  • Asynq

    Simple, reliable, and efficient distributed task queue in Go

    Hi, I'm starting a new project that involves distributing task on different (and possibly distributed) workers in Golang. So I'm looking for the best task queue library to use; for now the ones I like are the following (in no particular order): - asynq - machinery - taskq

  • taskq

    Golang asynchronous task/job queue with Redis, SQS, IronMQ, and in-memory backends

  • WorkOS

    The modern API for authentication & user identity. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.

  • sdk-java

    Temporal Java SDK

  • Faktory

    Language-agnostic persistent background job server

    At work we use https://github.com/contribsys/faktory

  • provisioning-backend

    Microservice providing API to provisioning capabilities

    https://github.com/RHEnVision/provisioning-backend/pull/373/files (search for pkg/worker directory, it is very small as you can see)

  • dejq

    Very Simple Job Queue

    https://github.com/lzap/dejq (experimental repo - slightly more complicated implementation with task grouping which is a feature which I ended up dropping, also has SQS and DB implementations which we ended up not using)
