GenRMQ

GenRMQ is a set of behaviours meant to be used to create RabbitMQ consumers and publishers.

Internally it is using the AMQP elixir RabbitMQ client. The idea is to reduce boilerplate consumer / publisher code, which usually includes:

  • creating connection / channel and keeping it in a state
  • creating and binding queue
  • handling reconnections / consumer cancellations

GenRMQ provides the following functionality:

  • GenRMQ.Consumer - a behaviour for implementing RabbitMQ consumers (example)
  • GenRMQ.Publisher - a behaviour for implementing RabbitMQ publishers (example)
  • GenRMQ.Processor - a behaviour for implementing RabbitMQ message processors (this is useful to separate out business logic from your consumer) (example)
  • GenRMQ.Consumer.Telemetry - telemetry events emitted by a GenRMQ consumer
  • GenRMQ.Publisher.Telemetry - telemetry events emitted by a GenRMQ publisher
  • GenRMQ.RabbitCase - test utilities for RabbitMQ (example)

Installation

def deps do
  [{:gen_rmq, "~> 3.0.0"}]
end

Migrations

Version 3.0.0 has been released. Please check how to migrate to gen_rmq 3.0.0.

Examples

More thorough examples for using GenRMQ.Consumer, GenRMQ.Publisher, and GenRMQ.Processor can be found under documentation.

Consumer

defmodule Consumer do
  @behaviour GenRMQ.Consumer

  @impl GenRMQ.Consumer
  def init() do
    [
      queue: "gen_rmq_in_queue",
      exchange: "gen_rmq_exchange",
      routing_key: "#",
      prefetch_count: "10",
      connection: "amqp://guest:guest@localhost:5672",
      retry_delay_function: fn attempt -> :timer.sleep(2000 * attempt) end
    ]
  end

  @impl GenRMQ.Consumer
  def consumer_tag() do
    "test_tag"
  end

  @impl GenRMQ.Consumer
  def handle_message(message) do
    ...
  end

  @impl GenRMQ.Consumer
  def handle_error(message, _reason) do
    GenRMQ.Consumer.reject(message, true)
  end
end
GenRMQ.Consumer.start_link(Consumer, name: Consumer)

This will result in:

  • durable gen_rmq_exchange.deadletter exchange created or redeclared
  • durable gen_rmq_in_queue_error queue created or redeclared. It will be bound to gen_rmq_exchange.deadletter
  • durable topic gen_rmq_exchange exchange created or redeclared
  • durable gen_rmq_in_queue queue created or redeclared. It will be bound to gen_rmq_exchange exchange and has a deadletter exchange set to gen_rmq_exchange.deadletter
  • every handle_message callback will be executed in a separate supervised Task. This can be disabled by setting concurrency: false in init callback
  • on failed rabbitmq connection it will wait for a bit and then reconnect

There are many options to control the consumer setup details, please check the c:GenRMQ.Consumer.init/0 docs for all available settings.

Publisher

defmodule Publisher do
  @behaviour GenRMQ.Publisher

  def init() do
    [
      exchange: "gen_rmq_exchange",
      connection: "amqp://guest:guest@localhost:5672"
    ]
  end
end
GenRMQ.Publisher.start_link(Publisher, name: Publisher)
GenRMQ.Publisher.publish(Publisher, Jason.encode!(%{msg: "msg"}))
