IronMQ Ruby Client

Getting Started

Install the gem:

gem install ironmq

Create an IronMQ client object:

@client = IronMQ::Client.new('token'=>'MYTOKEN', 'project_id'=>'MYPROJECTID')

You can get your token and project_id at http://www.iron.io .

The Basics

Push a message on the queue:

res = @client.messages.post("hello world!")
p res

Pop a message off the queue:

res = @client.messages.get()
p res

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 10 minutes).

Delete a message from the queue:

res = @client.messages.delete(res["id"])
p res

Delete a message from the queue when you're done with it.

Queue Selection

One of the following:

  1. Pass :queue_name=>'my_queue' into IronMQ::Client.new
  2. @client.queue_name = 'my_queue'
  3. Pass :queue_name=>'my_queue' into any post(), get(), or delete()
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
