Create ZMQ Client

You will need to npm install the module zeromq.

const zeromq = require('zeromq');

const subscriber = zeromq.socket('sub');
subscriber.on('message', async (topic, message) => {
  topic = topic.toString('utf8');
  message = message.toString('utf8')
  const alias = JSON.parse(message);
  console.log(JSON.stringify(alias, null, 2));
});

// connect to message producer
subscriber.connect('tcp://127.0.0.1:3030');
subscriber.subscribe('aliasrecord');
console.log('subscribed to syscoin topic aliasrecord');

Run your script with the following:

> node zmq-client.js 
subscribed to syscoin topic aliasrecord
