jobberTrack - A simple way to create and see the status of jobs with redis

It uses redis to store objects with their state and store extra information when it is finished.

npm install jobber-track
npm test
    var client = redis.createClient("","","");
    var track = new JobberTrack.Handler(client);
    // create a new job 
    track.create(12, function(errjob) {
        // Start the job 
        job.start(function(errreply) {
            // what you need to do 
            job.finish("some data to store", function(errreply) {
                // The job is finished 
            });
        });
    });
 
    // get the state of a job 
    var client = redis.createClient("","","");
    var track = new JobberTrack.Handler(client);
    // create a new job 
    track.get("job id", function(errjob) {
        if (job.state == "finished") {
            console.log(job.data);
        }
    });

There is no concistency guarantee never start/finish/fail a job you haven't created. You should only check the status of the jobs you haven't created. MODIFYING THEM WILL CREATE INCONSISTENCY.

new JobberTrack.Handler(redisClient, resourceFactory) Creates a new JobberTrack ressourceFactory is optional if it is not provided we will use local timestamps as keys.

setDefaultTimeout(timeout) set the default timeout of all the jobs created by this JobberTrack to timeout

create(timeout, callback) Creates a new job with the status 'waiting' and call callback(err, resource) where resource is a JobberTrack.Resource . timeout can be omited if it has been set previously for the JobberTrack using setDefaultTimeout()

A resource can have 4 states: waiting, running, failed, finished. running is only accessible from waiting and failed or finished is only accessible from running.

new JobberTrack.Resource(client, id) this should only be called through a factory and by JobberTrack.create(). Creates a new Resource and will use the redis client client and the key id.

start(callback) set the status of the job to running

fail(callback) set the status of the job to failed

finish(data, callback) set the status of the job to finished and add to the key-value store the data.

getValue() returns what is stored in the redis (it is not automatically updated when it is changed on the redis store).

Create your own resource factory if you want to change the way ids are created.

create(client) Creates an new JobberTrack.Resource that will use the client client.
