(Yet another) Perl worker / client library for running jobs asynchronously.




package AddTwoNumbers;

use strict;
use warnings;

use Moose;
with 'MediaCloud::JobManager::Job';

sub run($;$)
    my ( $self, $args ) = @_;

    my $number_1 = $args->{ number_1 };
    my $number_2 = $args->{ number_2 };

    # Write the sum to the database here
    say STDERR "Sum: " . ( $number_1 + $number_2 );

    return 1;

no Moose;    # gets rid of scaffolding

# Return package name instead of 1 or otherwise won't know the
# name of the package it's loading


use AddTwoNumbers;

my $args = { number_1 => 3, number_2 => 4 };

# Run locally, like any other function
AddTwoNumbers->run_locally( $args );

# Run remotely, wait for the function to finish
AddTwoNumbers->run_remotely( $args );

# Add to broker's queue and return instantly, don't wait for the function to finish
AddTwoNumbers->add_to_queue( $args );

Development Notes


OS X doesn't provide OpenSSL headers required by Net::AMQP::RabbitMQ, so before installing this module run:

# Install OpenSSL from Homebrew which provides required headers
brew install openssl

# Make Net::AMQP::RabbitMQ's Makefile look for OpenSSL headers in /usr/local/opt/openssl;
# also, remove MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET from LD and use just "cc"
export PERL_MM_OPT='CCFLAGS="-I/usr/local/opt/openssl/include" LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/opt/openssl/lib" LD="env cc"'

Code formatting

Install perltidy Git hook to automatically fix script formatting:

cpanm --installdeps .
githook-perltidy install
You can’t perform that action at this time.
