$ npm install --save hydra-event-bus-plugin


Setup .use(new EventBusPlugin()) in your service to register the plugin, then you can use hydra.eventBus to access the plugin

'use strict';

const version = require('./package.json').version;
const hydra = require('hydra');
let config = require('fwsp-config');

const HydraLogger = require('fwsp-logger').HydraLogger;
const EventBusPlugin = require('hydra-event-bus-plugin');
hydra.use(new HydraLogger());
hydra.use(new EventBusPlugin());

const Promise = require('bluebird');

  .then(() => {
    config.version = version;
    config.hydra.serviceVersion = version;
    * Initialize hydra
    return hydra.init(config);
  .then(() => hydra.registerService())
  .then(serviceInfo => {
    let logEntry = `Starting ${config.hydra.serviceName} (v.${config.version})`;
    hydra.sendToHealthLog('info', logEntry);

    // Register to event bus
    hydra.eventBus.on('profile:.*', (eventName, payload, umf) => {
      console.log(`Receive message for ${eventName} with payload: ${JSON.stringify(payload)}`)
    // Emit to event bus
    hydra.eventBus.emit('profile:register', {author: 'Khoi Nguyen', repos: ['hydra-event-bus-service', 'hydra-event-bus-plugin']});
  .catch(err => {
    console.log('Error initializing hydra', err);
