= rufus-sqs


== getting it

    sudo gem install -y rufus-sqs

or at

http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=4812


== usage

At first, 'rufus-sqs' expects to find the Amazon WebServices keys in four environment variables : AMAZON_KEY_ID, AMAZON_ACCESS_KEY_ID, AMAZON_ACCESS_KEY and AMAZON_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY

(Like the gem "aws-s3" http://amazon.rubyforge.org/ does).


For example, I store them in a file named .amazon that gets loaded when necessary :

    export AMAZON_KEY_ID=171A375Y3DY838652G2
    export AMAZON_ACCESS_KEY_ID=17r37R45YZDY252G2
    
    export AMAZON_ACCESS_KEY=iOML8QLPy5DB5sCUoS0LbJcA2/OChUUNky
    export AMAZON_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=ibMU8QfPDB5sCUgS0NLbScA2/OChUHNy


Some example code :

    qs = Rufus::SQS::QueueService.new
    
    qs.create_queue "mytestqueue"
    
    msg = "hello SQS world !"
    
    msg_id = qs.put_message "mytestqueue", msg

    put msg_id
        # will print something like 
        # 0MQFS772Z73BG5R9QD6V|A717CAQHX0CS7N69WY71|M57DGQ7TB7T3MFY3J1X0
    
    sleep 1
    
    msgs = qs.get_messages "mytestqueue"
    
    puts msgs[0].message_body
        # => 'hello SQS world !"
    
    qs.delete_queue "mytestqueue"
