Documentation

A RabbitMQ consumer plugin for the helga chat bot

About

Helga is a Python chat bot. Full documentation can be found at http://helga.readthedocs.org.

This plugin is meant to be a simple interface for other plugins, sending message bus events via smokesignal so that they can be consumed.

There is currently no command, just enough to connect to a remote RabbitMQ instance and setup channels to listen on specific routing keys.

Installation

This plugin is available from PyPI, so you can simply install it with pip:

pip install helga-pika

If you want to hack on the helga-pika source code, in your virtualenv where you are running Helga, clone a copy of this repository from GitHub and run python setup.py develop.

Configuration

In your settings.py file (or whatever you pass to helga --settings), you must the following required keys:

RABBITMQ_USER = "user"
RABBITMQ_PASSWORD= "secret"
RABBITMQ_HOST = "localhost"
RABBITMQ_EXCHANGE= "exchange"

The port is entirely optional, defaulting to 5672:

RABBITMQ_PORT = 5672

Optionally, the interesting routing keys must be set, so that the queues can be correctly setup for listening:

RABBITMQ_ROUTING_KEYS = [
    "ceph-volume.prs",
    "ceph-volume.builds",
    "ceph-volume.repos",
    "ceph.prs",
    "ceph.builds",
    "ceph.repos",
]
