Latest commit 16a84ba Jun 17, 2015 @pitr pitr Merge pull request #13 from grandmarnier/remove-default-concurrency
remove default concurrency option



Build Status

Guard::Sidekiq automatically starts/stops/restarts Sidekiq workers

forked from Guard::Resque


Please be sure to have Guard installed before continue.

Install the gem:

gem install guard-sidekiq

Add it to your Gemfile (inside test group):

gem 'guard-sidekiq'

Add guard definition to your Guardfile by running this command:

guard init sidekiq


Please read Guard usage doc.

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


guard 'sidekiq', :environment => 'development' do


You can customize the sidekiq task via the following options:

  • environment: the rails environment to run the workers in (defaults to nil)
  • queue: the sidekiq queue to run (defaults to default). Can supply a list of queues here.
  • logfile: sidekiq defaults to logging to STDOUT. Can specify a file to log to instead.
  • timeout: shutdown timeout
  • concurrency: the number of threads to include (defaults to 1)
  • verbose: whether to use verbose logging (defaults to nil)
  • stop_signal: how to kill the process when restarting (defaults to TERM)
  • require: location of rails application with workers or file to require (defaults to nil)
  • config: can specify a config file to load queue settings


Pull requests are very welcome! Make sure your patches are well tested. Please create a topic branch for every separate change you make.

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
