NRP (Node Redis Pubsub)
This library is now mainly maintained by @rangermauve and @narcisoguillen
Simple pubsub for node using Redis. Why use NRP instead of Node's EventEmitter? It is useful when your Node application needs to share data with other applications. In that case EventEmitter will not help you, you need an external pubsub provider. Redis is pretty good at this, but its pubsub API is strange. So you use this wrapper.
Install and test
$ npm install node-redis-pubsub # Install locally$ npm install -g node-redis-pubsub # Install globally$$ make test # test (devDependencies need to be installed and a Redis server up)
for a trusted environment where Redis runs locally, unprotected on a port blocked by firewall.
var NRP = ;var config =port : 6379 // Port of your locally running Redis serverscope : 'demo' // Use a scope to prevent two NRPs from sharing messages;var nrp = config; // This is the NRP client
for a remote Redis server
var NRP = ;var config =port: 1234 // Port of your remote Redis serverhost: 'path.to.remote.redis.host' // Redis server host, defaults to 127.0.0.1auth: 'password' // Passwordscope: 'demo' // Use a scope to prevent two NRPs from sharing messages;var nrp = config; // This is the NRP client
heroku and other services provide you with an environment variable REDIS_URL
var NRP = ;var url = processenvREDIS_URL;var config =url: url;var nrp = config; // This is the NRP client
reuse existing redis pub and sub connections
var NRP = ;var redisPub = redis;var redisSub = redis;var config =emitter: redisPub // Pass in an existing redis connection that should be used for pubreceiver: redisSub // Pass in an existing redis connection that should be used for subvar nrp = config; // This is the NRP client
nrp;nrp; // Outputs 'Hello Louis'// You can use patterns to capture all messages of a certain type// The matched channel is given as a second parameter to the callbacknrp;nrp; // Outputs 'Paris is great'nrp; // Outputs 'San Francisco is great'
Do something after subscribe finishes
var unsubscribe = nrp;;
Shut down connections
// Safely (connections will be closed properly once all commands are sent)nrp;// Dangerously (connections will be immediately terminated)nrp;
