Simple multi driver queue system. This is essentially a port of the Laravel queue system.

Still very much a WIP not for use in production!

Although it would be better to use illuminate/queue directly it has too many dependancies that would replicate silverstripe/framework functionality at this time. By porting the code we can take advantage of SilverStripes command line framework and dependancy injection whilst still having a feature rich and multi backend queue system.

So our thanks go to Taylor Otwell et al for their excellent work on Laravel.

Usage Overview

Import QueueManager

Import the QueueManager class for ease of use.

Push A Job Onto The Queue

Use QueueManager::inst() to get an instance of the QueueManger class and then call the push() method passing in the name of a job handler and an array of data.

QueueManager::inst()->push('SendEmail', array('message' => $message));

Creating A Job Handler

Job handlers are simple classes that contain a run method with $job and $data parameters.

class SendEmail {

    public function run($job, $data)
        // Code for processing job goes here.
