April 2024 - This site, and Kamaelia are being updated. There is significant work needed, and PRs are welcome.


For examples and more explanations, see the module level docs.

class HTTPRequestHandler(Axon.Component.component)

HTTPRequestHandler() -> new HTTPRequestHandler component capable of fulfilling the requests received over a single connection after they have been parsed by HTTPParser



Methods defined here


You should be using the inbox/outbox interface, not these methods (except construction). This documentation is designed as a roadmap as to their functionalilty for maintainers and new component developers.

Called when a chunk-encoded response ends


Called when a connection: close terminated response ends


Called when a response that had a content-length header ends

checkRequestValidity(self, request)


Link to the resource handler we've created so we can receive its output

createHandler(self, request)

debug(self, msg)

determineConnectionType(self, request)


Disconnect the now finished resource handler

formResponseHeader(self, resource, protocolversion[, lengthMethod])


handleRequest(self, request)

Got a problem with the documentation? Something unclear that could be clearer? Want to help improve it? Constructive criticism is very welcome - especially if you can suggest a better rewording!

Please leave you feedback here in reply to the documentation thread in the Kamaelia blog.
