SQSReadableStream

NPM

Create a Readable Node.JS stream from an Amazon Simple Queue Service (AWS SQS) queue.

By default it will carry on waiting for items on the queue forever, it will retry on errors and backpreasure is handled appropriately.

Install

npm install --save sqs-readable-stream

Example

var AWS = require('aws-sdk');
var SQSReadableStream = require('sqs-readable-stream');
var sqs = new AWS.SQS({
  apiVersion: '2012-11-05',
  region: 'us-east-1',
  accessKeyId: 'YOUR AMAZON ACCESS KEY',
  
});
 
var sqsStream = new SQSReadableStream({
    sqsClient: this.sqsClient,
    queueUrl: queueUrl
});
 
sqsStream.on('data', function (message) {
  console.log('New message:', message.Body);
  message.deleteMessage(function (err) {
    if (err) {
      console.log('Failed to delete message')
    } else (
      console.log('Deleted message');
    }
  });
});
 
sqsStream.on('error', function (error) {
  console.log('Error receiving messages:', error);
});

If you want to process the messages asynchronously while avoiding overload you might consider using this library with my through2-concurrent library. Here's a gist with some example code.

Messages

The messages passed through the stream are as returned from aws-sdk with the addition of a deleteMessage method which can be used as a shortcut to delete the message from the queue.

Constructor Options

The following options can be passed into the constructor.

  • sqsClient (required) :: An instance of the SQS class from the AWS SDK (or something else that acts like one)
  • queueUrl (required) :: The URL of the SQS Queue to read from
  • receiveMessageOptions :: Options to pass into the calls to receiveMessage. Defaults to:
{
  AttributeNames: [ 'All' ],
  MaxNumberOfMessages: 10,
  WaitTimeSeconds: 20
}
  • retryOnErrors (default: true) :: Controls whether it will retry after receiving errors from SQS.
  • initialBackoff (default: 100) :: Time (ms) to wait for first retry (will increase by doubling for each consecutive error)
  • maxBackoff (default: 15000) :: Maximum time (ms) to wait for a retry
  • stopOnQueueEmpty (default: false) :: Controls whether it will stop (eg emit and end event and stop requesting new messages) when the Queue is empty. The default behaviour is to wait for new items forever.
