sequelize-queue.js

A worker queue persisted to a Sequelize model

What's it for?

Uses Sequelize to implement a worker queue.

Packages like queue do a very nice job of keeping an in-memory job queue. But what about longer jobs where there's a danger that the process might crash before all the jobs are complete? Saving the jobs to a database via Sequelize comes to the rescue!

Current status

Build Status Dependency Status

API should be stable. It's not well-tested yet and doesn't have features like retrying on unsuccessful job execution etc.

Usage

Loading module

To load module:

var Queue = require('sequelize-queue');

Initialization

// create queue
var queue = new Queue(this.sequelize, {
	processors: function(data) {
		// worker function that executes the jobs
		// return a Promise
	}
});

// initialize the MySQL table which will contain the job list
queue.init().then(function() {
	// this runs once the queue is up and running
	
	// start workers running
	queue.start();
	
	// now do something else - the jobs will execute in the background
});

Add jobs to the queue

queue.addJob(data).then(function(job) {
	// this executes once the job is added to the queue NOT when the job is complete
	
	// `job` is a sequelize model instance with the details of the job
	// it can be reloaded from db and examined to get current status of the job
});

Tests

Use npm test to run the tests. Requires a database called 'sequelize_test' and a db user 'sequelize_test' with no password.
