Bugfix/zero response #1082

veryrusty commented Dec 28, 2015

The change to allow before_serializer hooks in commit 5697359 introduced a side effect for any code "getting" the response content. This reverts the changes to the around content modifier made in that commit, resolving #1079 (while keeping @ambs test from #1080).

However this undoes desired functionality from #1053 for a before_serializer being able to change the response content in the case when no route returns content for the response. To trigger the serializer hooks in this case, set the response content attribute to the default (an empty string) when constructing the PSGI response (rather than inject the empty string in the PSGI response as done previously).

( I'm keeping @mickeyn to his word for removing that around modifier )

Fix resposne->content around modifier
Changes in commit 5697359 broke the around modifier when used as a
getter. Rather than revert, this commit cleans up the logical cases the
modifier has to deal with:

  * If called as a "getter", the modifier is only passed two params.
    Check for that case and return the result of the original method.

  * If there is no serializer defined, encode the content and call the
    original method.

  * Otherwise serialize any content, then call the original method.

Also reverts the changes to the before_serializer counts in t/hooks.t
from the same commit.
Test serializer hooks when route return no content
Adds a test for an app with a serializer defined that has routes that
  * return no conent ( /nothing )
  * return content to be serialized (all the others)
verifying that the before_serializer hook can change the response content
in both cases. See #1053.
Set default response content so hooks get called
If a serializer is defined, before_serializer hooks may change the
response content, including the "default" of an empty string if no route
returned any content for the request.

Set the content to the empty string if the response has no defined
content allowing any hooks to betriggered before constructing the
PSGI response.

👍 by me. Probably @mickeyn and @xsawyerx should comment on this.

Also, sorry for pushing, but it would be great if you could include this patch before the next release.

Happy New Year.
