Refactor dispatch

Reported by: percious Owned by: percious
Priority: normal Milestone: 2.1rc1
Component: TurboGears Version: trunk
Severity: normal Keywords: dispatch routes pycon


Dispatch currently resides as a large set of cascaded functions. There is only one method for dispatch and it cannot be overridden by the developer.

I'm proposing that all dispatch method is encapsulated inside ObjectDispatch? and RestDispatch?, allowing developers to create their own custom dispatch. It works like this:

Dispatch begins with the RootController?, which is always Object Dispatch. Then, the dispatch is passed off to each Dispatch object in turn. Dispatch continues down the branches of the URL. At each branch, dispatch will detect if the next object in the chain has it's own dispatcher, and if it does, the method of dispatch continues on with this new method. Along the way, a chain of controller object references is kept in-memory so that any time the dispatch can see how it got where it is.

This will be backwards-compatible, and allow for people to develop their own different kinds of dispatch.

I expect this to be completed during PyCon? 2009.
