Go Report Card Coverage Status Build Status GoDoc MIT licensed is an AMQP 1.0 client implementation for Go.

AMQP 1.0 is not compatible with AMQP 0-9-1 or 0-10, which are the most common AMQP protocols in use today. A list of AMQP 1.0 brokers and other AMQP 1.0 resources can be found at

This library aims to be stable and worthy of production usage, but the API is still subject to change. To conform with SemVer, the major version will remain 0 until the API is deemed stable. During this period breaking changes will be indicated by bumping the minor version. Non-breaking changes will bump the patch version.

Example Usage

package main

import (


func main() {
	// Create client
	client, err := amqp.Dial("amqps://",
		amqp.ConnSASLPlain("access-key-name", "access-key"),
	if err != nil {
		log.Fatal("Dialing AMQP server:", err)
	defer client.Close()

	// Open a session
	session, err := client.NewSession()
	if err != nil {
		log.Fatal("Creating AMQP session:", err)

	ctx := context.Background()

	// Send a message
		// Create a sender
		sender, err := session.NewSender(
		if err != nil {
			log.Fatal("Creating sender link:", err)

		ctx, cancel := context.WithTimeout(ctx, 5*time.Second)

		// Send message
		err = sender.Send(ctx, amqp.NewMessage([]byte("Hello!")))
		if err != nil {
			log.Fatal("Sending message:", err)


	// Continuously read messages
		// Create a receiver
		receiver, err := session.NewReceiver(
		if err != nil {
			log.Fatal("Creating receiver link:", err)
		defer func() {
			ctx, cancel := context.WithTimeout(ctx, 1*time.Second)

		for {
			// Receive next message
			msg, err := receiver.Receive(ctx)
			if err != nil {
				log.Fatal("Reading message from AMQP:", err)

			// Accept message

			fmt.Printf("Message received: %s\n", msg.GetData())

Other Notes

By default, this package depends only on the standard library. Building with the pkgerrors tag will cause errors to be created/wrapped by the library. This can be useful for debugging and when used in a project using
