  • options: Accepts all options for Redis' createClient() method.

Create an instance

  // in Simple mode
  var PubSub = new redisPubSub('simple'))

  // or Query mode
  var PubSub = new redisPubSub()

Set up an emiter

  PubSub.emit(channel, message)
  • channel: Name of a publishing channel, e. g. drain or drain.pipe | defaults to *
  • message: Object to be published. Strings do not apply!.

Set up a listener

in Query mode (default)

  var sub = PubSub.on(query, filter, callback = function (data, channel, pattern) {
    // process your data here
  })
  • query: query to filter messages. Supports mongoDB-like queries and regular expressions.
  • filter: filter returned data by displaying only selected keys
  • callback: function to process returned data sent on a specific channel and captured by a listener pattern

  var sub = PubSub.on(channel, callback = function (data, channel, pattern) {
    // process your data here
  })
  • channel: channel name or pattern e. g. drain.pipe or drain.*.
  • callback: function to process returned data sent on a specific channel and captured by a listener pattern
Function returns reference to subscription.

Disable a listener

You can unsubscribe by:

  // calling a reference object from when subscribing
  sub([callback])

  // or using the reference as a param (single or multiple as an array)
  PubSub.off(target[, callback])
  • target: reference to a subscription or an array of subscription objects
  • callback: optional
