NAME

Jifty::Event - Event objects for publish/subscribe communication

DESCRIPTION

An event object from the Jifty::PubSub stream.

METHODS

new($payload)

Constructor. Takes any kind of payload and blesses a scalar reference to it into an Event object.

publish()

Inserts the event into the pubsub stream. If Jifty is configured into synchronous republishing, then this method runs a republish on itself with all current subscriptions implicitly. If not, it's simply inserted into its main channel for asynchronous republishing later.

filter(@query)

Takes multiple class-specific queries, which are evaluated in order by calling "match".

republish(@query)

Run filter with the queries; if they all succeed, the event is republished into that query-specific channel.

encode_queries(@query)

Encode queries into some sort of canonical MD5 encoding.

match($query)

Takes a class-specific query and returns whether it matches.

You almost always want to override this; the default implementation simply always return true;

render_arguments()

A list of additional things to push into the %ARGS of the region that is about to render this event; see Jifty::Subs::Render for more information.

data()

This event's payload as a scalar value.
