Do you have scaling problems with your laravel queues? Install, deploy and bother less!

Thanks to the severless approach it's very easy to scale parts of your software. This projects adds native laravel queue support.

Thanks to brefphp/bref and serverless/serverless which do the heavy lifing here.

This package will automatically register the ServiceProvider within your laravel application.

Usage instructions

  1. Configure your application to use SQS queues (please refer to the official laravel documentation)
  2. Install this package through composer
  3. Add the example artisan.php to the root directory of your project
  4. Update your serverless.yml with a new handler using the artisan.php

Example artisan.php

<?php declare(strict_types=1);

use App\Console\Kernel;

$appRoot = getenv('LAMBDA_TASK_ROOT');
require_once $appRoot . '/vendor/autoload.php';
require_once $appRoot . '/bootstrap/app.php';

/** @var Kernel $kernel */
$kernel = app(\Illuminate\Contracts\Console\Kernel::class);

$status = $kernel->handle(
    $input = new Symfony\Component\Console\Input\StringInput(getenv('ARTISAN_COMMAND')),
    new Symfony\Component\Console\Output\ConsoleOutput

$kernel->terminate($input, $status);

Example serverless.yml

        handler: artisan.php
            ARTISAN_COMMAND: 'sqs:work sqs --tries=3 --sleep=1 --delay=1'
            - ${bref:layer.php-73}
            - sqs:
                  arn: arn:aws:sqs:region:XXXXXX:default-queue
                  batchSize: 10

        handler: artisan.php
            ARTISAN_COMMAND: 'sqs:work sqs --queue=another-queue --tries=3 --sleep=1 --delay=1'
            - ${bref:layer.php-73}
            - sqs:
                  arn: arn:aws:sqs:region:XXXXXX:another-queue
                  batchSize: 10


  • Test FIFO queues
  • Partial failures should not "re-send" new messages, instead we should delete successful messages and throw an exception if at least 1 job failed inside the batchsize
  • (In case the above point will work - this becames obsolete) Dead-Letter-Queue support (native by reading the AWS settings or custom?)
