RabbitMQ Queue Driver

Build Status

This plugin use RabbitMQ to process background jobs for Kanboard.


  • Frederic Guillot
  • License MIT


  • Kanboard >= 1.0.29
  • PHP >= 5.3.3
  • RabbitMQ


You have the choice between 3 methods:

  1. Install the plugin from the Kanboard plugin manager in one click
  2. Download the zip file and decompress everything under the directory plugins/RabbitMQ
  3. Clone this repository into the folder plugins/RabbitMQ

Note: Plugin folder is case-sensitive.


By default this plugin assume that RabbitMQ is running on localhost. To change the default values, define those parameters in your config file:

define('RABBITMQ_QUEUE', 'kanboard_queue');
define('RABBITMQ_EXCHANGE', 'kanboard_exchange');
define('RABBITMQ_HOSTNAME', '');
define('RABBITMQ_PORT', 5672);
define('RABBITMQ_USERNAME', 'guest');
define('RABBITMQ_PASSWORD', 'guest');

You also need to run the Kanboard's worker:

/path/to/kanboard/cli worker

The worker must have the same permissions as the web application (same user). You should run the worker with a process manager like supervisord or similar.
