The ubsub-client is a nodejs module to easily connect to send and receive events from UbSub using sockets and https via CLI.
NOTICE: This package is now ONLY the cli. API and streaming functions have been broken out into libubsub
To use the
ubsub CLI on your command line, make sure you have a recent version of NodeJS installed, and then run:
npm install -g ubsub ubsub login
Once installed, you can run
ubsub help from command line to see help output.
There are also static builds for mac, linux, and windows in the releases section.
Outputting events to the terminal
ubsub listen <topic id>
Forwarding to an internal URL
One of the great uses is the ability to forward an external event URL to something behind your firewall and/or NAT.
ubsub forward <topic id> http://localhost:4000/path/to/it --method POST
This will invoke the endpoint every time the public UbSub URL is hit.
Creating external URL to forward
This is similar to forward, but will create a new topic automatically to be hit.
ubsub webhook http://localhost:4000 [--method POST] [--name mywebhook] [--keyless]
The URL for this topic will be output after starting, and deleted automatically upon exist (unless
--keep is specified).
Piping stdin to a topic
You can also pipe stdin (or a file) to a topic.
# Piping and following syslog to a topic tail -f /var/log/syslog | ubsub pipe <topicId>
You're able to completely manage templates via the CLI client.
Get existing template:
ubsub templates get --id <id>
Upload a template (will create new if
--id is unspecified):
# Update ubsub templates push --id <id> filename.js # Create new ubsub templates push --lang JSVM --name test filename.js
Other useful commands include things like:
- topics - View list of all topics and subscriptions
- events - List all historic events
- tokens - Manage and list tokens
