    Add optional callbacks

    essen committed
    Mostly useful for REST, which has a ton. This is an initial
    commit, it still needs to be tested, but it's time to sleep.

    Add rfc7230 test suite and update others to recent Gun

    essen committed
    This is a large commit.
    The rfc7230 test suite adds many tests from the RFC7230 document.
    Gun has been updated quite a bit recently, which broke the Cowboy
    suites. This is now fixed with this commit.
    A new hook onfirstrequest has been added. It was very useful during
    debugging of the test suites.
    The initial process code has changed a little; more changes are
    expected with the switch to maps for options.

    Add a specs document for RFC6585

    essen committed
    Only a few status codes. Comments in the previous commit apply.

    Add an RFC7230 HTTP/1.1 server specification document

    essen committed
    This document lists all rules that Cowboy HTTP server will follow
    after careful analysis of the RFC7230.
    Do note that not all these rules are implemented or tested yet,
    and that at the time of commit there may be rules that Cowboy will
    ultimately not implement (for various reasons including performance
    or leaving certain aspects up to the user code).

    Rename 'halt' to 'stop' for better consistency

    essen committed
    Now everywhere in Cowboy when we want to stop something we return
    a 'stop' tuple instead of one of the many choices depending on
    context that we had before.
    This particular change affects middlewares, sub protocols and
    REST handlers which were using 'halt' to stop processing.
  2. @essen

    Rename 'shutdown' close reason and tuples to 'stop'

    essen committed
    The 'shutdown' atom has a specific meaning inside OTP. We are
    instead going to use 'stop' which is pretty much the equivalent
    of what we actually do. 'shutdown' is now reserved for future
    special processes implementation.

    change init/2 to return #state{} in documentation

    sstrigler committed
    Most examples returned 'Opts' as given by second argument to init. By
    using '#state{}' the examples make it more clear that this is what is
    being passed as 'State' to all subsequent callbacks (if any).

    Remove the REST known_content_type callback

    This callback was simply useless.

    Improve handler interface and documentation

    essen committed
    This change simplifies a little more the sub protocols mechanism.
    Aliases have been removed. The renaming of loop handlers as long
    polling handlers has been reverted.
    Plain HTTP handlers now simply do their work in the init/2
    callback. There is no specific code for them.
    Loop handlers now follow the same return value as Websocket,
    they use ok to continue and shutdown to stop.
    Terminate reasons for all handler types have been documented.
    The terminate callback is now appropriately called in all cases
    (or should be).
    Behaviors for all handler types have been moved in the module
    that implement them. This means that cowboy_handler replaces
    the cowboy_http_handler behavior, and similarly cowboy_loop
    replaces cowboy_loop_handler, cowboy_websocket replaces
    cowboy_websocket_handler. Finally cowboy_rest now has the
    start of a behavior in it and will have the full list of
    optional callbacks defined once Erlang 18.0 gets released.
    The guide has been reorganized and should be easier to follow.

    Unify the init and terminate callbacks

    essen committed
    This set of changes is the first step to simplify the
    writing of handlers, by removing some extraneous
    callbacks and making others optional.
    init/3 is now init/2, its first argument being removed.
    rest_init/2 and rest_terminate/2 have been removed.
    websocket_init/3 and websocket_terminate/3 have been removed.
    terminate/3 is now optional. It is called regardless of
    the type of handler, including rest and websocket.
    The return value of init/2 changed. It now returns
    {Mod, Req, Opts} with Mod being either one of the four
    handler type or a custom module. It can also return extra
    timeout and hibernate options.
    The signature for sub protocols has changed, they now
    receive these extra timeout and hibernate options.
    Loop handlers are now implemented in cowboy_long_polling,
    and will be renamed throughout the project in a future commit.

    Remove the error tuple return value for middlewares

    essen committed
    It wasn't interesting compared to simply returning a halt tuple
    with an explicit reply.
  2. @essen

    Remove the onrequest hook

    essen committed
    It was redundant with middlewares. Allows us to save a few operations
    for every incoming requests.

    Make routing constraints use the fields format

    essen committed
    This makes routing more in line with the rest of Cowboy and
    allows us to use cowboy_constraints directly.
  2. @essen

    Breaking update of the cowboy_req interface

    essen committed
    Simplify the interface for most cowboy_req functions. They all return
    a single value except the four body reading functions. The reply functions
    now only return a Req value.
    Access functions do not return a Req anymore.
    Functions that used to cache results do not have a cache anymore.
    The interface for accessing query string and cookies has therefore
    been changed.
    There are now three query string functions: qs/1 provides access
    to the raw query string value; parse_qs/1 returns the query string
    as a list of key/values; match_qs/2 returns a map containing the
    values requested in the second argument, after applying constraints
    and default value.
    Similarly, there are two cookie functions: parse_cookies/1 and
    match_cookies/2. More match functions will be added in future commits.
    None of the functions return an error tuple anymore. It either works
    or crashes. Cowboy will attempt to provide an appropriate status code
    in the response of crashed handlers.
    As a result, the content decode function has its return value changed
    to a simple binary, and the body reading functions only return on success.
