BERTRPC

By Tom Preston-Werner (tom@mojombo.com)

BERT-RPC client library for Ruby. Makes it ridiculously simple to interface with BERT-RPC servers.

See the full BERT-RPC specification at bert-rpc.org.

This library currently only supports the following BERT-RPC features:

  • call requests
  • cast requests

BERTRPC was developed for GitHub and is currently in production use performing millions of RPC requests every day. The stability and performance have been exemplary.

Installation

$ gem install bertrpc

Examples

Require the library and create a service:

require 'bertrpc'
svc = BERTRPC::Service.new('localhost', 9999)

Make a call:

svc.call.calc.add(1, 2)
# => 3

The underlying BERT-RPC transaction of the above call is:

-> {call, calc, add, [1, 2]}
<- {reply, 3}

Make a cast:

svc.cast.stats.incr
# => nil

The underlying BERT-RPC transaction of the above cast is:

-> {cast, stats, incr, []}
<- {noreply}

Documentation

Creating a service:

# No timeout
svc = BERTRPC::Service.new('localhost', 9999)

# 10s socket read timeout, raises BERTRPC::ReadTimeoutError
svc = BERTRPC::Service.new('localhost', 9999, 10)
