Werken is a gearman server written in Erlang. Werken means "work" in Dutch, which seemed appropriate.

Getting started

Check out the Makefile for the different things you can do. The easiest way to get up and running is by running the included shell script: This will compile a release and drop you into an erlang console.

A few notes

  • This is my first real Erlang project. I'm sure the code is wildly inefficient, and completely non-idiomatic. Constructive criticism is appreciated.
  • This code was written and tested against Erlang R16B. Earlier versions may or may not work.

Known issues

  • Intermittent crashes under high load
