amq-protocol is an AMQP 0.9.1 serialization library for Ruby. It is not an
AMQP client: amq-protocol only handles serialization and deserialization.
If you want to write your own AMQP client, this gem can help you with that.
How does amq-protocol relate to amqp gem, amq-client and libraries like bunny?
If you use Bundler and want to use the very latest version, add this to your Gemfile:
gem 'amq-protocol', :git => 'https://github.com/ruby-amqp/amq-protocol.git'
If you need to see what AMQP methods are encoded, just regenerate the protocol file using
./tasks.rb generate --development and then set
true for which parts of code you want to see the debug statements.
You can always find nightly builds at gems.101ideas.cz.
You can install them thusly:
wget http://gems.101ideas.cz/amq-protocol-nightly.gem gem install amq-protocol-nightly.gem
If you want to change some code, don’t edit
that file is generated from
which is a template file used by
codegen.py. You can re-generate by running
nake ./tasks.rb generate
Please note that nake gem only runs on Ruby 1.9.2.
