NAME ^

IO::Storm - IO::Storm allows you to write Bolts and Spouts for Storm in Perl.

VERSION ^

version 0.15

SYNOPSIS ^

    package SplitSentenceBolt;

    use Moo;
    use namespace::clean;

    extends 'Storm::Bolt';

    sub process {
        my ($self, $tuple) = @_;

        my @words = split(' ', $tuple->values->[0]);
        foreach my $word (@words) {

            $self->emit([ $word ]);
        }

    }

    SplitSentenceBolt->new->run;

DESCRIPTION ^

IO::Storm allows you to leverage Storm's multilang support to write Bolts and Spouts in Perl. As of version 0.02, the API is designed to very closely mirror that of the Streamparse Python library. The exception being that we don't currently support the BatchingBolt class or the emit_many methods.

Bolts ^

To create a Bolt, you want to extend the Storm::Bolt class.

    package SplitSentenceBolt;

    use Moo;
    use namespace::clean;

    extends 'Storm::Bolt';

Processing tuples

To have your Bolt start processing tuples, you want to override the process method, which takes a IO::Storm::Tuple as its only argument. This method should do any processing you want to perform on the tuple and then emit its output.

    sub process {
        my ($self, $tuple) = @_;

        my @words = split(' ', $tuple->values->[0]);
        foreach my $word (@words) {

            $self->emit([ $word ]);
        }

    }

To actually start your Bolt, call the run method, which will initialize the bolt and start the event loop.

    SplitSentenceBolt->new->run;

Automatic reliability

By default, the Bolt will automatically handle acks, anchoring, and failures. If you would like to customize the behavior of any of these things, you will need to set the auto_anchor, auto_anchor, or auto_fail attributes to 0. For more information about Storm's guaranteed message processing, please see their documentation.

Spouts ^

To create a Spout, you want to extend the Storm::Spout class.

    package SentenceSpout;

    use Moo;
    use namespace::clean;

    extends 'Storm::Spout';

Emitting tuples

To actually emit anything on your Spout, you have to implement the next_tuple method.

    my $sentences = ["a little brown dog",
                     "the man petted the dog",
                     "four score and seven years ago",
                     "an apple a day keeps the doctor away",];
    my $num_sentences = scalar(@$sentences);

    sub next_tuple {
        my ($self) = @_;

        $self->emit( [ $sentences->[ rand($num_sentences) ] ] );

    }

To actually start your Spout, call the run method, which will initialize the Spout and start the event loop.

    SentenceSpout->new->run;

Methods supported by Spouts and Bolts ^

Custom initialization

If you need to have some custom action happen when your component is being initialized, just override initialize method, which receives the Storm configuration for the component and information about its place in the topology as its arguments.

    sub initialize {
        my ( $self, $storm_conf, $context ) = @_;
    }

Logging

Use the log method to send messages back to the Storm ShellBolt parent process which will be added to the general Storm log.

    sub process {
        my ($self, $tuple) = @_;
        ...
        $self->log("Working on $tuple");
        ...
    }
