In memory queue system prioritizing tasks
In memory queue system prioritizing tasks.
$ npm install --save grouped-queue
The constructor takes an optional array of task groups. The first
String name will be the first queue to be emptied, the second string will be the second group emptied, etc.
By default, the constructor will always add a
default queue in the last position. You can overwrite the position of the
default group if you specify it explicitly.
var Queue = require'grouped-queue';var queue = 'first' 'second' 'third' ;
Add a task into a group queue. If no group name is specified,
default will be used.
Implicitly, each time you add a task, the queue will start emptying (if not already running).
Each task function is passed a callback function. This callback must be called when the task is complete.

You can register tasks in queues that will be dropped if they're already planned. This is done with the
once option. You pass a String (basically a name) to the
// This one will eventually runqueueadd method once: "readDB" ;// This one will be dropped as `method` is currently in the queuequeueadd method3 once: "readDB" ;
You can register a task without launching the run loop by passing the argument
queueadd method run: false ;
Bind your tasks with context and arguments!
var/* you get `models` data here! */;queueadd taskbindnull models ;
This event is called each time the queue emptied itself.
