The cleanest way to integrate background processing into your application.
Backgrounded provides a thin wrapper around any background processing framework that implements the Backgrounded handler API which makes it trivial to swap out processing frameworks with no impact to your code.
clean and concise API which removes any dependency on external “worker” jobs and allows you to execute any model method in the background
integrates with any background processing framework (DelayedJob, Resque, JobFu, Workling, etc)
background methods can be actually unit tested by using an 'in process' runner
#declaration class User backgrounded :do_stuff def do_stuff # do all your work here end end #usage user = User.new user.do_stuff_backgrounded
Command line installation
sudo gem install backgrounded
Rails environment.rb configuration
Bundler Gemfile configuration
Backgrounded includes several configurable implementations out of the box for most popular background frameworks. If your framework isn't included, it's trivial to write your own implementation. Submit a patch and we may consider it for official distribution!
