hgsqs 0.9.0

Mercurial to SQS hook

hgsqs provides a simple hook to send changeset information to SQS queues. This could be useful if you want to collect information from mercurial commits or integrate with other systems. It’s perfect if you’re running on AWS and are too lazy to setup a real queue system or maybe you’re just in the middle of a message queuing obsession.


  • Python 2.7+
  • boto


Use or just pip:

pip install hgsqs


Put that in the .hg/hgrc of your project:

incoming.hgsqs = python:hgsqs:send

aws_access_key_id = FILL-IN
aws_secret_access_key = THE-BLANKS
queues = commit-analytics,irc-notifications,ticket-system
Then make sure your IAM user has the right permissions on these tables:
  • CreateQueue
  • GetQueueUrl
  • SendMessage
