GoDoc Build Status Coverage Status Go Report Card GitHub license

Bus is a minimalist event/message bus implementation for internal communication. It is heavily inspired from my event_bus package for Elixir language.

API

The method names and arities/args are stable now. No change should be expected on the package for the version 1.x.x except any bug fixes.

Installation

Via go packages: go get github.com/mustafaturan/bus

Usage

Configure

The package requires a unique id generator to assign ids to events. You can write your own function to generate unique ids or use a package that provides unique id generation functionality.

The bus package respect to software design choice of the packages/projects. It supports both singleton and dependency injection to init a bus instance.

Hint: Check the demo project for the singleton configuration.

Here is a sample initilization using monoton id generator:

import (
    "github.com/mustafaturan/bus"
    "github.com/mustafaturan/monoton"
    "github.com/mustafaturan/monoton/sequencer"
)

func NewBus() *bus.Bus {
    // configure id generator (it doesn't have to be monoton)
    node        := uint64(1)
    initialTime := uint64(1577865600000) // set 2020-01-01 PST as initial time
    m, err := monoton.New(sequencer.NewMillisecond(), node, initialTime)
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }

    // init an id generator
    var idGenerator bus.Next = (*m).Next

    // create a new bus instance
    b, err := bus.NewBus(idGenerator)
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }

    // maybe register topics in here
    b.RegisterTopics("order.received", "order.fulfilled")

    return b
}

Register Event Topics

To emit events to the topics, topic names need to be registered first:

// register topics
b.RegisterTopics("order.received", "order.fulfilled")

Register Event Handlers

To receive topic events you need to register handlers; A handler basically requires two vals which are a Handle function and topic Matcher regex pattern.

handler := bus.Handler{
    Handle: func(e *bus.Event) {
        // do something
        // NOTE: Highly recommended to process the event in an async way
    },
    Matcher: ".*", // matches all topics
}
b.RegisterHandler("a unique key for the handler", &handler)

Emit Events

// if txID val is blank, bus package generates one using the id generator
ctx := context.Background()
ctx = context.WithValue(ctx, bus.CtxKeyTxID, "some-transaction-id-if-exists")

// event topic name (must be registered before)
topic := "order.received"

// interface{} data for event
order := make(map[string]string)
order["orderID"]     = "123456"
order["orderAmount"] = "112.20"
order["currency"]    = "USD"

// emit the event
event, err := b.Emit(ctx, topic, order)

if err != nil {
    // report the err
    fmt.Println(err)
}

// if the caller needs the event, a ref for the event is returning as result of
// the `Emit` call.
fmt.Println(event)

Processing Events

When an event is emitted, the topic handlers receive the event synchronously. It is highly recommended to process events asynchronous. Package leave the decision to the packages/projects to use concurrency abstractions depending on use-cases. Each handlers receive the same event as ref of bus.Event struct:

// Event data structure
type Event struct {
    ID         string      // identifier
    TxID       string      // transaction identifier
    Topic      string      // topic name
    Data       interface{} // actual event data
    OccurredAt int64       // creation time in nanoseconds
}

Sample Project

A demo project with three consumers which increments a counter for each event topic, printer consumer which prints all events and lastly calculator consumer which sums amounts.
