MultiWorker

Build Status Code Climate Dependency Status

MultiWorker provides a common interface to the (many) Ruby queueing/worker libraries. They are all very similar, but provide slightly different interfaces. This makes it difficult to switch from one library to another, or to use multiple libraries at the same time.

Similar to MultiJSON or ExecJS, MultiWorker automatically detects installed queuing libaries and the correct adapter is loaded up by default. Changing queueing libraries does not require any change to worker code, as long as the standard interface is used.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'multi_worker'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install multi_worker

Basic Usage

Define worker

require 'sidekiq'
require 'multi_worker'

class ExampleWorker
  worker

  def perform(foo, bar)
    # long running code
  end
end

Queue jobs

ExampleWorker.perform_async(1, 2)
# Equivalent:
MultiWorker.enqueue(ExampleWorker, 1, 2)

Work jobs

Add to Rakefile:

require 'resque'
require 'multi_worker/tasks'

# If not using Rails, define your own :environment task that will require dependencies
task :environment do
  require 'resque'
end

Run:

QUEUE=default rake multi_worker:work

Advanced Configuration

MultiWorker.configure do
  default_queue :processing
  default_adapter :resque
  default_options :retry => true
end

class AdvancedWorker
  worker :queue => :background, :unique => true, :adapter => :sidekiq

  def perform(foo)
    ...
  end
end
