Yet Another python queue backed by redis; but modern and compliant

Project description Documentation Status

Yet Another python queue backed by redis; but modern and compliant

Heavily inspired by hotqueue.


  • Compatible with the API of multiprocessing.Queue
  • LIFO, FIFO and Double-Ended variants
    • Each has a non-joinable and a joinable form (compatible with multiprocessing.JoinableQueue)
  • Additional convenience methods:
    • get_many(), put_many(), clear() for all queues
    • n_tasks() and n_in_progress() for joinable queues
  • Can be used as a context manager
    • Deletes the queue on exit
    • For Joinable variants, first waits for all tasks to be done
  • Can use custom serializers, or none at all
    • By default, uses the highest pickle protocol available, using the pickle5 backport if possible.
  • As thread-safe as the underlying Redis client instance
  • Simple queue watchers
    • yarqwatch: command-line progress bars for given queues
    • yarqserve: simple REST API and browser page for given queues


This package was created with Cookiecutter and the audreyr/cookiecutter-pypackage project template.
