Langohr, a feature-rich Clojure RabbitMQ client that embraces AMQP 0.9.1 Model
Langohr is a Clojure wrapper around the RabbitMQ Java client that embraces AMQP 0.9.1 Model and does not try to hide it behind many layers of DSLs. It is experimental only in the sense that API is not completely locked down at this point: otherwise, it is solid and is used very actively to develop commercial products that involve thousands of nodes communicating over AMQP.
- Embrace AMQP 0.9.1 Model. Follow Java client's API conventions instead of inventing new overly opinionated ones
- Provide additional functions/protocols where it actually saves time (we learned a lot from 3 years history of the Ruby amqp gem development)
- Be well documented. Two example READMEs do not cut it
- Strict TDD development style (with tests sometimes being freeform examples first)
- Support all of the RabbitMQ extensions to AMQP 0.9.1
- Provide support for testing of AMQP applications, including asynchronous workflows
- Provide additional batteries such as CLI interface to AMQP operations
Here is what Langohr does not try to be:
- A replacement for the RabbitMQ Java client
- Sugar-coated API for task queues that hides all the AMQP machinery from the developer
- A port of Ruby amqp gem to Clojure
Langohr is built from the ground up for Clojure 1.3 and up.
Langohr depends on RabbitMQ Java client 2.6.x and thus should work with RabbitMQ versions 2.0 and later.
While the API is largely stabilized at this point, Langohr is a work in progress. Documentation and tutorials site is still not published, not every idea we have is implemented. Keep that in mind.
Snapshot artifacts are released to Clojars every day.
<dependency> <groupId>com.novemberain</groupId> <artifactId>langohr</artifactId> <version>1.0.0-SNAPSHOT</version> </dependency>
CI is hosted by travis-ci.org
Langohr is slowly approaching 1.0 release. A few remaining items before the release are
- Documentation guides.
- Test suite cleanup.
- Some stress tests to set baseline performance expectations.
We expect 1.0 to be released in the 4th quater of 2011.
