An implementation of the RestMS message broker protocol for message oriented middleware on the Python Django Web Framework.

Ahkera is a rapid prototyping implementation of the RestMS protocol. RestMS defines RESTful operations on AMQP resource types, dropping AMQPs wire format in favor of HTTP. AMQP itself is a message routing protocol for message oriented middleware (or message broker) used in e.g. service oriented architecture implementations.

Development on Ahkera just started. You are invited to participate - check out
