Build Status

mruby-zmq

mruby bindings for https://github.com/zeromq/libzmq (v4)

Everything libzmq offers is mapped 1:1 to the LibZMQ namespace, no beautification was done. High level ruby functions are inside the ZMQ Namespace, you can find most of it inside the mrblib folder, except some of the Msg and Socket classes functions which have to be done in c.

As a bonus a Threading abstraction can be found in the ZMQ::Thread and ZMQ::Thread_fn Namespaces.

Installation

If you dont have libzmq installed on a non Windows platform we will build it and statically link it into your mruby app. If you have it installed you need to have pkg-config installed. Then add

conf.gem mgem: 'mruby-zmq'

to your build_config.rb

Examples

Sockets

Client to Server

server = ZMQ::Server.new("tcp://127.0.0.1:*") # you can optionally add a boolean argument if it should connect instead of bind
client = ZMQ::Client.new(server.last_endpoint) # you can optionally add a boolean argument if it should bind instead of connect

client.send("hello")
msg = server.recv
puts msg['Peer-Address'] # This gets you the metadata of a message
puts msg.to_str
msg2 = ZMQ::Msg.new("hello too")
msg2.routing_id = msg.routing_id
msg2.send(server)
puts client.recv.to_str

Dealer to Router

router = ZMQ::Router.new("tcp://127.0.0.1:*")
dealer = ZMQ::Dealer.new(router.last_endpoint)

dealer.send("hello")
msg = router.recv
puts msg[1].to_str
router.send([msg[0], "hello too"])
puts dealer.recv.to_str

Pub to Sub

pub = ZMQ::Pub.new("tcp://127.0.0.1:*")
sub = ZMQ::Sub.new(pub.last_endpoint, "testme")
# you have to wait a short time here because of the slow joiner Problem
pub.send("testme hallo")
puts sub.recv.to_str

Threading

thread = ZMQ::Thread.new # you can optionally add a background class here which manages the thread, all arguments get passed to the background thread too
string = thread.new(String, "hallo")
puts string.send(:to_str)
puts string.async(:upcase!)
puts string.to_str # this gets routed through method_missing and is as such a bit slower

Logging

You can define a environment variable called ZMQ_LOGGER_ENDPOINT to create pub sockets which connect to that endpoint. There is also a ZMQ_LOGGER_IDENT env var which adds a ident to each msg from ZMQ.logger

ZMQ.logger.info("hallo")
