What is amq-protocol.
amq-protocol is an AMQP 0.9.1 serialization library for Ruby. It is not an AMQP client: amq-protocol only handles serialization and deserialization.
If you want to write your own AMQP client, this gem will handle all the serialization needs for you, including RabbitMQ extensions to AMQP 0.9.1.
gem install amq-protocol
Make sure you have Python, pip and the mako templating package installed:
pip install mako
amq-protocol uses RabbitMQ protocol code generation library that is in Python, so there is some Python involved in the build.

codegen/* files), run
To make changes, do not edit client.rb directly. Instead, edit the

To run tests, use
bundle install --binstubs ./bin/rspec -c spec spec
