A Seneca.js AMQP-ready thin wrapper.


Small module that helps create a pre-configured seneca ( instance that uses AMQP as its transport layer and eases declaration of clients and listeners.

npm install --save seneca-amqp


You use this module as a direct replacement for seneca, which is declared in peerDependencies (so you can install the version you need). The returned instance uses seneca-amqp-transport and has a .start function that'll declare listeners and clients for you (no need to call .listen or .client).

var config = {
   seneca: {
     // Any global seneca option
    timeout: 3000
   amqp: {
    // Broker connection settings
    hostname: '',
    port: 5672,
    username: 'guest',
    password: 'guest'
   pins: {
    // Pins used in .client and .listen methods
    client: 'role:entity,cmd:save',
    listen: ['level:info', 'cmd:rollback,proc:status']
  autoStart: false

var seneca = require('seneca-amqp')(config);
  .then(() => console.log('Seneca is ready'))

Additional features

The seneca instance created by this module,

  • Uses seneca-amqp-transport as its transport layer. There's no need to declare it as en explicit dependency: this module will do that for you.
  • Simplifies configuration of the AMQP broker and declaration of client/listeners to a minimum.
  • Defines a new seneca.actAsync method that behaves like a promisified seneca.act.

In previous versions this was named seneca.pact. That is now deprecated. Please, use seneca.actAsync instead.

  • Adds a new seneca.start method that returns a promise that fulfills when all clients and listeners have been declared and fired up.
  • Disables 'mem-store' by default. It is assumed that stores are listeners in remote microservice wired up in an AMQP fashion.

If you need to enable it back, you can pass { seneca: { default_plugins: { 'mem-store': true } } to the configuration object.
