http-parser is [not actively maintained] New projects and projects looking to migrate should consider [llhttp] This is a parser for HTTP messages written in C. It parses both requests and responses. The parser is designed to be used in performance HTTP applications. It does not make any syscalls nor allocations, it does not buffer data, it can be interrupted at anytime. Depending on your architecture, it only requires about 40 bytes of data per message stream (in a web server that is per connection).

            I'm unsure as to the cause of that log message, but I do see that you are returning a response from your function before it completes all of its work. In a deployed function, as soon as the function returns, all further actions should be treated as if they will never be executed as documented here. An "inactive" function might be terminated at any time, is severely throttled and any network calls you make (like setting data in the RTDB) may never be executed.

            I know you are new to this, but its a good habit to get into now: don't assume the person calling your function is you. Check for problems like missing query parameters and dodgy data before you blindly action something. The Admin SDK bypasses your database's security rules and if you are not careful a malicious user can cause some damage (e.g. a user that updates /users/$theirUid/roles/admin to true).



            Cross-language HTTP parser?
            Asked 2021-Aug-22 at 16:16

            I have met with a rather strange observation.

            HTTP is a protocol used the most in this world. Don't know the stats, but surely it takes up at least 90% of the whole traffic on the internet.

            Every major language has a library for creating a web-server and consuming traffic with a web-client. And practically every major language is a decendant of C and/or has C bindings.

            But it seems like even though the both ends meet to naturally form the basis of the internet, there is no unified, widely used implementation of the HTTP parser in C.

            There is http_parser by Ryan Dahl, there is its decendant llhttp by Fedor Indutny (both used in Node.js), and, I suppose, every framework implements its own parser for its needs.

            Why, though?

            I'm mostly worried about compatibility issues, about library support. For example, HTTP/3 rolls out and the library I used in my project doesn't support it, or Node.js is deprecated and no support again. Of course, the arguments sound silly, but look at it this way: why does everyone implement their own parser, if the HTTP protocol specification is clear AND at the end of the day practically every language out there has C bindings? Wouldn't it be better for everyone to agree on one code base and use it in every language? There is just nothing to compete about. It's a protocol, it is to be the same for everyone.

            The question is that: Is there a cross-language solution, used by most of the servers, http clients? If there isn't, why?

            Several reasons:

            • C is a product of the early 1970s, when systems tended to be monolithic and network-centric architectures were somewhat rare. It was created primarily to implement the Unix operating system. And it has precious little language-level support for much of anything - no native networking, graphics, sound, or much else. That’s why it’s as portable as it is - the language definition makes relatively few demands of the underlying platform. The group that maintains the C standard tends to be conservative about adding features.

            • HTTP is one protocol of many - telnet, SMTP, NNTP, FTP, SSH, etc., all of which are or have been as widely used as HTTP at some point. 30 years ago a good case could have been made for making telnet or FTP support native (which would have required a native TCP/IP stack as well). Now it’s HTTP and HTTPS, which would require a native SSL implementation.

            Paradigms (and protocols) come and go, but legacy code is forever. Making protocols part of the language makes the language bigger and harder to maintain. New protocols get created, old protocols fall out of favor or are deprecated, leading to more maintenance issues. Each time a protocol is updated you’d need a compiler update (or at least a standard library update).

            Life is just easier if all of that is kept separate from the language itself.

            As for why there are so many different implementations...

            • Different platforms have different APIs - at some point you have to have a system-specific implementation;

            • Different people have different requirements for usability, capability, scalability, and security. A lightweight implementation that may work just fine for individual use may fall down under load;

            • Somebody may just not be aware of an existing implementation and rolls their own;

            • And, finally, there’s no referee; standards exist, and groups that maintain and enforce those standards exist, but there’s no one who officially blesses a particular implementation.



            Problem installing nodejs version >= 10 on Linux Mint 19.3, which stubbornly installs nodejs 8.10
            Asked 2021-May-20 at 01:51

            Trying to use to install nodejs in version higher than 10 ( and then npm) on Linux Mint 19.3. It stubbornly installs the 8.10 version.

            Tried fixing it with tip from but 1) "check_alt "Linux Mint" "tricia" "Ubuntu" "bionic" is already in the script 2) the result is the same.

            Attempted to use sudo apt-get install as well as wget, which failed just like my last attempt, using the installation script downloaded:

            Cypress never get past loading screen on Ubuntu
            Asked 2020-Apr-21 at 13:23

            I have created a new React project using
            npx create-react-app virtual-office

            I then installed a few things like styled-components, react-test-library etc

            I then installed cypress with
            yarn add -D cypress

            When I try running cypress from the project directory with the command
            ./node_modules/.bin/cypress open

            The cypress window opens but the spinner stays up and doesn't load any further. Running cypress with the debugger turned on it looks like it can find the browser (see the end of the question for the output of the debugger). If I run cypress with the following command I get the same error
            yarn run cypress open -b /usr/local/bin/chromium

            I can open the Chromium browser with the command
            The version of Chromium is 81.0.4044.92

            The command ls -la /usr/local/bin/c* gives the result
            lrwxrwxrwx 2 root root 13 Apr 16 10:45 /usr/local/bin/chromium -> /usr/bin/snap

            I have also run the commands



            Answered 2020-Apr-17 at 11:30

            This is an issue with Cypress on Ubuntu when Chromium is installed via snap as documented here:

            There will be a release of Cypress in the future to address the issue, so watch the GitHub issue for any updates.


            Install Chromium via apt instead (apt install chromium-browser)
