A supernova is a powerful and luminous stellar explosion. This transient astronomical event occurs during the last evolutionary stages of a massive star or when a white dwarf is triggered into runaway nuclear fusion. The original object, called the progenitor, either collapses to a neutron star or black hole, or is completely destroyed. The peak optical luminosity of a supernova can be comparable to that of an entire galaxy before fading over several weeks or months.


Quick Start

The example located in test/Main.hs showcases a consumer & producer running concurrently (needs the async library).

main :: IO ()
main = runPulsar conn $ do
  c <- newConsumer topic sub
  p <- newProducer topic
  liftIO $ program c p

conn :: PulsarConnection
conn = connect defaultConnectData

topic :: Topic
topic = defaultTopic "app"

sub :: Subscription
sub = Subscription Exclusive "test-sub"

program :: Consumer IO -> Producer IO -> IO ()
program Consumer {..} Producer {..} =
  let c = fetch >>= \(Message i m) -> msgDecoder m >> ack i >> c
      p = sleep 3 >> traverse_ send messages >> p
  in  concurrently_ c p

A Message contains a MessageID you need for acking and a payload defined as a lazy ByteString.

Note that we wait a few seconds before publishing a message to make sure the consumer is already subscribed. Otherwise, it might miss some messages.

Run it with the following command:

cabal new-run supernova-tests

By default, it logs to the standard output in DEBUG level. You can change it by suppling LogOptions to the alternative function runPulsar'.

runPulsar' :: LogOptions -> PulsarConnection -> Pulsar a -> IO ()


Since both consumers and producers operate on any MonadIO m, we could leverage some streaming libraries. Here's the same example using streamly.

import           Streamly
import qualified Streamly.Prelude              as S

program :: Consumer IO -> Producer IO -> IO ()
program Consumer {..} Producer {..} =
  let c = fetch >>= \(Message i m) -> msgDecoder m >> ack i >> c
      p = sleep 3 >> traverse_ send messages >> p
  in  S.drain . asyncly . maxThreads 10 $ S.yieldM c <> S.yieldM p


It is recommended to use Cachix to reduce the compilation time.


Or within a Nix shell (run nix-shell at the project's root).
