I've started playing with that idea a while ago as shown in this short video: http://vimeo.com/22722581

There's a live demo of that web application running here: http://tryrabbitmq.github.com/ using Canvas too.

You can add queues and exchanges, bind them, create consumers, publish messages, add callbacks to messages and so on.


a) It's an early prototype, code needs clean up, design needs UX improvements, etc.
b) There's a fake implementation of RabbitMQ in Javascript… basically to simulate how things work and prototype on top of that. (I've could have used Websocktes with a real RabbitMQ).
c) There's a silly bug now where messages get fanout'ed to consumers instead of being "round robin" to them. 

And most important, by no means this plans to compete with your tool. Perhaps it can be useful for inspiration.
