Porting an existing module that uses the old interface
In order to port a module that uses Synapse's old module interface, its author needs to:
- ensure the module's callbacks are all asynchronous.
- register their callbacks using one or more of the
register_[...]_callbacksmethods from the
ModuleApiclass in the module's
__init__method (see this section for more info).
Additionally, if the module is packaged with an additional web resource, the module
should register this resource in its
__init__ method using the
method from the
ModuleApi class (see this section for
There is no longer a
get_db_schema_files callback provided for password auth provider modules. Any
changes to the database should now be made by the module using the module API class.
The module's author should also update any example in the module's configuration to only
use the new
modules section in Synapse's configuration file (see this section
for more info).
