django-celery provides Celery integration for Django; Using the Django ORM and cache backend for storing results, autodiscovery of task modules for applications listed in INSTALLED_APPS, and more.

Using django-celery

To enable django-celery for your project you need to add djcelery to INSTALLED_APPS:

INSTALLED_APPS += ("djcelery", )

then add the following lines to your

import djcelery

Everything works the same as described in the Celery User Manual, except you need to invoke the programs through

Program Replace with
celeryd python celeryd
celeryctl python celeryctl
celerybeat python celerybeat
camqadm python camqadm
celeryev python celeryev
celeryd-multi python celeryd_multi

The other main difference is that configuration values are stored in your Django projects' module rather than in

If you're trying celery for the first time you should start by reading Getting started with django-celery

Special note for mod_wsgi users

If you're using mod_wsgi to deploy your Django application you need to include the following in your .wsgi module:

import djcelery


The Celery User Manual contains user guides, tutorials and an API reference. Also the django-celery documentation, contains information about the Django integration.
