Hmm, you interpret the ttl as a "block" window after the execution of a job? I.e. with a ttl of 10, no same job can be enqueued until 10 seconds after the previous job was finished? I think that the meaning of ttl was that a job should only be marked as "enqueued already" for a specific time. I.e. mark the job as not queued after 10 seconds, regardless of wether or not it was run already.

Could you make sure we don't change the way resque loner works here, please? :-)

Thanks for sharing your work!

I was looking for a plugin to do exactly that, a "lock after execution". And I didn't mean to change the way resque-loner works. That's why I created another variable to hold the "persist_ttl" value, making the original loner_ttl working as it should.

Maybe we could rename the "persist_ttl" instance variable to better express what it does? Something like loner_lock_ttl, loner_lock_after_execution_ttl...

Ah, okay, I'm a bit busy and perhaps rushed over your pull request too quickly :-) Apologies. I like the loner_lock_after_execution_ttl or loner_lock_after_execution_period!

Using loner_lock_after_execution_period, thanks @kunalmodi for the initial persist code.

Thanks @mateusdelbianco! Merged. If I don't push a new resque-loner release in the next week. If not, then I forgot about it and should be blamed for all the bad things.
