ResponseWriterState nil in goroutine

(jonas) #1

Hello everyone,

First, I’m new to go and so this might be a rookie mistake.
What I’m trying to do is the following:

  1. Receive request
  2. Start loading multiple files
  3. After the first file is loaded, return it as a HTTP response.
  4. Use HTTP2 push to push the remaining files to the client.

I tried sleeping until all files were loaded and then returning 1 as a normal reponse and pushing the other ones. This works, but as you can imagine, I don’t want to wait for all files to load.
So I tried to create a goroutine that loads the files and tries to push them to the client while the main function returns after receiving the first file.

However, when doing this, I get a segmentation violation, more specifically the “http2responseWriterState” of the “http2responseWriter” is nil. Note that the “http2responseWriter” itself is not nil.

I know this is a pretty specific problem, but does anyone have an idea what might cause this?

Edit: Even if I pause the main function and not return immediately, this segmentation violation still occurrs. So I don’t think the problem is the responseWriter closing before I try to write to it.

Is this about Caddy or are you asking a Go question? If you’re writing Go code, you should probably ask on the Go forum: and be sure to post your code, or nobody will be able to help you.
