Utopia Queue is a powerful Queue library. This library is aiming to be as simple and easy to learn and use. This library is maintained by the Appwrite team.

Although this library is part of the Utopia Framework project it is dependency free and can be used as standalone with any other PHP project or framework.

Getting Started

Install using composer:

composer require utopia-php/queue

Init in your application:


require_once __DIR__ . '/../../vendor/autoload.php';

// Create a worker using the Swoole adapter
use Utopia\Queue;
use Utopia\Queue\Message;

$connection = new Queue\Connection\Redis('redis');

if ($connection->ping()) {
    var_dump('Connection is ready.');
} else {
    var_dump('Connection is not ready.');

$adapter = new Queue\Adapter\Swoole($connection, 12, 'my-queue');
$server = new Queue\Server($adapter);

    ->action(function (Message $message) {

    ->action(function ($error) {
        echo $error->getMessage() . PHP_EOL;

    ->action(function () {
        echo "Worker Started" . PHP_EOL;


// Enqueue messages to the worker using the Redis adapter
$connection = new Redis('redis', 6379);
$client = new Client('my-queue', $connection);

    'type' => 'test_number',
    'value' => 123

System Requirements

Utopia Framework requires PHP 8.0 or later. We recommend using the latest PHP version whenever possible.
