PHP language binding for IronMQ
IronMQ is an elastic message queue for managing data and event flow within cloud applications and between systems.
To start using iron_mq_php, you need to sign up and get an oauth token.
There are two ways to use iron_mq_php:
Using precompiled phar archive:
iron_mq.phar to target directory and include it:
<?php require_once "phar://iron_mq.phar";
Please note, phar extension available by default only from php 5.3.0 For php 5.2 you should install phar manually or use second option.
Using classes directly
IronMQ.class.phpto target directory
IronCore.class.phpthere and copy to target directory
- Include both of them:
<?php require_once "IronCore.class.php" require_once "IronMQ.class.php"
Three ways to configure IronMQ:
- Passing array with options:
<?php $ironmq = new IronMQ(array( 'token' => 'XXXXXXXXX', 'project_id' => 'XXXXXXXXX' ));
- Passing ini file name which stores your configuration options. Rename sample_config.ini to config.ini and include your Iron.io credentials (
<?php $ironmq = new IronMQ('config.ini');
Automatic config search - pass zero arguments to constructor and library will try to find config file in following locations:
iron.iniin current directory
iron.jsonin current directory
IRON_MQ_PROJECT_IDand other environment variables
IRON_PROJECT_IDand other environment variables
.iron.iniin user's home directory
.iron.jsonin user's home directory
Push a message on the queue:
<?php $ironmq->postMessage("test_queue", "Hello world");
More complex example:
<?php $ironmq->postMessage("test_queue", array( "body" => "Test Message", "timeout" => 120, # Timeout, in seconds. After timeout, item will be placed back on queue. Defaults to 60. 'delay' => 5, # The item will not be available on the queue until this many seconds have passed. Defaults to 0. 'expires_in' => 2*24*3600 # How long, in seconds, to keep the item on the queue before it is deleted. ));
Pop a message off the queue:
When you pop/get a message from the queue, it will NOT be deleted. It will eventually go back onto the queue after a timeout if you don't delete it (default timeout is 60 seconds).
Delete a message from the queue:
<?php $ironmq->deleteMessage("test_queue", $message_id);
Delete a message from the queue when you're done with it.
http error: 0
If you see
Uncaught exception 'Http_Exception' with message 'http error: 0 | '
it most likely caused by misconfigured cURL https sertificates.
There are two ways to fix this error:
1) Disable SSL sertificate verification - add this line after $ironmq initialization:
$ironmq->ssl_verifypeer = false;
2) Switch to http protocol - add this to configuration options:
protocol = http and
port = 80
