= Why double fork? Well, to original fork didn't work for me... = Merb fork of BackgrounDRb Based on the 1.0.3 version of backgroundrb this is a hacked port to MERB. Some areas need tyding up but it works for all basic cases. Contributions welcome! == Installation (1) Install gem provided in /pkg into your app's gem repository (which has to be named gems) ex. #cd ~/path/to/app #mkdir gems #gem install ~/path/to/bdrb_merb.gem -i gems --no-ri --no-rdoc -l (2) Add to config/init.rb (Merb): require 'backgroundrb_merb' (3) Create configuration file: #rake bdrb:setup == Usage Workers are created in app/workers To create new worker: merb-gen worker WorkerName To start BackgroundRB: rake bdrb:ctl:start Control+C to stop To run in background: rake bdrb:ctl:daemonize And to stop it: rake bdrb:ctl:stop = BackgrounDRb BackgrounDRb is a Ruby job server and scheduler. Its main intent is to be used with Ruby on Rails applications for offloading long-running tasks. Since a Rails application blocks while serving a request it is best to move long-running tasks off into a background process that is divorced from http request/response cycle. This new release of BackgrounDRb is also modular and can be used without Rails so that any Ruby program or framework can use it.
