patrun-emitter

Let's just use Objects as events!

patrun-emitter  

An Opinionated Message Queue with an emitter-style API, but with objects as events, plus callbacks.

$ npm install patrun-emitter --save

var mq = require('patrun-emitter')
  , emitter = mq({ concurrency: 5 })
  , message
 
emitter.on({ topic: 'hello world' }, function(messagecb) {
  // call callback when you are done 
  // do not pass any errors, the emitter cannot handle it. 
  cb()
})
 
// topic is just a convetion 
// we can use anything else! 
message = { topic: 'hello world', payload: 'or any other fields' }
emitter.emit(message, function() {
  // emitter will never return an error 
})

PatrunEmitter is the class and function exposed by this module. It can be created by PatrunEmitter() or using new PatrunEmitter().

An PatrunEmitter accepts the following options:

  • concurrency: the maximum number of concurrent messages that can be on concurrent delivery.

Emit the given message.


Add the given callback to the passed pattern, see patrun for the matching rules.

The callback, accept two parameters, the passed message and a done callback.

The callback must never error and done must not be called with an err object.


The inverse of on.
