akka akka-streams custom shapes TwoThreeShape


Example

a simple example of how to define a custom shape with 2 inlets and 3 outlets.

case class TwoThreeShape[-In1, -In2, +Out1, +Out2, +Out3](
          in1: Inlet[In1@uncheckedVariance],
          in2: Inlet[In2@uncheckedVariance],
          out1: Outlet[Out1@uncheckedVariance],
          out2: Outlet[Out2@uncheckedVariance],
          out3: Outlet[Out3@uncheckedVariance]) extends Shape {

  override val inlets: immutable.Seq[Inlet[_]] = List(in1, in2)
  override val outlets: immutable.Seq[Outlet[_]] = List(out1, out2, out3)

  override def deepCopy(): TwoThreeShape[In1, In2, Out1, Out2, Out3] =
    TwoThreeShape(in1.carbonCopy(), 
                  in2.carbonCopy(), 
                  out1.carbonCopy(), 
                  out2.carbonCopy(), 
                  out3.carbonCopy())

  override def copyFromPorts(inlets: immutable.Seq[Inlet[_]], outlets: immutable.Seq[Outlet[_]]): Shape = {
    require(inlets.size == 2, s"proposed inlets [${inlets.mkString(", ")}] do not fit TwoThreeShape")
    require(outlets.size == 3, s"proposed outlets [${outlets.mkString(", ")}] do not fit TwoThreeShape")
    TwoThreeShape(inlets(0), inlets(1), outlets(0), outlets(1), outlets(2))
  }
}

an example usage for this weird shape: a stage that will pass through elements of 2 flows, while keeping a ratio of how many elements passed in the flows:

def ratioCount[X,Y]: Graph[TwoThreeShape[X,Y,X,Y,(Int,Int)],NotUsed] = {
  GraphDSL.create() { implicit b =>
    import GraphDSL.Implicits._

    val x = b.add(Broadcast[X](2))
    val y = b.add(Broadcast[Y](2))
    val z = b.add(Zip[Int,Int])

    x.out(1).conflateWithSeed(_ => 1)((count,_) => count + 1) ~> z.in0
    y.out(1).conflateWithSeed(_ => 1)((count,_) => count + 1) ~> z.in1

    TwoThreeShape(x.in,y.in,x.out(0),y.out(0),z.out)
  }
}
