What is amq-protocol.

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?

See this page about AMQP gems family


gem install amq-protocol


Make sure you have Python and the mako templating package installed. amq-protocol uses RabbitMQ protocol code generation library that is in Python, so there is some Python involved in the build. Don't fret.

To regenerate lib/amq/protocol/client.rb from the source (protocol.rb.pytemplate), run


To make changes, do not edit client.rb directly. Instead, edit protocol.rb.pytemplate and regenerate.

To run tests, use

bundle install --binstubs
./bin/rspec -c spec spec
