Project description

dramatiq-pg -- Postgres Broker for Dramatiq

dramatiq is a simple task queue implementation for Python3. dramatiq-pg provides a Postgres-based implementation of a dramatiq broker.

The project is not feature complete yet.


  • Super simple deployment.
  • Message payload stored as native JSONb.
  • All messages in a single table.
  • All data are wrapped in a dedicated schema.
  • Uses LISTEN/NOTIFY to keep worker sync. No polling.
  • Reliable thanks to Postgres MVCC.
  • Using plain psycopg2. No ORM.
  • Requeueing of failed tasks.


  • Install dramatiq-pg package from PyPI:
    $ pip install dramatiq-pg
  • Apply dramatiq_pg/schema.sql file in your database:
    $ psql -f dramatiq_pg/schema.sql
  • Before importing actors, define global broker with a connection pool:
    import dramatiq
    import dramatiq_pg
    import psycopg2.pool
    pool = psycopg2.pool.ThreadedConnectionPool(0, 4, conninfo)

Now declare/import actors and manage worker just like any dramatiq setup.


  • Rejecting message.
  • Process missed notifies while resuming worker.
  • Result storage as JSONb.
  • Delayed task.
