android-job - Android library to handle jobs in the background.

  •        22

A utility library for Android to run jobs delayed in the background. Depending on the Android version either the JobScheduler, GcmNetworkManager or AlarmManager is getting used. You can find out in this blog post or in these slides why you should prefer this library than each separate API. All features from Android Oreo are backward compatible back to Ice Cream Sandwich. Starting with version 1.3.0 the library will use the WorkManager internally, please read the documentation and opt-in.

chronos - Fault tolerant job scheduler for Mesos which handles dependencies and ISO8601 based schedules

  •    Scala

Chronos is a replacement for cron. It is a distributed and fault-tolerant scheduler that runs on top of Apache Mesos that can be used for job orchestration. It supports custom Mesos executors as well as the default command executor. Thus by default, Chronos executes sh (on most systems bash) scripts. Chronos can be used to interact with systems such as Hadoop (incl. EMR), even if the Mesos agents on which execution happens do not have Hadoop installed. Included wrapper scripts allow transfering files and executing them on a remote machine in the background and using asynchronous callbacks to notify Chronos of job completion or failures. Chronos is also natively able to schedule jobs that run inside Docker containers.

crono - A time-based background job scheduler daemon (just like Cron) for Rails

  •    Ruby

Crono is a time-based background job scheduler daemon (just like Cron) for Ruby on Rails. Currently, there is no such thing as Ruby Cron for Rails. Well, there's Whenever but it works on top of Unix Cron, so you can't manage it from Ruby. Crono is pure Ruby. It doesn't use Unix Cron and other platform-dependent things. So you can use it on all platforms supported by Ruby. It persists job states to your database using Active Record. You have full control of jobs performing process. It's Ruby, so you can understand and modify it to fit your needs.

Faktory - "Takin' care of business, workin' overtime"

  •    Go

At a high level, Faktory is a work server. It is the repository for background jobs within your application. Jobs have a type and a set of arguments and are placed into queues for workers to fetch and execute.You can use this server to distribute jobs to one or hundreds of machines. Jobs can be executed with any language by clients using the Faktory API to fetch a job from a queue.

Please refer to the full protocol doc for details.

Job Scheduler

  •    Java

The Job Scheduler is used for automation - for example, process automation using the free database systems MySQL, PostgreSQL or Firebird or using SQL Server, Oracle or DB2. You can use the Job Scheduler to launch executable files and shell scripts and to run database procedures automatically. Jobs are configurable as Web Services providing interoperability with enterprise applications.

dagobah - Simple DAG-based job scheduler in Python

  •    CSS

Dagobah is a simple dependency-based job scheduler written in Python. Dagobah allows you to schedule periodic jobs using Cron syntax. Each job then kicks off a series of tasks (subprocesses) in an order defined by a dependency graph you can easily draw with click-and-drag in the web interface. Dagobah lets you retry individual tasks from failure, sends you helpful email reports on job completion and failure, keeps track of your tasks' stdout and stderr, and persists its information in various backends so you don't have to worry about losing your data.

OfflineSampleApp - Sample Offline-First MVVM app that uses Android Priority Job Queue, Room, Retrofit2, LiveData, LifecycleObserver, RxJava2, Dagger Android

  •    Java

Offline App (or Offline-First App) enables user to seamlessly interact with it by using local device storage and then synchronizing the data with some remote storage (cloud database, etc) later via a background process. This app is a working sample that showcases one way of implementing offline commenting capability on Android platform. Users' comments are stored in local Room database first. Then a background job is spawned to synchronize local data with remote database if and when Internet connection is available.

Trigger - JobScheduler is a good feature of Android Lollipop, but what a pity only Lollipop.

  •    Java

Do you know JobScheduler which is new added in Android Lollipop version? It is a job scheduler as its name. Define your own job, which need some conditions to happen, suit it up with such as device charging or unmeterred network(just like wifi, what else we have?) or device idle status, then throw it to the JobScheduler framework, your job will happen while all these conditions are satisfied. Awesome feature, isn't it? But a pity is it's only available above API 21. So I try my best to copy it to API 14 and named it Trigger. Good question! In my opinion and according to the test result, it do CAN, and I think Trigger can do more.

Resque - Job queue in Ruby

  •    Ruby
