autoqueue

Helps AMQP publishers keep their bindings up.

In some cases it's useful to be able to switch application features on and off by creating and deleting queues. This module simplfies the publisher's job in this situation by making sure bindings are re-applied when the queue is recreated.

Installation

No surprises here:

npm install autoqueue

Usage

Constructor

var myAutoQueue = new AutoQueue(connectionInfo)

Creates a new AutoQueue object (no, really!) with connection information like this:

var connectionInfo = {
  "connection": {
    "host": "localhost",
    "port": 5672,
    "vhost": "MyVirtualHost",
    "login": "guest",
    "password": "guest"
  },
  "exchange": {
    "name": "MyExchange",
    "options": {
      "durable": true,
      "passive": false
    },
    "queueBindings": {
      "MyRoutingKey": ["MyQueue"]
    }
  },
  "publish": {
    "routingKey": "MyRoutingKey",
    "deliveryMode": 2
  }
};

In this example, AutoQueue will connect to MyVirtualHost on the local machine with default credenitals. The publish method will send messages to MyExchange with MyRoutingKey, and it will make sure that if MyQueue exists then it will receive them.

You can add more entries to queueBindings and your message will be sent to more queues if they are present.

initialize

myAutoQueue.initialize(callback)

Makes the connection and performs initial binding if the queue is present.

publish

myAutoQueue.publish(id, payload, contentType, callback)

Publishes a message to the exchange.

close

myAutoQueue.close()

Closes all connections.
