Pythonic Command & Event buses

Project description

Pythonic implementations of Command and Event Buses

Build Status Coverage Status

Zero-dependencies, flexible implementation of Command Bus. Python 3.6+ only

Basic usage of CommandBus

from typing import List

from pybuses import CommandBus

# Firstly, create command class
class MakeSandwich:
    def __init__(self, ingredients: List[str]) -> None:
        self.ingredients = ingredients

# Then create callable responsible for handling command.
# It must accept only one argument and is required to have type annotation for it.
def sandwich_maker(command: MakeSandwich) -> None:
    print(f'Making sandwich with {command.ingredients}!')

# finally, register the handler by subscribing
command_bus = CommandBus()
command_bus.handle(MakeSandwich(['cheese', 'ham']))


Middlewares are lightweight plugins that let us inject custom logic before and after given command was handled.

Context managers are for now the only supported way of defining middlewares. They simplify exception handling and specifying whether middleware logic should be executed before or after handling event.

import contextlib
from typing import (

def example_middleware(command: Any) -> Generator:
    print(f'Before handling {command}')
    print(f'After handling {command}')

command_bus = CommandBus([example_middleware])
command_bus.handle(MakeSandwich(['cheese', 'ham']))

Basic usage of EventBus

from decimal import Decimal

from pybuses import EventBus

# Create event
class PaymentMade:
    amount: Decimal
    who: int

    def __init__(self, amount: Decimal, who: int) -> None:
        self.amount = amount
        self.who = who

def handler(payment_made: PaymentMade) -> None:
    print(f'Oh, cool! {payment_made.who} paid {payment_made.amount / 100}$!')

event_bus = EventBus()
event_bus.subscribe(handler)'10.99'), 123))

Similarities & differences between Event- and CommandBus

EventBus can have 0 or many handlers subscribed to every event, while CommandBus must have exactly one handler for each command.

CommandBus supports middlewares while EventBus does not.

data classes compatible

Using dataclasses for building commands/events is supported

from dataclasses import dataclass
from typing import List

from pybuses import CommandBus

class MakeSandwich:
    ingredients: List[str]

def handler(command: MakeSandwich) -> None:
    print(f'dataclass-based command: {command}')

command_bus = CommandBus()
command_bus.handle(MakeSandwich(['ham', 'butter']))

attrs compatible

Using attrs for building commands/events is supported

import attr
from pybuses import CommandBus

class Example:
    number: int = attr.ib()
    name: str = attr.ib()

def example_handler(command: Example) -> None:
    print(f'Inside handler of {type(command)} - got {command}!')

command_bus = CommandBus()
command_bus.handle(Example(number=1, name='Sebastian'))
