bot: modularize HTTP server #1149

Hi all,

please review this patch that modularizes the bot HTTP server. The HTTP server featured by the bot runner is currently only used to process webhooks, but I have coming patches that extends it with other functionality. This refactoring make the bot runner start the actual server and then handlers can be configured in a configuration file. A minimal configuration file looks like:

    "scratch": {
        "path": "/tmp/skara/scratch"
    "storage": {
        "path": "/tmp/skara/storage"
    "runner": {
        "interval": "PT10S",
        "watchdog": "PT30M",
        "concurrency": 2
    "log": {
        "console": {
            "level": "FINER"
    "http-server": {
        "port": 8080,
        "/api": {
            "type": "webhook"

Using the above configuration stored in config.json the bot runner can then be started as:

$ make bots
$ ./bots/bin/bin/skara-bots $PWD/config.json

The HTTP server can be then be queried using e.g. curl:

$ curl --verbose --request POST --data '{"foo": "bar"}'  http://localhost:8080/api
Note: Unnecessary use of -X or --request, POST is already inferred.

* Connection #0 to host localhost left intact

I also updated the webhook handler to return 404 if the supplied data cannot be parsed as valid JSON.
