    Improve handler interface and documentation

    essen authored
    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 authored
    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.

    Breaking update of the cowboy_req interface

    essen authored
    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.

    Review, improve and document the static files handler

    essen authored
    Changes include:
     *  Much simplified route configuration.
     *  Etag generation is now enabled by default.
     *  Web mimetypes are now detected by default. A bigger list of
        mimetypes can be detected without any additional library.
     *  Mimetypes can no longer be specified as a list. Copying this
        list for new connections is too costy. You can easily convert
        it into a function and pass that function to the handler instead.
     *  You can however specify a single hardcoded mimetype. Mostly
        useful when serving a single file, like an index.html file,
        to avoid extra operations.
     *  Specifying a path as a list of tokens is not possible anymore.
        Use either a binary or a string.
     *  Using a private directory will not work if the application
        was not started properly. Cowboy will not attempt to find
        the location of this directory if the VM doesn't know it,
        as this caused issues in some setups.
     *  Overall the code has been much simplified and clarified,
        and of course has now been documented.
