Real time feed for fedmsg

Project description

FMN is a family of systems to manage end-user notifications triggered by fedmsg, the Federated Message bus.

The FMN Server-Sent Events server allows users to view their fedmsg feed in realtime using [server-sent events]( It relies on a service to populate the RabbitMQ message queues for it. Typically, this is done with the FMN core services.

## Install

To get fmn.sse directly from PyPi you can use pip:

` pip install fmn.sse `

If you’re using Fedora, you can install it with DNF:

` sudo dnf install python-fmn-sse `

If you’re using CentOS 7, you can install it from EPEL 7 with yum:

` sudo yum install python-fmn-sse `

## Development Environment

To set up the development environment, you can either use Vagrant to provision a virtual machine and automatically configure it, or you can manually set up the environment.

### Vagrant

The easiest way to get a development environment set up is with Vagrant. Refer to the [fmn repository]( for the Vagrantfile and instructions on how to set up Vagrant.

### Manual

1. Install the system dependencies. For Fedora: ` sudo dnf install python python-devel python3-devel python-virtualenvwrapper \ rabbitmq-server python-pip gcc libffi-devel openssl-devel zeromq-devel `

2. Install the Python dependencies: ` pip install -r requirements.txt `

3. Install the fmn.sse package: ` pip install -e . `

## Running

1. Ensure RabbitMQ is running: ` sudo systemctl start rabbitmq-server `

2. Start the SSE server: ` twistd -n -l - -y usr/share/fmn.sse/server.tac `

3. Make sure the server is available. This should return a HTTP 404: ` curl -v http://localhost:8080/ `

## Test Data

` workon sse-py2 pip install pytz python `

## Manual Testing curl seems to work okay for me curl http://localhost:8080/user/bob


open up sse_test_subscriber.html in a browser and look at the JS console

## Running unittests ` workon sse-py2 python test `

with coverage

` workon sse-py2 pip install -r requirements-test.txt py.test --cov=fmn tests/ `

### Common issues

Q: I can’t connect to rabbitmq with pika

A: Make sure you are running rabbitmq sudo systemctl start rabbitmq-server

Q: I get the following error ` pika.exceptions.ChannelClosed: (406, "PRECONDITION_FAILED - inequivalent arg 'x-message-ttl' for queue '' in vhost '/': received '60000' but current is '86400000'") `

A: You have set the queue a ttl that is not the same. You need to either match the ttl or delete the queue and retry.

Go into http://localhost:15672/ and delete the queue. Thats assuming you enabled the management plugin

Q: Nothing is being displayed on the curl

A: Wait a few more seconds, it takes a moment to display the data. If it’s more than a minute check to see if the queue has data via the web ui http://localhost:15672/
