NAME

Mojolicious::Plugin::OnFork - Do Something Whenever a Worker Starts

VERSION

Version 0.003

SYNOPSIS

  # Mojolicious
  $self->plugin('OnFork' => sub { srand })
    if $ENV{HYPNOTOAD_APP};

  # Mojolicious::Lite
  plugin OnFork => sub { srand }
    if $ENV{HYPNOTOAD_APP};

DESCRIPTION

Mojolicious::Plugin::OnFork is a plugin to easily define code, that is executed whenever a new worker process of the web server forks.

All this plugin actually does is

  Mojo::IOLoop->timer(0 => $code)

The motivation for this plugin was, that hypnotoad does not guarantee to call "srand" in perlfunc after a "fork" in perlfunc, so worker processes might all get the same sequence of "random" numbers from "rand" in perlfunc.

Starting with Mojolicious 5.76 srand is actually called after a fork, but this fact is not officially documented and according to the author can be removed in the future without any previous notice.

As a consequence depending on the Mojolicious version and for this use case srand might be called twice after a worker starts.

METHODS

Mojolicious::Plugin::OnFork inherits all methods from Mojolicious::Plugin and implements the following new ones.

register

Register plugin hooks in Mojolicious application.
