A distributed background job manager and runner for Rust. This is currently in PoC stage.

Set up

Look at the documentations for details. In general the one time setup involves:

  • Import later and required dependencies
  • Define some types to use as a payload to the background jobs
  • Generate the stub
  • Use the generated code to bootstrap the background job server


Fire and forget jobs

Fire and forget jobs are executed only once and executed by an available worker almost immediately.


One or many jobs are chained together to create an workflow. Child jobs are executed only when parent job has been finished.

Delayed jobs

Just like fire and forget jobs that starts after a certain interval.

Recurring jobs


Run recurring jobs based on cron schedule.

  • To fix: to delete recurring job.
