[erlang-questions] Specs for optional callbacks (try 2)
Wed Sep 24 18:52:27 CEST 2014
I didn't get any reply on my previous question almost 2 years ago here:
So let me ask again, is there any plans for adding something like
-optional_callback that would do the same as -callback except it would
not require the callback to be defined? Basically Dialyzer would use it,
and the compiler wouldn't fail if the callback is missing.
As it stands now I am about to remove most -behavior in Cowboy because
they're starting to make little sense because most callbacks become
optional. The simplest handler type will have 3 possible callbacks, 2
being optional. The most complex handler type already has 20+ callbacks
with only 1 required.
Thanks for any reply.
