[Freeswitch-users] Delivering configuration using python.

Hello All,

Apologies if this appears to be a duplicate, I don't think my first 
message made it to the list.

Can anyone clarify the process of delivering FreeSWITCH configuration 
using mod_python3?

In autoload_configs/python.conf.xml I have:

<configuration name="python.conf" description="PYTHON Configuration">
     <param name="xml-handler-script" value="ahf1"/>
     <param name="xml-handler-bindings" 

But although the script ahf1.py gets called several times on FreeSWITCH 
start up and on fs_cli reloadxml the script appears to have no way of 
knowing what configuration is being asked for.

If I look at the freeswitch  /src/mod/languages directory on github in 
mod_lua.cpp I can see that variables are set for "section, "tag_name", 
"key_name", and "key_value", and a global: XML_REQUEST is set.  But in 
mod_python.c these variables do not seem to be made available to the 
python script, there is just a freeswitch Event that is NULL most of the 

So at the moment it seems impossible to deliver more that one binding in 
a python script?  Can anyone advise?

In ahf1.py I have:

# default name for binding to an XML lookup is "xml_fetch" it can be 
overridden with <modname>::<function>
# params a switch_event with all the relevant data about what is being 
searched for in the XML registry.
def xml_fetch(*args):

     xml = '''
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
<document type="freeswitch/xml">
   <section name="result">
     <result status="not found" />

     consoleLog("info", 'ahf: ' + str(args) + '\n')

     if isinstance(args[0], Event):
         consoleLog("info", 'ahf: Got an fs event\n')
         consoleLog("info", 'ahfp1: ' + str(args[0].serialize()) + '\n')

     return xml

Many thanks and kind regards,

Adrian Fretwell
