Django application. It's a simple system to process queue task in real time.

Project Description

It’s a simple system to process queue task in real time.


  • python 2.7
  • Django 1.6 through Django 1.9
  • django-redis-cache


  1. Download it from PyPi with pip install django-async-tasks

  2. Add “async_tasks” to your INSTALLED_APPS setting like this:

  3. Configure settings

  • Set setting name that defined for Redis in settings.CACHES. The default used ‘default’ setting name.

  • Setup log path and log filename. The default used for path os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'logs') and filename 'async-tasks.log'.

    ASYNC_TASKS_LOG_PATH = os.path.join(BASE_DIR, 'logs') # Log path
    ASYNC_TASKS_LOG_FILENAME = 'async-tasks.log' # Log filename
  1. Add cron job to execute every minute:

    python django_async_tasks

How to use?

  1. Add task to execute delayed_task(your_function, **params), return identification code
  2. Check is task ready ready_task(identification_code). Return statuses: 'PROCESS', 'SUCCESS', 'FAIL'
  3. Get result result_task(identification_code)


from async_tasks.utils import delay_task, ready_task, result_task

def test(a, b):
    return a + b

def test_delay_task():
    idn = delay_task(test, **{'a': 1, 'b': 2})
    status = None
    while status not in ['SUCCESS', 'FAIL']:
        status = ready_task(idn)

    if status == 'SUCCESS':
        print result_task(idn)
        print status

if __name__ == "__main__":
