line, e.g.

python generate

The generation of these files work via so-called jinja2 templates[1]. Each config class, i.e. FunctionConfig, ClassConfig and ModuleConfig holds the reference to a Template. This template is used to render the corresponding function, class or module in the client stub. You can find these templates in the demessaging/templates folder of the source code.


currently we only support the automatic creation of python client stubs. But we aim for the support of typescript in the near future.
