Cent

Code Climate Build Status

Centrifugo HTTP API v2 client in Ruby.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'cent' 

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install cent

Usage

Functionality is split between two classes:

  • Cent::Client to call API methods
  • Cent::Notary to generate tokens

Token Generation

notary = Cent::Notary.new(secret: 'secret')

By default it uses HS256 to generate tokens, but you can set it to one of the HMAC, RSA or ECDSA family.

RSA

secret = OpenSSL::PKey::RSA.new(File.read('./rsa_secret.pem'))
notary = Cent::Notary.new(secret: secret, algorithm: 'RS256')

ECDSA

secret = OpenSSL::PKey::EC.new(File.read('./ecdsa_secret.pem'))
notary = Cent::Notary.new(secret: secret, algorithm: 'ES256')

Connection token

When connecting to Centrifugo client must provide connection JWT token with several predefined credential claims.

notary.issue_connection_token(sub: '42') 

#=> "eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9..."

info and exp are supported as well:

notary.issue_connection_token(sub: '42', info: { scope: 'admin' }, exp: 1629050099) 

#=> "eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9..."

Private channel token

All channels starting with $ considered private and require a channel token to subscribe. Private channel subscription token is also JWT(see the claims)

notary.issue_channel_token(client: 'client', channel: 'channel', exp: 1629050099, info: { scope: 'admin' }) 

#=> "eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9..."

API Client

A client requires your Centrifugo API key to execute all requests.

client = Cent::Client.new(api_key: 'key')

you can customize your connection as you wish, just remember it's a Faraday::Connection instance:

client = Cent::Client.new(api_key: 'key', endpoint: 'https://centrifu.go/api') do |connection|
  connection.headers['User-Agent'] = 'Centrifugo Ruby Client'
  connection.options.open_timeout = 3
  connection.options.timeout = 7
  connection.adapter :typhoeus
end

Publish

Send data to the channel.

https://centrifugal.github.io/centrifugo/server/http_api/#publish

client.publish(channel: 'chat', data: 'hello') # => {}

Broadcast

Sends data to multiple channels.

https://centrifugal.github.io/centrifugo/server/http_api/#broadcast

client.broadcast(channels: ["clients", "staff"], data: 'hello') # => {}

Unsubscribe

Unsubscribe user from channel. Receives to arguments: channel and user (user ID you want to unsubscribe)

https://centrifugal.github.io/centrifugo/server/http_api/#unsubscribe

client.unsubscribe(channel: 'chat', user: '1') # => {}

Disconnect

Allows to disconnect user by it's ID. Receives user ID as an argument.

https://centrifugal.github.io/centrifugo/server/http_api/#disconnect

# Disconnect user with `id = 1`
# 
client.disconnect(user: '1') # => {}

Presence

Get channel presence information(all clients currently subscribed on this channel).

https://centrifugal.github.io/centrifugo/server/http_api/#presence

client.presence(channel: 'chat') 

# {
#   'result' => {
#     'presence' => {
#       'c54313b2-0442-499a-a70c-051f8588020f' => {
#         'client' => 'c54313b2-0442-499a-a70c-051f8588020f',
#         'user' => '42'
#       },
#       'adad13b1-0442-499a-a70c-051f858802da' => {
#         'client' => 'adad13b1-0442-499a-a70c-051f858802da',
#         'user' => '42'
#       }
#     }
#   }
# }

Presence stats

Get short channel presence information.

https://centrifugal.github.io/centrifugo/server/http_api/#presence_stats

client.presence_stats(channel: 'chat')

# {
#   "result" => {
#     "num_clients" => 0,
#     "num_users" => 0
#   }
# }

History

Get channel history information (list of last messages published into channel).

https://centrifugal.github.io/centrifugo/server/http_api/#history

client.history(channel: 'chat') 

# {
#   'result' => {
#     'publications' => [
#       {
#         'data' => {
#           'text' => 'hello'
#         }
#       },
#       {
#         'data' => {
#           'text' => 'hi!'
#         }
#       }
#     ]
#   }
# }

Channels

Get list of active(with one or more subscribers) channels.

https://centrifugal.github.io/centrifugo/server/http_api/#channels

client.channels

# {
#   'result' => {
#     'channels' => [
#       'chat'
#     ]
#   }
# }

Info

Get running Centrifugo nodes information.

https://centrifugal.github.io/centrifugo/server/http_api/#info

client.info

# {
#   'result' => {
#     'nodes' => [
#       {
#         'name' => 'Alexanders-MacBook-Pro.local_8000',
#         'num_channels' => 0,
#         'num_clients' => 0,
#         'num_users' => 0,
#         'uid' => 'f844a2ed-5edf-4815-b83c-271974003db9',
#         'uptime' => 0,
#         'version' => ''
#       }
#     ]
#   }
# }

Errors

Network errors are not wrapped and will raise Faraday::ClientError.

In cases when Centrifugo returns 200 with error key in the body we wrap it and return custom error:

# Raised when response from Centrifugo contains any error as result of API command execution.
#
begin
  client.publish(channel: 'channel', data: { foo: :bar })
rescue Cent::ResponseError => ex
  ex.message # => "Invalid format"
end

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake spec to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
