Top 11 Python task-queue Projects

  • rq

    Simple job queues for Python

    Project mention: Redis Re-Implemented with SQLite | | 2024-04-14

    That's pretty cool. Reckon it would work with existing code that calls Redis over the wire for RQ?

  • flower

    Real-time monitor and web admin for Celery distributed task queue

  • WorkOS

  • huey

    a little task queue for python

    Project mention: Nextflow: Data-Driven Computational Pipelines | | 2023-08-10

    I've considered using Nextflow for bioinformatics pipelines but have yet to take the plunge. At work, I develop a proteomics pipeline that is composed of huey¹ tasks (Python library; simple alternative to Celery) which either use subprocess to call out to some external tool, or are just pure python. It runs in a worker container which is created by docker swarm, and all containers pull jobs from redis. For our scale, it works great. However, I don't have control over the resource utilization of individual steps, and in the past I've had issues with the pipeline blocking as a result of how I was chaining tasks together. I think something like Nextflow would remove these limitations, but one thing I think I would miss is the ability to debug individual pipeline steps locally with an interactive debugger. As far as I can tell, Nextflow has logging/tracing facilities but nothing quite like an interactive debugger. I'd be happy to be told I'm wrong, or even that I'm doing it wrong.



  • django-rq

    A simple app that provides django integration for RQ (Redis Queue)

    Project mention: Background jobs with Django | /r/django | 2023-05-30

    For simple stuff, I tend to use Although scheduling tasks there does not work well in my experience. If I need something to run by schedule, than better just plain cron.

  • procrastinate

    PostgreSQL-based Task Queue for Python

    Project mention: Running Procrastinate from command line throwing exception | /r/learnpython | 2023-06-05

    I did find this PR which adds a much more detailed description of what to do, although some of it is a bit outdated.
