lineup, a tiny queue server lineup is a very simple queue server. all it does is serve a binary-safe priority queue with a simple protocol inspired by redis and memcached. it's designed to be as small, simple, and hackable as possible. why? most of the reasons i made this are personal. - i wanted to - i learned a lot there are some pragmatic reasons too! - minimalist codebase - i don't agree with how other queue servers are implemented (except maybe resque) - i didn't make the other ones i kept lineup as simple as possible, because it needed to be that way. stuff like job timeouts, multiple queues, etc. can all be managed by client code. if your job takes too long, just stop processing and requeue it. want multiple queues? run multiple instances of lineupd. that's not to say that lineupd is complete, not to any degree. usage run lineupd and it will listen on :9876, and create a logfile lineupd.log and pidfile lineupd.pid. if you want to explicitly set any options, there are --port, --logfile, and --pidfile command line options. there is also the --timeout option, which sets the number of seconds to wait to disconnect an idle client. bugs - the --daemonize option doesn't work yet. most of the code is there, but i can't find a plain old fork() call in the go stdlib. help here would be great. credits (c) 2009 justin poliey http://justinpoliey.com inspired by: redis http://code.google.com/p/redis memcached http://memcached.org beanstalkd http://kr.github.com/beanstalkd suckless http://suckless.org
