Octocat-spinner-32 vmod-curl.spec
This vmod provides cURL bindings for Varnish so you can use Varnish
as an HTTP client and fetch headers and bodies from backends.


VARNISHSRC is the directory of the Varnish source tree for which to
compile your vmod. Both the VARNISHSRC and VARNISHSRC/include
will be added to the include search paths for your module.

Optionally you can also set the vmod install directory by adding
VMODDIR=DIR (defaults to the pkg-config discovered directory from your
Varnish installation).

Make targets:
make - builds the vmod
make install - installs your vmod in VMODDIR
make check - runs the unit tests in src/tests/*.vtc

To use the vmod do something along the lines of:

import curl;

sub vcl_recv {
    if (curl.header("X-Foo") == "bar") {

See src/vmod_curl.vcc for the rest of the callable functions.

Development of this VMOD has been sponsored by the Norwegian company
Aspiro Music AS for usage on their WiMP music streaming service.
