Communicate Through RabbitMQ Using NodeJS and Fastify

If we have two or more services that need to talk to each other but it is allowed to be asynchronous, we can implement a queue system in our system using RabbitMQ. RabbitMQ server will maintain all queues and connections to all services connected to it. This post will utilize Fastify as a NodeJS framework to build our program. This framework is similar to Express but implements some unique features like a plugin concept and an improved request-respond handler. First, we need to create two plugins, one is for sending a message, another one is for consuming the sent message. At first, we will make it using a normal queue.
