Re: [Libevent-users] intercept http accept?

If you provide write-callback on bufferevent_setcb(), I think you should get the callback on accept since the write buffer is empty and lower than the watermark. Is that something changed in libevent v2?

And also, I think you could explicitly call the callback chain on new connection.
Here's a sample code for your idea.

Libasyncd explicitly do this to clearly give the INIT status to user callbacks. So in this case, user callback get 2 calls on accept. One with INIT flag and the other with WRITE flag.

Hope it helps.

If you use libevhtp you can set the following callbacks for pre and post

void evhtp_set_pre_accept_cb(evhtp_t * htp, evhtp_pre_accept_cb cb, void * arg);
void evhtp_set_post_accept_cb(evhtp_t * htp, evhtp_post_accept_cb cb, void * arg);


And I urge others to start testing evhtp2: https://github.com/ellzey/libevhtp/tree/libevhtp2
This is the final step before getting merged into libevent.
