    asynq is pretty good. Used in prod at a lot of places. yes, the releases do lag. And some minor bugs, but other than that it could work for most use cases. There is also https://github.com/kalbhor/Tasqueue, the API is still very young, but its features are very promising.

  • Faktory

    Language-agnostic persistent background job server

  • 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.

  • goque
