module Athena::Routing::Arguments::Resolvers::ArgumentValueResolverInterface

Argument value resolvers handle resolving the arguments for a controller action from a request, or other source.

Custom resolvers can be defined by creating a service that implements this interface, and is tagged with ART::Arguments::Resolvers::TAG, optionally with a priority to determine the order in which the resolvers are executed.

@[ADI::Register(tags: [{name: ART::Arguments::Resolvers::TAG, priority: 10}])]
struct CustomResolver
  include Athena::Routing::Arguments::Resolvers::ArgumentValueResolverInterface

  # :inherit:
  def supports?(request : HTTP::Request, argument : ART::Arguments::ArgumentMetadata) : Bool
    # Define the logic that determines if `self` is able to resolve a value for the given request/argument.
    # This resolver would handle resolving a value for action arguments whose type is `MyCustomType`.
    argument.type == MyCustomType

  # :inherit:
  def resolve(request : HTTP::Request, argument : ART::Arguments::ArgumentMetadata)
    # Return the resolved value.  It could either come from the request itself, an injected service, or hardcoded.
    # `#resolve` is only executed if `#supports?` returns `true`. "foo"
