job manager with concurrency and prioritization

Co Jobs

A job handler with concurrency and prioritization.

var jobs = require('jobs')()
jobs.concurrency = 5
co(function* () {
  jobs.push('task1id', task1)
  jobs.push('task2id', task2)
  var result1 = yield jobs.await('task1id')

Create a new jobs instance. Options:

  • concurrency: 1

Set the concurrency of the jobs.

Push a job to be run.

  • fn - currently jobs must be a thunk.
  • id - a unique job id as a string. Defaults to a random string.
  • priority: 0 - a priority as a number.

Await the result of an event. All job ids are emitted as events. There are additionally these events:

  • drain - when there are no more jobs to run

If a job by id exists, sets its priority to priority.
