A base class and utilities for AM service architecture

Project description

CircleCI PyPI - Python Version PyPI - License

A python toolkit to develop services within the Allo-Media event-driven architecture, with debug utilities.

Overview

The Allo-Media event-driven service architecture is language and framework independent and is described in the following document:

Blog post coming soon…

eventail.async_service

This package provides base classes for implementating fully asynchronous services conforming to this architecture on RabbitMQ. To develop a service, just inherit one of the class (either async_service.pika.Service or async_service.aio.Service if you want async/await) and provide a concrete implementation of the abstract methods to code the specific behavior of your service.

All the burden of communication, message safety, recovery, availability, load balancing and queue/exchange setup is taken care for you by this base class and RabbitMQ. It also provides a kind of supervisor to ensure automatic reconnection after a network failure.

You just need to focus on the service logic you develop and then you can deploy as many instances of your service as you see fit, anywhere on the network, and the load will be automatically load-balanced between them.

eventail.sync_publisher

A kombu based synchronous Endpoint for publishing purposes only (events and logs). This is provided to help you port legacy applications to the EDA.

Command line utilities

This package also provide some debugging command line tools :

  • a logger that can target specific logs (service & criticity) through topic subscription;
  • a utility to send events on the bus;
  • a utility to send a command on the bus, wait for its result and display the outcome;
  • a utility to monitor events and/or commands;
  • a utility to inspect queues;
  • and a utility to resurrect (replay) dead messages.

Note about dead letters

The base code does not create the dead-letters exchange (DLX) for you, nor the dead-letter queues. It's good practice to do it once and configure the queues with a policy :

rabbitmqctl set_policy DLX ".*\.events|.*\.commands" '{"dead-letter-exchange":"am-dlx"}' --apply-to queues

Note that a policy applies to existing and future queues as well, so you don't have to reissue those commands each time a new service appears!

Usage

API

The API documentation is on ReadTheDocs.
