Hutch vs ZeroMQ: What are the differences?
What is Hutch? Inter-Service Communication with RabbitMQ. Hutch is a Ruby library for enabling asynchronous inter-service communication in a service-oriented architecture, using RabbitMQ.
What is ZeroMQ? Fast, lightweight messaging library that allows you to design complex communication system without much effort. The 0MQ lightweight messaging kernel is a library which extends the standard socket interfaces with features traditionally provided by specialised messaging middleware products. 0MQ sockets provide an abstraction of asynchronous message queues, multiple messaging patterns, message filtering (subscriptions), seamless access to multiple transport protocols and more.
Hutch and ZeroMQ can be primarily classified as "Message Queue" tools.
Some of the features offered by Hutch are:
- A simple way to define consumers (queues are automatically created and bound to the exchange with the appropriate binding keys)
- An executable and CLI for running consumers (akin to rake resque:work)
- Automatic setup of the central exchange
On the other hand, ZeroMQ provides the following key features:
- Connect your code in any language, on any platform.
- Carries messages across inproc, IPC, TCP, TPIC, multicast.
- Smart patterns like pub-sub, push-pull, and router-dealer.
Hutch and ZeroMQ are both open source tools. It seems that ZeroMQ with 5.33K GitHub stars and 1.57K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Hutch with 712 GitHub stars and 103 GitHub forks.
