Troubleshooting? #21

Hi lostboy, Thanks for a great gem. It seems like the gem was working a while back, but now have stopped. I followed your instructions to config the environment variables, but the jobs are not being executed.

How would I go about troubleshooting?


My setup:
Heroku Stack Cedar
Rails 3.2.2
gem 'delayed_job_active_record'
gem 'workless', "~> 1.0.1"


It looks like heroku have made a small change to the environment variables I was using to detect heroku platforms. Give 1.0.2 a go and let me know how you get on.


Thank you! I remembered to add back in the Delayed Job gem. It is not required on Heroku. If anyone else encounters this issue, please be sure to have all 3 gems in your gem file:

gem 'delayed_job', '3.0.3'
gem 'delayed_job_active_record'
gem 'workless', "~> 1.0.2"

I am on
Ruby 1.9.2
Rails 3.2.2


Hi Lostboy,
Where should I include Delayed::Job.scaler = :heroku_cedar parameter?

I created workless.rb within Config/Initializers folder and added the following:
if Rails.env.production?
Delayed::Job.scaler = :heroku_cedar

However it causes an issue when I run rake assets:precompile

Thanks for your help.
