CL-EVENTS Build Status Coverage Status

Composable events system for Common Lisp

Wut

CL-EVENTS sees event as an entity that implements the following APIs:

  • add-event-handler
  • remove-event-handler
  • sink-handlers-list
  • invoke-executor
  • invoke-event-handlers

This was futher re-grouped as - Sinks (add-event-handler, remove-event-handler, sink-handlers-list) - Executors (invoke-executor) - Events (invoke-event-handlers)

CL-EVENTS implements the following SINK types:

  • single-thread-think - add/remove/list operations must be performed in single thread OR synchronized manually
  • multi-thread-think - add/remove/list operations synchronized for you. On available platforms CAS is used.

and EXECUTOR types:

  • serial-executor - consecutively executes handlers returned by event-handlers-list. The next handler executed only after previous one returned
  • chained-executor - emulates serial-executor for non-blocking word. It assumes you are using blackbird as promises implementation. The next handler executed only after promise returned by previous one is resolved.
  • threaded-executor - each handler executed in its own newly-created thread.
  • pooled-executor - handlers executed in lparallel pool. Note: if*thread-pool* is nil new lparallel kernel of size 5 will be automatically created.

CL-EVENTS also exports number of predefined event types: - event (multi-thread-sink serial-executor) - simple-event (single-thread-sink serial-executor) - non-blocking-event (single-thread-sink chained-executor) - broadcast-event (multi-thread-sink pooled-executor)

Usually you just need to define your custom sink/executor types and compose events. For further customizations invoke-event-handlers can be used to select executor at runtime for example,

(defparameter *event-executor* nil)

(defclass bunny-event (multi-thread-sink pooled-executor)
  ())

(defmethod invoke-event-handlers ((event bunny-event) &rest args)
  (if *event-executor*
      (invoke-executor *event-executor* event args)
      (call-next-method)))

Example

;; broadcast-event
;; handlers can be added/removed from many threads
;; and will be executed in lparallel pool

(ql:quickload :cl-events)

(in-package :cl-events)

(defun make-broadcast-event ()
  (make-instance 'broadcast-event))

;; use event type

(defclass channel ()
  ((name :accessor channel-name)
   (state :initform :closed
          :accessor :channel-state)
   ;; events
   (on-message :initform (make-broadcast-event)
               :reader channel-on-message)
   (on-close :initform (make-broadcast-event)
             :reader channel-on-close)))

(defparameter *channel* (make-instance 'channel))

;; subscribe

(event+ (channel-on-message *channel*)
        (lambda (message)
          (format t "Received: ~a" message)))

(event+ (channel-on-close *channel*)
        (lambda (channel)
          (format t "Closed: ~a" channel)))

;; fire

(event! (channel-on-message *channel*) "Hello from cl-events")

#|Received: Hello from cl-events|#

(event! (channel-on-close *channel*) *channel*)

#|Closed: #<CHANNEL {1003D06703}>|#
