Helper to simply implement a worker RSMQ ( Redis Simple Message Queue ).

NPM

⚠️ Note: RSMQ uses the Redis EVAL command (LUA scripts) so the minimum Redis version is 2.6+.

Install

  npm install rsmq-worker

Initialize

  new RSMQWorker( queuename, options );

Example:

  var RSMQWorker = require( "rsmq-worker" );
  var worker = new RSMQWorker( "myqueue" );
 
  worker.on( "message", function( msg, next, id ){
   // process your message
   console.log("Message id : " + id);
   console.log(msg);
   next()
  });
 
  // optional error listeners
  worker.on('error', function( err, msg ){
      console.log( "ERROR", err, msg.id );
  });
  worker.on('exceeded', function( msg ){
      console.log( "EXCEEDED", msg.id );
  });
  worker.on('timeout', function( msg ){
      console.log( "TIMEOUT", msg.id, msg.rc );
  });
 
  worker.start();

Config

  • queuename: ( String required ) The queuename to pull the messages
  • options ( Object optional ) The configuration object
    • options.interval: ( Number[] optional; default = [ 0, 1, 5, 10 ] ) An Array of increasing wait times in seconds
    • options.maxReceiveCount: ( Number optional; default = 10 ) Receive count until a message will be exceeded
    • options.invisibletime: ( Number optional; default = 30 ) A time in seconds to hide a message after it has been received.
    • options.defaultDelay: ( Number optional; default = 1 ) The default delay in seconds for for sending new messages to the queue.
    • options.autostart: ( Boolean optional; default = false ) Autostart the worker on init
    • options.timeout: ( Number optional; default = 3000 ) Message processing timeout in ms. So you have to call the next() method of message at least after e.g. 3000ms. If set to 0 it'll wait until infinity.
    • options.customExceedCheck: ( Function optional; ) A custom function, with the raw message (see message format) as argument to build a custom exceed check. If you return a true the message will not exceed. On return false the regular check for maxReceiveCount will be used.
    • options.alwaysLogErrors: ( Boolean optional; default = false ) An error will be logged to the console even if an error listener has been attached.
    • options.rsmq: ( RedisSMQ optional; default = null ) A already existing rsmq instance to use instead of creating a new client
    • options.redis: ( RedisClient optional; default = null ) A already existing redis client instance to use if no rsmq instance has been defined
    • options.redisPrefix: ( String optional; default = "" ) The redis prefix/namespace for rsmq if no rsmq instance has been defined. This has to match the option ns of RSMQ.
    • options.host: ( String optional; default = "localhost" ) Host to connect to redis if no rsmq or redis instance has been defined
    • options.port: ( Number optional; default = 6379 ) Port to connect to redis if no rsmq or redis instance has been defined
    • options.options: ( Object optional; default = {} ) Options to connect to redis if no rsmq or redis instance has been defined

Raw message format

A message ( e.g. received by the event data or customExceedCheck ) contains the following keys:

  • msg.message : ( String ) The queue message content. You can use complex content by using a stringified JSON.
  • msg.id : ( String ) The rsmq internal message id
  • msg.sent : ( Number ) Timestamp of when this message was sent / created.
  • msg.fr : ( Number ) Timestamp of when this message was first received.
  • msg.rc : ( Number ) Number of times this message was received.

Methods

.start()

If you haven't defined the config autostart to true you have to call the .start() method.

Return

( Self ): The instance itself for chaining.

.stop()

Just stop the receive interval. This will not cut the connection to rsmq/redis. If you want you script to end call .quit()

Return

( Self ): The instance itself for chaining.

.send( msg [, delay ][, cb ] )

Helper function to simply send a message in the configured queue.

Arguments

  • msg : ( String required ): The rsmq message. In best practice it's a stringified JSON with additional data.
  • delay : ( Number optional; default = 0 ): The message delay to hide this message for the next x seconds.
  • cb : ( Function optional ): An optional callback to get a secure response for a successful send.

Return

( Self ): The instance itself for chaining.

.del( id [, cb ] )

Helper function to simply delete a message after it has been processed.

Arguments

  • id : ( String required ): The rsmq message id.
  • cb : ( Function optional ): A optional callback to get a secure response for a successful delete.

Return

( Self ): The instance itself for chaining.

.changeInterval( interval )

Change the interval timeouts in operation.

Arguments

  • interval : ( Number|Array required ): The new interval.

Return

( Self ): The instance itself for chaining.

.quit()

Stop the worker and close the connection. After this it's no longer possible to reuse the worker-instance. It's just intended to kill all timers and connections so your script will end.

.info( cb )

Get the current queue attributes. This is just a shortcut to the rsmq.getQueueAttributes.

Arguments

  • cb : ( Function ): Callback with ( err, attributes ). See rsmq-docs for details.

.size( [hidden=false], cb )

Get the current queue size.

Arguments

  • hidden : ( Boolean optional; default = false ): The count of messages including the currently hidden/"in flight" messages.
  • cb : ( Function optional ): Callback with ( err, size ). The size is a Number and repersents the number of messages in the queue. If hidden=true you will receive the numebr of currently hidden messages

Return

( Self ): The instance itself for chaining.

Events

message

Main event to catch and process a message. If you do not set a handler for this Event nothing will happen.

Example:

worker.on( "message", function( message, next, msgid ){
    // process message ... 
    next();
});

Arguments

  • message : ( String ) The queue message content to process. You can use complex content by using a stringified JSON.
  • next : ( Function ) A function you have to call when your message has been processed.
    Arguments
    • delete: ( Boolean|Error optional; default = true ) Error: If you return an error it will emitted as an error event; Boolean: It's possible to prevent the worker from auto-delete the message on end. This is useful if you want to pop up a message multiple times. To implement this, please check the config options.customExceedCheck
  • msgid : ( String ) The message id. This is useful if you want to delete a message manually.

ready

Fired until the worker is connected to rsmq/redis and has been initialized with the given queuename.

data

The raw event when a message has been received.

Arguments

  • msg : ( String ) The raw rsmq message. ( See section Raw message format )

deleted

Fired after a message has been deleted.

Arguments

  • id : ( String ) The rsmq message id

exceeded

Fired after a message has been exceeded and immediately will be deleted.

Arguments

  • msg : ( String ) The raw rsmq message. ( See section Raw message format )

timeout

Fired if a message processing exceeds the configured timeout.

Arguments

  • msg : ( String ) The raw rsmq message. ( See section Raw message format )

error

Fired if a message processing throws an error.

Arguments

  • err : ( Error|Any ) The thrown error
  • msg : ( String ) The raw rsmq message. ( See section Raw message format )

Todos/Ideas

  • MORE tests!
  • Optional parallel execution. To do multiple receives in parallel.
  • Automatic write of exceeded messages to a configured queue.
