= revenant

== DESCRIPTION:

Death is only a beginning. Failure will not be forgotten.

== FEATURES:

  • Dead simple distributed locking
  • Start as many masters as you want, only one will execute at a time
  • Currently supports MySQL GET_LOCK()

== SYNOPSIS:

Have some work that needs to be done without worrying about mutual exclusion? Lots of scheduled jobs to coordinate that must not interfere? Want that work to keep happening when servers die?

!/usr/bin/env ruby

require 'revenant' task = revenant(:example) task.on_load { require 'config/environment.rb' } task.on_exit { something_to_do_last }

start working and exit the parent process:

task.run { some_work_protected_by_mysql_lock }

Want to run without a distributed lock? task.lock_function { true } Want your code to sleep forever? task.lock_function { false }

See the 'example' directory for more.

== REQUIREMENTS:

  • mysql (not a dependency, but you will probably want it)

== INSTALL:

  • gem install revenant
