coil is a efficient background job queue for Postgres. The API is very similiar and indeed based upon swirl. In addition to the functionality swirl offers, however, coil can:

  • Queue asynchronous tasks for execution on an executor, whether it be smol, tokio or async-std
  • Queue functions with generics
  • SQL queries in coil are ran asynchronously wherever possible
  • Migrations are stored in the binary, and accessible via a migrate() fn. No more needing to copy-paste migration files!
