NAME

Message::Passing::DSL - An easy way to make chains of Message::Passing components.

SYNOPSIS

    package mylogcollectorscript;
    use Moo;
    use MooX::Options;
    use Message::Passing::DSL;
    use MooX::Types::MooseLike::Base qw/ Str /;
    use namespace::clean -except => [qw( meta _options_data _options_config )];

    with 'Message::Passing::Role::Script';

    option socket_bind => (
        is => 'ro',
        isa => Str,
        default => sub { 'tcp://*:5558' },
    );

    sub build_chain {
        my $self = shift;
        message_chain {
            output console => (
                class => 'STDOUT',
            );
            input zmq => (
                class => 'ZeroMQ',
                output_to => 'console',
                socket_bind => $self->socket_bind,
            );
        };
    }

DESCRIPTION

This module provides a simple to use helper system for writing scripts which implement a Message::Passing server, like the built in message-pass script.

Rather than having to pass instances of an output to each input in the output_to attribute, and full class names, you can use short names for component classes, and strings for the output_to attribute, the DSL resolves these and deals with instance construction for you.

See example in the SYNOPSIS, and details for the exported sugar functions below.

FUNCTIONS

message_chain

Constructs a message chain (i.e. a series of Message::Passing objects feeding into each other), warns about any unused parts of the chain, and returns an array ref to the heads of the chain (i.e. the input class(es)).

Maintains a registry / factory for the log classes, which is used to allow the resolving of symbolic names in the output_to key to function.

output

Constructs a named output within a chain.

    message_chain {
        output foo => ( class => 'STDOUT' );
        ....
    };

Class names will be assumed to prefixed with 'Message::Passing::Output::', unless you prefix the class with + e.g. +My::Own::Output::Class

encoder

Constructs a named encoder within a chain.

    message_chain {
        encoder fooenc => ( output_to => 'out', class => 'JSON' );
        ....
    };

Class names will be assumed to prefixed with 'Message::Passing::Filter::Encoder::', unless you prefix the class with + e.g. +My::Own::Encoder::Class

filter

Constructs a named filter (which can act as both an output and an input) within a chain.

    message_chain {
        ...
        filter bar => ( output_to => 'fooenc', class => 'Null' );
        ...
    };

Class names will be assumed to prefixed with 'Message::Passing::Filter::', unless you prefix the class with + e.g. +My::Own::Filter::Class

decoder

Constructs a named decoder within a chain.

    message_chain {
        decoder zmq_decode => ( output_to => 'filter', class => 'JSON' );
        ....
    };

Class names will be assumed to prefixed with 'Message::Passing::Filter::Decoder::', unless you prefix the class with + e.g. +My::Own::Encoder::Class

input

The last thing in a chain - produces data which gets consumed.

    message_chain {
        ...
        input zmq => ( output_to => 'zmq_decode', class => 'ZeroMQ', bind => '...' );
        ....
    }

Class names will be assumed to prefixed with 'Message::Passing::Output::', unless you prefix the class with + e.g. +My::Own::Output::Class

error_log

Setup the error logging output. Takes the same arguments as an input xxx => () block, except without a name.

run_message_server

This enters the event loop and causes log events to be consumed and processed.

Can be passed a message_chain to run, although this is entirely optional (as all chains which are still in scope will run when the event loop is entered).
