Code to support working with celery

Project description

PyPI Travis Codecov Documentation Supported Python versions License

Code to support working with Celery, a distributed task queue.

Overview (please modify)

This package contains utilities to wrap tasks with logging and to persist them if they fail.

It also supports Django administration for searching and deleting failed tasks, and management commands for rerunning failed tasks and deleting old ones.


(TODO: Set up documentation)

git tag -a X.Y.Z -m "Releasing version X.Y.Z"
git push origin X.Y.Z

Do not create a Github Release, or ensure its message points to the CHANGELOG.rst.
