Question - nameko with alternative Kombu transports (Redis)

Hey guys – just wondering if you’ve heard of any nameko use with Kombu transports other than RabbitMQ/AMQP, and specifically Redis.

Presumably(!) leaning on Kombu means things should be transport agnostic, but would be great to hear if anyone has had success in production.

Hey Shaun,

It’s very unlikely this would work. We used Kombu because it seemed like the best AMQP library at the time, rather than to be transport agnostic. We rely on certain bits of AMQP and even make use of certain RabbitMQ extensions to the spec.

One of my longstanding desires is actually to remove kombu for one of the newer AMQP libs, so we can support things like publisher heartbeats.
