File-system Transport - kombu.transport.filesystem

File-system Transport module for kombu.

Transport using the file-system as the message store. Messages written to the queue are stored in data_folder_in directory and messages read from the queue are read from data_folder_out directory. Both directories must be created manually. Simple example:

  • Producer:

import kombu

conn = kombu.Connection(
    'filesystem://', transport_options={
        'data_folder_in': 'data_in', 'data_folder_out': 'data_out'
    }
)
conn.connect()

test_queue = kombu.Queue('test', routing_key='test')

with conn as conn:
    with conn.default_channel as channel:
        producer = kombu.Producer(channel)
        producer.publish(
                    {'hello': 'world'},
                    retry=True,
                    exchange=test_queue.exchange,
                    routing_key=test_queue.routing_key,
                    declare=[test_queue],
                    serializer='pickle'
        )
  • Consumer:

import kombu

conn = kombu.Connection(
    'filesystem://', transport_options={
        'data_folder_in': 'data_out', 'data_folder_out': 'data_in'
    }
)
conn.connect()

def callback(body, message):
    print(body, message)
    message.ack()

test_queue = kombu.Queue('test', routing_key='test')

with conn as conn:
    with conn.default_channel as channel:
        consumer = kombu.Consumer(
            conn, [test_queue], accept=['pickle']
        )
        consumer.register_callback(callback)
        with consumer:
            conn.drain_events(timeout=1)
