    Remitter

    Build Status

    Description

    Redis is awesome. But have you seen how one accomplishes pub/sub with the (otherwise incredibly awesome) redis module? Good ol' fashion event emitting/listening but using redis instead of node's native event emitter.

    Redis

    You need a redis instance. Configure it in your environment (replace host and port with your instance info)

    $ export REDIS_URL=redis://127.0.0.1:6379/
    

    Install

    $ npm install remitter --save
    

    Usage

      const Remitter = require('remitter');
      const thing = Remitter(process.env.REDIS_URL);
     
      thing
        .connect()
        .then(() => {
          thing.on('foo', (foo) => {
            console.log('foo'); // { beep: 'boop' }
          });
        });
     
        // .... elsewhere in your app - maybe even another process!
        const thing2 = Remitter(process.env.REDIS_URL);
        thing2
          .connect()
          .then(() => {
            thing2.emit('foo', { beep: 'boop' });
          });
      
     
      // ...some time later
      thing.destroy();
      thing1.destroy();
