nameko wamp

Web Application Messaging Protocol (WAMP) for the nameko microservices framework

Nameko Wamp provides Extensions for WAMP PUB-SUB and RPC. Here is a (silly) example service implementing WAMP entrypoints and dependencies.


from nameko_wamp.extensions.dependencies import Caller, Publisher
from nameko_wamp.extensions.entrypoints import consume, callee

class WeatherService:

name = "weather_service"

# a Dependency used to make remote procedure calls over WAMP.
# note that we don't need to know what nameko service implements
# a particular remote procedure.
caller = Caller()
# another Dependency to publish messages to Topics.
publihser = Publisher()

def get_weather(self):
# the weather is always sunny here!
return "sunny"

def weather_updates(self, topic_data):
# and do something with the new weather data here

One method is marked as a "callee", which is a WAMP Role, and another is marked as a WAMP "caller" Role. The former is callable over RPC and is (almost) exactly the same as the nameko ``rpc`` Extension. The latter consumes from a WAMP Topic and appears exactly the same as the nameko ``event_handler`` Extension.

There is also the dependency injection ``caller``. Yet another WAMP Role, this allows outgoing RPC calls from your service to other nameko services. Finally the WAMP Role ``publisher`` dependency which allows a service API to publish messages to WAMP Topics.



Under the hood **nameko-wamp** uses wampy_ as the Client Peer. Wampy uses **Gevent** by default for async networking whilst nameko uses **Eventlet**, so you must instruct wampy to use *eventlet* too.


$ export WAMPY_ASYNC_NAME=eventlet

You can use a stand-alone **wampy** Client to interact with your nameko services too. See the wampy_ project for more details, but the standard pattern is:


with Client(url="ws://") as client:
result = client.rpc.get_weather()
assert result == "sunny"

# and publish to a Topic
client.publish(topic="foobar", message={...})

Note that when I call a remote procedure there is no reference to the service that provides it - and this is different to core nameko where a service name must be provided. This simpler behaviour is explained by the Router Peer which maintains all the registrations and subscriptions on behalf of WAMP clients implementing these Roles.
