Pheanstalk is a pure PHP 5.2+ client for the beanstalkd workqueue. It has been actively developed, and used in production by many, since late 2008.

Created by Paul Annesley, Pheanstalk is rigorously unit tested and written using encapsulated, maintainable object oriented design. Community feedback, bug reports and patches has led to a stable 1.0.0 release in 2010.

beanstalkd up to the latest version 1.4 is supported. All commands and responses specified in the protocol documentation for beanstalkd 1.3 are implemented.

Usage Example


// register Pheanstalk class loader

$pheanstalk = new Pheanstalk('');

// ----------------------------------------
// producer (queues jobs)

  ->put("job payload goes here\n");

// ----------------------------------------
// worker (performs jobs)

$job = $pheanstalk

echo $job->getData();
