Task management for ProcessWire
This ProcessWire module allows the execution of long-running (>> max_execution_time) jobs in ProcessWire.
It provides a simple interface to create tasks (stored as PW pages), to set and query their state (Active, Waiting, Suspended etc.), and to execute them via Cron, LazyCron or HTTP calls.
How does it work
See the Wiki
Tasker requires a Task template type to store task data.
Atm TODO this should be created manually with the following fields: title(Text), task_data(TextArea), task_state(Integer:0..10), task_running(Integer:0..1), progress(Integer:0..100), log_messages(TextArea) and signature(Text).
These fields will be automagically managed by Tasker.
The DataSet module performs long-running page imports and deletions using Tasker.
Check createTasksOnPageSave(), import() and purge() for more details.
The MarkupPdfPager module performs pdf transformations and indexing using Tasker.
