a lightweight alternative.

  • written in python
  • no deps outside the standard lib, except Redis (or you can roll your own backend)
  • support for Django

supports:

  • multi-threaded task execution
  • scheduled execution at a given time
  • periodic execution, like a crontab
  • retrying tasks that fail
  • task result storage

Huey's API

from huey import RedisHuey, crontab

huey = RedisHuey('my-app', host='redis.myapp.com')

@huey.task()
def add_numbers(a, b):
    return a + b

@huey.periodic_task(crontab(minute='0', hour='3'))
def nightly_backup():
    sync_all_data()
