This is an app that integrates PHP-Resque into the Elefant CMS, so you can easily add background tasks to your apps.


PHP-Resque requires Redis 2.2+ as well as the PCNTL extension.


  1. Install the app into the apps/ folder.
  2. Copy apps/resque/conf/config.php to conf/app.resque.config.php and edit the settings there.

Adding jobs to the queue

First you need to initialize the app for adding jobs to the queue:


// Initialize the Resque app
$this->run ('resque/init');


After initializing the app, you can call Resque::enqueue() anywhere after that.


// Enqueue a job after calling resque/init
Resque::enqueue ('queue_name', 'JobName', array ('arg1' => 'value'));


Defining jobs

Defining a job in Resque is done by creating a class named after the job name with a perform() method that will be called on to perform the job:


class JobName {
	public function perform () {
		printf ("Test job, received: %s\n", $this->args['arg1']);


Save this to your app's lib/ folder, e.g., apps/myapp/lib/JobName.php.

Running the workers

To start running the workers, use the following command:

$ ./elefant resque/run

You can also override most of the settings by passing parameters to the command, including:

  • --help Display help output
  • --logging=(off|normal|verbose) Set the logging level
  • --pid-file=./resque.pid Set the PID file
  • --queue=queue_name Specify the queue to watch
  • --sleep-interval=5 Seconds to sleep for
  • --workers=5 Number of workers to spawn
