What is Bunnyq?

Bunnyq aims to be a RabbitMQ administration and testing/development swiss army knife. It allows you to do a large (and growing) number of tasks that are supported by RabbitMQ's RESTful HTTP Management API. To get a list of current tasks that are supported, run '?' from within the shell. Here's the output at time of writing (Feb. 2012):

guest@localhost: ?

Documented commands (type help <topic>):
create_binding   delete_exchange  get_status           list_vhosts   xlist
create_exchange  delete_queue     list_queue_bindings  purge_queue
create_queue     dump_message     list_users           send_message

Undocumented commands:
EOF  connect  exit  help  qlist


  • It's easy to use and works on any RabbitMQ server running the HTTP Management API.
  • Provides an interactive shell to issue commands to the server.
  • Optional 'one-shot' mode: you don't have to launch a full-blown shell if you just want to send one command to a host.
  • Optional config file makes it easy to deal with managing a lot of servers without getting carpal tunnel syndrome.
  • Really easy to extend to add new commands.
  • If readline is available, command history and completion should work. On my test machine (a mac running Lion), history and completion both work.



$ sudo pip install bunnyq

Installation puts a command called 'bunnyq' in your path, so running 'bunnyq' at a command line should get you where you want to go. For help run 'bunnyq --help', and for help with commands within the bunnyq shell, type '?' in the bunnyq shell.
