redis-jobs ==========

redis-jobs

creates jobs and puts it on a reliable redis queue for workers

Basic Usage

npm install redis-jobs

 
var redisjobs = require('redis-jobs');
var queue = new redisjobs.Queue();
 
var job = queue.createJob({foo: 'bar'});
 
job.on('timeout', function(){
  console.log('request timed out on message bus');
});
 
job.on('reply', function(res){
 console.log(res);
});
 
job.start();
 
 
 
//On worker drone 
 
var worker = new redisjobs.Worker();
 
worker.on('job', function(job){
  var res = job.data.foo + 'baz';
  job.reply(res);
});
 
worker.listen();
 

Jobs are put onto a Redis List and popped off the list using BRPOPLPUSH; When a worker uses reply the message is deleted from the temporary work queue and sent over a publish message to the job requester. This allows jobs to queue up but the responses will be streamed back immediatly. Later releases will include a queue monitor interface to handle automatic load scaling.
