[erlang-questions] Nitrogen on several ports
Wed Mar 14 20:46:54 CET 2012
Thank you! That sounds like just what I need. I didn't realise wf:socket()
would tell me the socket type--very useful!
I am actually using Apache as a reverse proxy to forward port 80 to 8000
already... my problem is I want to access the *same page* (i.e. same .erl
file) through http and https, and see different options in each case. I
suppose I could make two different pages, but that would be more complex and
less maintainable however I did it (code duplication or a more complex
module structure). I'm not sure nginx would really solve that problem for

You can get the socket from Nitrogen and from the socket determine its type:
In code that could be something like
Socket = wf:socket(),
is_tuple(Socket) andalso element(1,Socket)=:=sslsocket.
Though I personally prefer to throw nginx in front of Nitrogen deal
with that kind of routing (URL-based, anyway).
