💂 Aide-De-Camp

Built with ❤️ by Zero Assumptions

Aide-De-Camp is a backend agnostic delayed job queue. Very similar to girl_friday from the Ruby world.

Notable features:

  • Asynchronous. Built from the ground-up using async/await for maximum concurrency.
  • Backend agnostic[^1]. This crate won't force you to run any additional software you don't want to.
  • Flexible scheduling. Schedule your job to run right now, in time relative to now or at a specific future time.
  • Binary Payloads. Job payloads serialized with bincode for maximum speed and space efficiency.
  • Concurrency limits. Specify desired concurrency for each runner.
  • Job Router. Run as many job types as you want and limit which runners can process which jobs.
  • Cross Platform. Runs anywhere rust has standard lib.
  • Traced. All important functions are instrumented.

Getting started


Pick a backend[^1] that suits you and add following to your Cargo.toml:

# Cargo.toml

aide-de-camp = "0.1.0"
aide-de-camp-sqlite = "0.1.0"  # Or any other avaiable backend


aide-de-camp-sqlite has pretty detailed example of how to use this crate.


  • core. Traits and error types meant to be used by aide-de-camp ecosystem.
  • runner. Optional module (runner feature enabled by default) that contains default implementations of runner, job router and types required for their work.

[^1]: Currently, only SQLite supported (aide-de-camp-sqlite), but PostgreSQL backend is coming soon!
