Python Shell
Latest commit a227d9d Sep 23, 2014 @KayEss Merge branch 'release/0.6'


Django Async is an asynchronous execution queue for Django with proper database transaction management.

Building a database backed task queue is a fairly trivial thing, but getting the database transactions exactly right is no simple matter.

Usage and documentation

New in the development branch

Job cancellation

There is now a separate cancelled field on jobs which can be used to mark those which are no longer to be run.


There is now an optional job grouping in async.models.Group. Jobs can be placed into a group so that related jobs can be tracked together.

Doing development

This project uses git flow. Don't forget to do git flow init -d
