cl-rabbit - Common Lisp interface to RabbitMQ

Author: Elias Mårtenson,

This library is a CFFI-based interface to the RabbitMQ client libraries with an interface that is designed to be fairly close to the native C API.

The easiest way to install this library is to download it using Quicklisp:

(ql:quickload :cl-rabbit)

Please look at the file examples.lisp for a simple example of using the library.

Please note that the underlying C API is still in beta, which means that the API itself sometimes undergoes breaking changes. This project attempts to work around this as well as possible, but there may be cases where there are incompatibilities. Please let me know if any problems are seen.
