Last update: 2020-01-28 20:31:55 UTC


Trigger Laravel Events with mulitple workers, threads, delays & throttles.

minimum-stability: dev

This package uses react-thread-pool that is a dev release and this package itself is very experimental.


  • Laravel 5.2.*
  • PHP >= 5.4, only tested on 7.
  • pcntl
  • Linux/Unix


Install with composer

composer require askedio/laravel-event-worker

Register the provider in config/app.php.


Publish the config.

php artisan vendor:publish


The default config uses the App\Events\FetchTwitterEvent event, create it or edit configs/event-workers.php to use your events.

Create the event.

php artisan make:event FetchTwitter

Edit app/Events/FetchTwitterEvent.php and make it do something, like..

public function __construct($iteration)
    echo "Hello world.".PHP_EOL;

Certainly you'll put stuff in the listener and make a proper event, but you get the idea.

Run it.

php artisan events:serve


In configs/event-workers.php you define the events you want to run.

return [
  'twitter' => [              // name
      'delay'    => 1,        // delay between creating threads
      'throttle' => '1:1',    // throttle for creating threads
      'workers'  => 1,        // number of workers to create
      'threads'  => [
          'min'     => 1,     // minium threads per worker
          'max'     => 3,     // maximum threads per worker
          'timeout' => 30,    // thread time out
      'class' => \App\Events\FetchTwitterEvent::class, // your event class


Ya right. I aint got time for that.


That'd be swell. Send a PR.
