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.
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.
