Resque + ActiveRecord - Redis
Branch: master


Swagger = Resque + ActiveRecord - Redis

Swagger marries the power and robustness of Resque with the trivial setup of delayed_job. Swagger allows you to use all the features of Resque ( without any of the “Redis” by adding one table to your existing database.

Getting Started

1. Add resque and swagger to your gem dependencies (order is important)

config.gem 'resque'
config.gem 'swagger'

2. In your rails app, create the file initializers/resque.rb with the following:

environment = ENV['RAILS_ENV'] || 'development'
database    = YAML::load(, '..', 'database.yml'))).result)[environment]

require 'swagger'

NOTE: This allows rails and the resque admin app to use the same initializer by executing at the console: resque-web config/initializers/resque.rb

3. Create an active record migration

create_table :resque_values do |table|
  table.column :key,      :string
  table.column :key_type, :string
  table.column :score,    :integer
  table.column :value,    :text

add_index :resque_values, :key
add_index :resque_values, [:key, :key_type]

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
