guard plugin for auto restarting resque processes in dev mode when your code changes

branch: master
README.markdown

Guard::Resque

Guard::Resque automatically starts/stops/restarts resque workers

forked from Guard::Delayed

Install

Please be sure to have Guard installed before continue.

Install the gem:

gem install guard-resque

Add it to your Gemfile (inside test group):

gem 'guard-resque'

Add guard definition to your Guardfile by running this command:

guard init resque

Usage

Please read Guard usage doc.

I suggest you put the resque guard definition before your test/rspec guard if your tests depend on it being active.

Guardfile

guard 'resque', :environment => 'development' do
  watch(%r{^app/(.+)\.rb$})
  watch(%r{^lib/(.+)\.rb$})
end

Feel free to be more specific, for example watching only for app/models and app/jobs to avoid reloading on a javascript file change.

Options

You can customize the resque task via the following options:

  • environment: the rails environment to run the workers in (defaults to nil)
  • task: the name of the rake task to use (defaults to "resque:work")
  • queue: the resque queue to run (defaults to "*")
  • interval: the interval to use for checking for new resque jobs (defaults to 5)
  • count: the number of workers to include (defaults to 1)
  • verbose: whether to use verbose logging (defaults to nil)
  • vverbose: whether to use very verbose logging (defaults to nil)
  • trace: whether to include --trace on the rake command (defaults to nil)
  • stop_signal: how to kill the process when restarting (defaults to QUIT)

Guard::Resque Authors

Jacques Crocker

I hacked this together from the guard-delayed gem for use with Resque. All credit go to the original authors though. I just search/replaced and tweaked a few things

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
