Getting Started

The easiest way to work with this package is when it's installed as a Composer package inside your project. Composer isn't strictly required, but makes life a lot easier.

If you're not familiar with Composer, please see http://getcomposer.org/.

  1. Add php_gearman_daemons to your application's composer.json.

        "require": {
            "aporat/php_gearman_daemons": "dev-master"
  2. Run php composer install.

  3. If you haven't already, add the Composer autoload to your project's initialization file. (example)

    require 'vendor/autoload.php';

Quick Example


use \GearmanDaemons\WorkerAbstract;

class Worker_DoPrint extends WorkerAbstract {

    protected $_registerFunction = 'DoPrint';

    protected function _perform() {

        $body = unserialize($this->getWorkload());

        echo 'Printing...';
