package driver

import "gocloud.dev/runtimevar/driver"

Package driver defines interfaces to be implemented by runtimevar drivers, which will be used by the runtimevar package to interact with the underlying services. Application code should use package runtimevar.

const DefaultWaitDuration = 30 * time.Second

DefaultWaitDuration is the default value for WaitDuration.

func WaitDuration Uses

func WaitDuration(d time.Duration) time.Duration

WaitDuration returns DefaultWaitDuration if d is <= 0, otherwise it returns d.

type State Uses

type State interface {
    // Value returns the current variable value.
    Value() (interface{}, error)
    // UpdateTime returns the update time for the variable.
    UpdateTime() time.Time

    // As converts i to driver-specific types.
    // See https://gocloud.dev/concepts/as/ for background information.
    As(interface{}) bool

State represents the current state of a variable.

type Watcher Uses

type Watcher interface {
    // WatchVariable returns the current State of the variable.
    // If the State has not changed, it returns nil.
    // If WatchVariable returns a wait time > 0, the portable type uses
    // it as a hint to not call WatchVariable again for the wait time.
    // Implementations *may* block, but must return if ctx is Done. If the
    // variable has changed, then implementations *must* eventually return
    // it.
    // A polling implementation should return (State, <poll interval>) for
    // a new State, or (nil, <poll interval>) if State hasn't changed.
    // An implementation that receives notifications from an external source
    // about changes to the underlying variable should:
    // 1. If prev != nil, subscribe to change notifications.
    // 2. Fetch the current State.
    // 3. If prev == nil or if the State has changed, return (State, 0).
    //    A non-zero wait should be returned if State holds an error, to avoid
    //    spinning.
    // 4. Block until it detects a change or ctx is Done, then fetch and return
    //    (State, 0).
    // Note that the subscription in 1 must occur before 2 to avoid race conditions.
    WatchVariable(ctx context.Context, prev State) (state State, wait time.Duration)

    // Close cleans up any resources used by the Watcher object.
    Close() error

    // ErrorAs allows drivers to expose driver-specific types for returned
    // errors; see State.As for more details.
    ErrorAs(error, interface{}) bool

    // ErrorCode should return a code that describes the error, which was returned by
    // one of the other methods in this interface.
    ErrorCode(error) gcerrors.ErrorCode

Watcher watches for updates on a variable and returns an updated Variable object if there are changes. A Watcher object is associated with a variable upon construction.

An application can have more than one Watcher, one for each variable. It is typical to only have one Watcher per variable.

Many services store their configuration data as raw bytes; drivers for such services should include a runtimevar.Decoder in their constructor to allow users to decode the raw bytes into a particular format (e.g., parsing a JSON string).

Drivers for services that don't have raw bytes may dictate the type of the exposed Snapshot.Value, or expose custom decoding logic.
