NAME

Mojo::Pg::PubSub - Publish/Subscribe

SYNOPSIS

use Mojo::Pg::PubSub;

my $pubsub = Mojo::Pg::PubSub->new(pg => $pg);
my $cb = $pubsub->listen(foo => sub {
  my ($pubsub, $payload) = @_;
  say "Received: $payload";
});
$pubsub->notify(foo => 'I ♥ Mojolicious!');
$pubsub->unlisten(foo => $cb);

DESCRIPTION

Mojo::Pg::PubSub is a scalable implementation of the publish/subscribe pattern used by Mojo::Pg. It is based on PostgreSQL notifications and allows many consumers to share the same database connection, to avoid many common scalability problems.

EVENTS

Mojo::Pg::PubSub inherits all events from Mojo::EventEmitter and can emit the following new ones.

disconnect

$pubsub->on(disconnect => sub {
  my ($pubsub, $db) = @_;
  ...
});

Emitted after the current database connection is lost.

reconnect

$pubsub->on(reconnect => sub {
  my ($pubsub, $db) = @_;
  ...
});

Emitted after switching to a new database connection for sending and receiving notifications.

ATTRIBUTES

Mojo::Pg::PubSub implements the following attributes.

pg

my $pg  = $pubsub->pg;
$pubsub = $pubsub->pg(Mojo::Pg->new);

Mojo::Pg object this publish/subscribe container belongs to. Note that this attribute is weakened.

reconnect_interval

my $interval = $pubsub->reconnect_interval;
$pubsub      = $pubsub->reconnect_interval(0.1);

Amount of time in seconds to wait to reconnect after disconnecting, defaults to 1.

METHODS

Mojo::Pg::PubSub inherits all methods from Mojo::EventEmitter and implements the following new ones.

db

my $db = $pubsub->db;

Build and cache or get cached Mojo::Pg::Database connection from "pg". Used to reconnect if disconnected.

# Reconnect immediately
$pubsub->unsubscribe('disconnect')->on(disconnect => sub { shift->db });

json

$pubsub = $pubsub->json('foo');

Activate automatic JSON encoding and decoding with "to_json" in Mojo::JSON and "from_json" in Mojo::JSON for a channel.

# Send and receive data structures
$pubsub->json('foo')->listen(foo => sub {
  my ($pubsub, $payload) = @_;
  say $payload->{bar};
});
$pubsub->notify(foo => {bar => 'I ♥ Mojolicious!'});

listen

my $cb = $pubsub->listen(foo => sub {...});

Subscribe to a channel, there is no limit on how many subscribers a channel can have. Automatic decoding of JSON text to Perl values can be activated with "json".

# Subscribe to the same channel twice
$pubsub->listen(foo => sub {
  my ($pubsub, $payload) = @_;
  say "One: $payload";
});
$pubsub->listen(foo => sub {
  my ($pubsub, $payload) = @_;
  say "Two: $payload";
});

new

my $pubsub = Mojo::Pg::PubSub->new;
my $pubsub = Mojo::Pg::PubSub->new(pg => Mojo::Pg->new);
my $pubsub = Mojo::Pg::PubSub->new({pg => Mojo::Pg->new});

Construct a new Mojo::Pg::PubSub object and subscribe to the "disconnect" event with default reconnect logic.

notify

$pubsub = $pubsub->notify('foo');
$pubsub = $pubsub->notify(foo => 'I ♥ Mojolicious!');
$pubsub = $pubsub->notify(foo => {bar => 'baz'});

Notify a channel. Automatic encoding of Perl values to JSON text can be activated with "json".

reset

$pubsub->reset;

Reset all subscriptions and the database connection. This is usually done after a new process has been forked, to prevent the child process from stealing notifications meant for the parent process.

unlisten

$pubsub = $pubsub->unlisten('foo');
$pubsub = $pubsub->unlisten(foo => $cb);

Unsubscribe from a channel.
