rufus-sqs

getting it

sudo gem install -y rufus-sqs

or at

rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=4812

usage

At first, ‘rufus-sqs’ expects to find the Amazon WebServices keys in four environment variables : AMAZON_KEY_ID, AMAZON_ACCESS_KEY_ID, AMAZON_ACCESS_KEY and AMAZON_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY

(Like the gem “aws-s3” amazon.rubyforge.org/ does).

For example, I store them in a file named .amazon that gets loaded when necessary :

export AMAZON_KEY_ID=171A375Y3DY838652G2
export AMAZON_ACCESS_KEY_ID=17r37R45YZDY252G2

export AMAZON_ACCESS_KEY=iOML8QLPy5DB5sCUoS0LbJcA2/OChUUNky
export AMAZON_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=ibMU8QfPDB5sCUgS0NLbScA2/OChUHNy

Some example code :

qs = Rufus::SQS::QueueService.new

qs.create_queue "mytestqueue"

msg = "hello SQS world !"

msg_id = qs.put_message "mytestqueue", msg

put msg_id
    # will print something like
    # 0MQFS772Z73BG5R9QD6V|A717CAQHX0CS7N69WY71|M57DGQ7TB7T3MFY3J1X0

sleep 1

msgs = qs.get_messages "mytestqueue"

puts msgs[0].message_body
    # => 'hello SQS world !"

qs.delete_queue "mytestqueue"
