EMPessimistic

Pessimistic child processes for EventMachine.

EventMachine provides both EM.popen and EM::DeferrableChildProcess, but none of them are particularly useful in the case of your process exiting with an error.

EMPessimistic provides popen3 and a DeferrableChildProcess that caters for failing child processes.

API Docs

EMPessimistic.popen3(cmd, handler=nil, *args)

Works like EM::popen. Additionally, it sends data from the process' stderr to the handler's receive_stderr method.

require "em_pessimistic"
require "eventmachine"

class LsHandler < EventMachine::Connection
  def initialize(*args)
    puts "Initializing command"
  end

  def receive_data(data)
    puts "Received stdout: #{data}"
  end

  def receive_stderr(data)
    puts "Received stderr: #{data}"
  end

  def unbind
    puts "All done"
    EM.stop
  end
end

EM.run do
  EMPessimistic.popen3("ls -l", LsHandler)
  EMPessimistic.popen3("ls -l /oh/noes", LsHandler)
end

EMPessimistic.::DeferrableChildProcess

Works mostly like EM::DeferrableChildProcess.

If the process spawned by EMPessimistic::DeferrableChildProcess.open exits cleanly, the returned deferrable will invoke the callback with three arguments - data, which is a string representing the process' stdout, error, which is a string representing the process' stderr and status, which is a Process::Status object.

If the process spawned by EMPessimistic::DeferrableChildProcess.open exits with an error, the returned deferrable will invoke the errback with three arguments - error, which is a string representing the process' stderrdata, which is a string representing the process' stderr and status, which is a Process::Status object.

# I suppose that EM has already been run.

child = EMPessimistic::DeferrableChildProcess.open(command)

child.callback do |data, err, status|
  # Your code here...
end

child.errback do |data, err, status|
  # Your code here...
end
