T3 Events

In t3-core, we’ve a sub-module which is an event queue system used to connect microservices together, in an asynchronous manner, with built-in fault tolerance. It uses RabbitMQ as a messaging bus to accomplish this. Event queue system consists of 2 main parts, consumer, and publisher.

A Consumer, as the name suggests, consumes the messages, by invoking a callback upon receiving the specified message, which is published by the Publisher. Separately running processes, commonly known as workers can consume messages, whereas, any process including web process can publish messages. If any process is unable to finish consuming the message, it gets requed in the system and is sent to a different consumer or stored until the consumer is available again.

In T3 Events. T3 Events, is configured by setting up 2 key environment variables, T3_EVENTS, and T3_EVENTS_AMQP_URL, the first one is a boolean value of true or false on whether to use events or not, and the second one is a connection string for rabbit-mq. This env vars can be inserted into any system, and as long as different systems have same value for those env vars, they are part of the same message queue system. There are two main types of consumers and publishers, details below:


Task consumer/publisher are dedicated to consuming or publishing Tasks, which by definition are consumed one at a time, for a given task, which means, the first available consumer will pick up the task and process it, then the next task in the list will go to the next available consumer, and so on. Below is an example of a sample task.


from imoprt TaskConsumer

def message_callback(payload):
    print(f'message callback task consumer: payload: {payload}')

# Start consumer
test = TaskConsumer()


from import TaskPublisher

# Use publisher
test = TaskPublisher()
test.set_message('test message, could be in json too')

For the above example, the given example task name is test_task, which is the same for a consumer and a publisher, which connects them together. Since this is a TaskConsumer, and a TaskPublisher, if you run more than 1 Consumer, and Publish several times, it’ll be processed in a round-robin manner with the running Consumers, one at a time. Once 1 message is processed, then the system moves on to the next one, and so on.


Topic consumer/publisher are dedicated to consuming or publishing Topics, which by definition are broadcasted to all subscribed Consumers, for a given Topic, which means, when a topic is published, all consumers signed up for this topic will receive the message. Below is an example of a sample topic.


from import TopicConsumer

def message_callback(payload):
    print(f'message callback topic consumer: payload: {payload}')

# Start consumer
test = TopicConsumer()


from import TopicPublisher
import json

# Use publisher
test = TopicPublisher()
test.set_message(json.dumps({'json': 'object'}))

For the above example, the given topic name is test_topic, which is the same for a consumer and a publisher, which connects them together. Since this is a TopicConsumer, and a TopicPublisher, if you run more than 1 Consumer, and Publish, it’ll be processed by all running Consumers, at once.

Running T3 Events

T3 events is composed of Consumers, and Publishers.

Consumers must be run in a separate process, as they are independent of anything else that is going on in the system, for local development, you can run python, however in production environments, use nohup python, for fault tolerance purposes.

Pubishers on the other hand, can be run as part of a process, as their main job is to publish an event to the message queue system. To use a Publisher, you can run the lines below # Use publisher from the above examples, provided the 2 required environment variables are present.
