kumo.amqp.build_client(URI)

Constructs an AMQP client object.

URI is the URI that references the AMQP server to which you want to connect.

local client = kumo.amqp.build_client 'amqp://localhost'
local confirm = client:publish {
  routing_key = 'hello',
  payload = 'w00t!',
}
local result = confirm:wait()
assert(result.status == 'NotRequested')

Client Methods

The returned client object has the following methods:

client:publish({PARAMS})

Publishes a message. PARAMS is an object style table with the following keys:

  • routing_key - required string; the name of the queue to which to send the message
  • payload - required string; the message to send
  • exchange - optional string; the exchange through which to send the message. If unspecified, the empty string is used, which corresponds to a default exchange.

Returns a confirmation object that can be used to await the final disposition of the send. That confirmation object has a single wait method which returns a confirmation object with the following fields:

  • status - one of "NotRequested", "Ack", or "Nack" depending on the disposition of the message delivery attempt.
  • reply_code - may be nil, but is otherwise a status code from the ack returned from the queue machinery.
  • reply_text - may be nil, but is otherwise status text from the ack returned from the queue machinery.
