Message Channel Interface
(TODO) Work in progress
The message channel can be any messaging middleware that can spread data. There are many systems that can do this. A minimal set for the MVP of STACKL are Redis and either RabbitMQ or Kafka.
The message channel has to be able to provide messages to workers and process them transparently:
- Temporarily store messages
- Push/Pop system
- Process the communicated data so that the input and output are json files
Redis provides a simple in-memory datastore/message queue that allows publish/subscribe communications as well as pushing/popping messages.
