The old interface with ok|reply|stop tuples is deprecated.
2017-02-18Allow passing options to sub protocolsLoïc Hoguin
Before this commit we had an issue where configuring a Websocket connection was simply not possible without doing magic, adding callbacks or extra return values. The init/2 function only allowed setting hibernate and timeout options. After this commit, when switching to a different type of handler you can either return {module, Req, State} or {module, Req, State, Opts} where Opts is any value (as far as the sub protocol interface is concerned) and is ultimately checked by the custom handlers. A large protocol like Websocket would accept only a map there, with many different options, while a small interface like loop handlers would allow passing hibernate and nothing else. For Websocket, hibernate must be set from the websocket_init/1 callback, because init/2 executes in a separate process. Sub protocols now have two callbacks: one with the Opts value, one without. The loop handler code was largely reworked and simplified. It does not need to manage a timeout or read from the socket anymore, it's the job of the protocol code. A lot of unnecessary stuff was therefore removed. Websocket compression must now be enabled from the handler options instead of per listener. This means that a project can have two separate Websocket handlers with different options. Compression is still disabled by default, and the idle_timeout value was changed from inifnity to 60000 (60 seconds), as that's safer and is also a good value for mobile devices.
