I'm looking for a mining client which meets the following criteria:
  • Open source
  • Allows easy integration of new mining methods (FPGA in my case)
  • Runs on Linux, and ideally on Windows as well
  • Written in a sane programming language, preferably Python
  • Supports long polling
  • Supports falling back to another pool in case of outages, without first waiting for the pool to repond for several minutes
  • Pushpool support would be a plus

Which software would you suggest?

If this can't be achieved with a single piece of software, I'd consider a stack of a "dumb" mining software and a clever proxy for it as well.

  • FPGA
  • Python
  • Pushpool support
?!?!?

Sounds a bit like trolling to me...

If you're able to use FPGAs I bet you should be able to use the forum search function as well AND I wonder why you would use Python (or Windows for that matter)?

Jsut get the RPC + LongPolling specs and write the communication part yourself - shouldn't be that hard.

I'd be interested to know of any open source mining software. Primarily to see how they coded it.

I only know of the two open source pool software

Pushpool and poold.py

Most miners I know of are open source:
poclbm, phoenix (with both kernels), puddinpop... there are also open source CPU and even FPGA miners.
