Mangos™ v2 is an implementation in pure Go of the SP (“Scalability Protocols”) messaging system. These are colloquially known as a “nanomsg”.
||This is version 2 of mangos, and contains breaking changes and rather different API in some circumstances relative to version 1. To use the original version of mangos please see https://github.com/nanomsg/mangos|
The modern C implemenation of the SP protocols is available as NNG™.
The original implementation of the SP protocols is available as nanomsg™.
Generally (modulo a few caveats) all of these implementations can interoperate.
The design is intended to make it easy to add new transports with almost trivial effort, as well as new topologies (“protocols” in SP parlance.)
At present, all of the Req/Rep, Pub/Sub, Pair, Bus, Push/Pull, and Surveyor/Respondent patterns are supported. This project also supports an experimental protocol called Star.
Supported transports include TCP, inproc, IPC, WebSocket, WebSocket/TLS and TLS. Forcing the local TCP port in Dial is not supported yet (this is rarely useful).
Basic interoperability with nanomsg and NNG has been verified (you can do
so yourself with
macat) for all protocols and transports
that NNG and nanomsg support.
Additionally there are a number of projects that use the two products together.
Using go get
$ go get -u nanomsg.org/go/mangos/v2
You can use
go get -u -a to update all installed packages.
For docs, see http://godoc.org/nanomsg.org/go-mangos or run:
$ godoc nanomsg.org/go/mangos/v2
This package supports internal self tests, which can be run in the idiomatic Go way. (Note that most of the tests are in a test subdirectory.)
$ go test nanomsg.org/go/mangos/v2/...
There are also internal benchmarks available:
$ go test -bench=. nanomsg.org/go/mangos/v2/test
Some examples are posted in the directories under
examples/ in this project.
These examples are rewrites (in Go) of Tim Dysinger’s Getting Started with Nanomsg.
godoc in the example directories will yield information about how
to run each example program.
