Sidekiq - Simple, efficient background processing for Ruby

  •    Ruby

Simple, efficient background processing for Ruby. Sidekiq uses threads to handle many jobs at the same time in the same process. It does not require Rails but will integrate tightly with Rails 3/4 to make background processing dead simple. Sidekiq uses multithreading so it is much more memory efficient than Resque (which forks a new process for every job).

node-worker-farm - Distribute processing tasks to child processes with an über-simple API and baked-in durability & custom concurrency options

  •    Javascript

Distribute processing tasks to child processes with an über-simple API and baked-in durability & custom concurrency options. Available in npm as worker-farm.This example is contained in the examples/basic directory.

Celery - Distributed Task Queue

  •    Python

Celery is an asynchronous task queue/job queue based on distributed message passing. It is focused on real-time operation, but supports scheduling as well. The execution units, called tasks, are executed concurrently on a single or more worker servers using multiprocessing, Eventlet, or gevent. Tasks can execute asynchronously (in the background) or synchronously (wait until ready).

greenlet - 🦎 Move an async function into its own thread.

  •    Javascript

Move an async function into its own thread. A simplified single-function version of workerize.

stockroom - πŸ—ƒ Offload your store management to a worker easily.

  •    Javascript

Offload your store management to a worker. Stockroom seamlessly runs a Unistore store (and its actions) in a Web Worker, setting up optimized bidirectional sync so you can also use & subscribe to it on the main thread.

workerize-loader - πŸ—οΈ Automatically move a module into a Web Worker (Webpack loader)

  •    Javascript

A webpack loader that moves a module and its dependencies into a Web Worker, automatically reflecting exported functions as asynchronous proxies.

node-fibers - Fiber/coroutine support for v8 and node.

  •    C++

Fibers, sometimes called coroutines, are a powerful tool which expose an API to jump between multiple call stacks from within a single thread. This can be useful to make code written for a synchronous library play nicely in an asynchronous environment. Note: node-fibers uses node-gyp for building. To manually invoke the build process, you can use node-gyp rebuild. This will put the compiled extension in build/Release/fibers.node. However, when you do require('fibers'), it will expect the module to be in, for example, bin/linux-x64-v8-3.11/fibers.node. You can manually put the module here every time you build, or you can use the included build script. Either npm install or node build -f will do this for you. If you are going to be hacking on node-fibers, it may be worthwhile to first do node-gyp configure and then for subsequent rebuilds you can just do node-gyp build which will be faster than a full npm install or node-gyp rebuild.

workly - A really simple way to move a function or class to a web worker. πŸ‹οΈ‍♀️→ πŸ˜„

  •    Javascript

Moving a function to a worker is really simple. The above examples only work when the class/function is not dependent on the containing scope, i.e. other libraries or global objects. But, you can create a custom worker.js file and move the code in there. In the worker, you can expose your object/function/class using workly.expose method.

worker-plugin - 🐳 Adds native Web Worker bundling support to Webpack.

  •    Javascript

Automatically bundle & compile Web Workers within Webpack. The best part? That worker constructor works just fine without bundling turned on too.

sw-precache-webpack-plugin - Webpack plugin that generates a service worker using sw-precache that will cache webpack's bundles' emitted assets

  •    Javascript

SWPrecacheWebpackPlugin is a webpack plugin for using service workers to cache your external project dependencies. It will generate a service worker file using sw-precache and add it to your build directory. A simple configuration example that will work well in most production environments. Based on the configuration used in create-react-app.

workq - Job server in Go

  •    Go

Workq is a job scheduling server strictly focused on simplifying job processing and streamlining coordination. It can run jobs in blocking foreground or non-blocking background mode. Workq runs as a standalone TCP server and implements a simple, text based protocol. Clients interact with Workq over a TCP socket in a request/response model with text commands. Please refer to the full protocol doc for details.


  •    Javascript

A fault-tolerant, multi-worker, multi-stage job pipeline built on Firebase

huey - a little task queue for python

  •    Python

huey is a little task queue in Python. It supports multi-process, multi-thread or greenlet task execution models. It can schedule tasks to execute at a given time, or after a given delay, schedule recurring tasks, like a crontab, retry tasks that fail automatically, task result storage.

Bee Queue - A simple, fast, robust job/task queue for Node.js, backed by Redis

  •    Javascript

A simple, fast, robust job/task queue for Node.js, backed by Redis.Bee-Queue is meant to power a distributed worker pool and was built with short, real-time jobs in mind. A web server can enqueue a job, wait for a worker process to complete it, and return its results within an HTTP request. Scaling is as simple as running more workers.

goworker - Go-based background worker

  •    Go

goworker is a Go-based background worker that runs 10 to 100,000* times faster than Ruby-based workers. goworker is compatible with Resque, so you can push your jobs with Rails and Resque, and consume them with Go in the background

Jesque - Job queue in Java

  •    Java

Jesque is an implementation of Resque in Java. It is fully-interoperable with the Ruby and Node.js (Coffee-Resque) implementations.

jailed - execute untrusted code with custom permissions

  •    Javascript

Jailed is a small JavaScript library for running untrusted code in a sandbox. The library is written in vanilla-js and has no dependencies. Export a set of external functions into the sandbox.
