import "github.com/mustafaturan/bus"

Package bus is a minimalist event/message bus implementation for internal communication


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. Here is a sample configuration using `monoton` id generator:

Example code for configuration:

import (

func init() {
	// configure id generator (it doesn't have to be monoton)
	node        := uint(1)
	initialTime := uint(0)
	monoton.Configure(sequencer.NewMillisecond(), node, initialTime)

	// configure bus
	if err := bus.Configure(bus.Config{Next: monoton.Next}); err != nil {
	// ...

Register Topics

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

Example code:

func init() {
	// ...
	// register topics
	bus.RegisterTopics("order.received", "order.fulfilled")
	// ...

Register 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.

Example code:

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

Emit Event

Example code:

txID  := "some-transaction-id-if-exists" // if it is blank, package will generate one
topic := "order.received" // event topic name (must be registered before)
order := make(map[string]string) // interface{} data for the event

order["orderID"]     = "123456"
order["orderAmount"] = "112.20"
order["currency"]    = "USD"

// emit the event for the topic with the transaction id
bus.Emit(topic, order, txID)

Processing Events

When an event is emitted, the topic handlers will receive events 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.
