Boomcatch provides four extension points, which are invoked as a pipeline when a beacon request is received. Those extension points, in order of invocation, are:
Validators: These functions are predicates, which can check that the request meets your specific requirements, then signal whether to continue processing or fail the request.
Filters: These functions filter out unwanted parts of the data before it is passed to the mapper.
Mappers: These functions transform the data into a format suitable for consumption by some other process.
Forwarders: These functions conclude processing by sending the mapped data onto another process.
In each case,
extensions are loaded with
employing a two-pass approach
to enable loading of custom extensions.
The first attempt is made
with the relevant extension directory
prefixed to the module path.
If that attempt throws,
a second attempt is made
using the specified module path verbatim.
will be loaded on the first attempt
and custom extensions
will be loaded on the second.
