Please follow the new tutorial at:

django-celery provides Celery integration for Django; Using the Django ORM
and cache backend for storing results, autodiscovery of task modules
for applications listed in ``INSTALLED_APPS``, and more.

Using django-celery

To enable ``django-celery`` for your project you need to add ``djcelery`` to

INSTALLED_APPS += ("djcelery", )

then add the following lines to your ````::

import djcelery

Everything works the same as described in the `Celery User Manual`_, except you
need to invoke the programs through ````:

===================================== =====================================
**Program** **Replace with**
===================================== =====================================
``celery`` ``python celery``
``celery worker`` ``python celery worker``
``celery beat`` ``python celery beat``
``celery ...`` ``python celery ...``
===================================== =====================================

The other main difference is that configuration values are stored in
your Django projects' ```` module rather than in

If you're trying celery for the first time you should start by reading
`Getting started with django-celery`_

Special note for mod_wsgi users

If you're using ``mod_wsgi`` to deploy your Django application you need to
include the following in your ``.wsgi`` module::

import djcelery


The `Celery User Manual`_ contains user guides, tutorials and an API
reference. Also the `django-celery documentation`_, contains information
about the Django integration.

You can install ``django-celery`` either via the Python Package Index (PyPI)
or from source.

$ python migrate djcelery

For those who are not using south, a normal ``syncdb`` will work::

$ python syncdb
